Loxford School of Science and Technology was a hive of activity yesterday morning as young people and their parents celebrated GCSE results.

The hard work paid off for the majority of students at the school, in Loxford Lane, Ilford, including 23 students who gained a grade nine in maths.

This summer marks the beginning of the end for the familiar A* to G grades.

Over the next three years, they will be replaced entirely with a scale numbered nine to one - with nine the highest result, and one the lowest.

For this set of pupils, English language, English literature and maths are the first exams to be transformed.

This year, 67 per cent of students achieved a grade 4 or higher in those three exams.

Eight students at the school achieved only 9s and 8s, A*s and As.
