Pupils at Wanstead High School celebrated getting their GCSE results today, with a significant number getting the very highest grades.
As schools adjust to the new GCSE marking system, Wanstead High was able to report a large number of students receiving the new top grade 9 in both English and maths.
This marks an increase in the equivalent A* and A grades from previous years.
This is the first year with the new numerical grading system for English and maths, which ranks papers between 1 and 9, with 9 being the highest.
The Recorder estimates a 4 is the equivalent to a C, a 6 is the equivalent to a B and a 7 to an A.
