Hard work paid off for students picking up their A-level results at Kantor King Solomon High School.
The majority of pupils headed down to Forest Road, Barkingside after checking their grades online.
Fabin Zahir, 18, achieved three A grades in physics, maths and economics, which secured him a place at UCL to study physics.
“I worked really hard, I did every single past paper,” he told the Recorder.
“I expected the results as I worked everyday, even during the holidays without taking a break, and all the hard work paid off.”
“I am just about to go to lunch with my friends and then I will celebrate with my family. They are very happy.”
Sam Tuohy opened his results envelope to discover he had three A grades in chemistry, maths and physics.
The teenager has accepted an offer to study at the University of Loughborough to read automotive engineering.
He said that changes to modules he was studying by the exam board created extra stress for students.
“They changed the chemistry and physics subjects to exams only so there was no coursework,” he explained.
“It put increased pressure on everybody and it was a lot of preparation for one day.”
The school said they were celebrating “outstanding” results which demonstrated their continual improvement and commitment to excellent academic and pastoral care.
Headteacher Matthew Slater said: “We are delighted we have been able to maintain our excellent standard of results.
“Students hard work and dedication paid off. Many have gone on to their first choice to continue their studies in the future”
Almost three quarters of A-level pupils achieved grades between A* and C and 40pc of those studying maths and physics achieved A or A*.
Other notable results include Darcy Brown who achieved straight As in economics, mathematics and religious studies and Mitchell Chappell who scored three As in chemistry, mathematics and physics.
