With 100 per cent pass rate A to E, 80.6pc of grades achieved at the school in Morland Road, Ilford, were A* to C.

The school was quite quiet, when the doors opened at 9am this morning, with many students checking their results online before coming in to collect them.

Headteacher Keran Reilly said: “There is less of that big rush than we used to have a few years ago.

“But there are so many outstanding performances. We are very pleased with the results - it has been a good year.”
