Pupils at Marshalls Park School in Romford have been celebrating their GCSE successes today.
Assistant head teacher Judith Jackson spoke of the school’s pride over all of its students at the Petitts Lane school.
The school said 81 per cent of students had achieved a grade “above their expected level of progress” compared to the average national figure of 70pc.
Miss Jackson said: “We are very proud of all our students. It is wonderful for both students and staff who put in so much work to be able to share in their success together on results day.
“We wish all our Year 11s particularly the best of luck as they begin the next stages of education, work and training.”
