Richard Micek, in charge of the Whalebone Lane North, Dagenham school, said eight per cent more students achieved A* or A grades compared to last year, with the number achieving A* to B up by more than 14pc.

“The Warren School are very pleased that in our second year as a standalone sixth form, the students have received another excellent set of examination results,” he said.

“The school has reached the national standard.”

He added: “The majority of students have secured places at a number of top universities.

“The Loxford School Trust is grateful to all the staff, parents and students for their hard work.”

Top performers included Muhammad Ehthisham Anwar, who achieved grades A*AA in maths, computer science and physics, respectively.

The 18-year-old’s impressive grades have bagged him a place at King’s College London, to study computer science with intelligent systems.

Reacting to his exam marks, he said: “I feel like they were good, a stepping stone for the next period of my life.”

He put his interest in his chosen degree subject down to technology “getting more and more involved with everyday life”.

Here, the “logical aspects” blended with creative channels in coding and developing hard- and software.

Lionel Wilson, 18, hopes his three A grades will help him achieve his dream of entering finance.

He racked up impressive marks in economics, maths and chemistry, and already has an offer to study economics and Japanese at SOAS.

Recounting a worried night ahead of results day, he said: “I was feeling sick — I didn’t know if I could sleep.”

Meanwhile Mhanaj Hossain, also 18, couldn’t believe her revision had paid off.

“I was predicted an A and two Bs,” she said. “But I got A*AC ... I’m quite proud of myself because I worked hard at it.”

Coming to the UK from Italy four years ago, she sat exams in art, media and Italian, but will head to Westminster University this autumn to study computer science.

Fellow 18-year-old Dorcas Owuse — AAB in Italian, Spanish and psychology — does not know what the future holds, but is nonetheless thankful for her place studying criminology at Nottingham.

“I don’t really know what I want to do at present, but I’m interested in covering different kinds of stuff at uni,” she said.
