The deputy headteacher of Dagenham Park school said he was “delighted” with his pupils’ exam results.

The institution in School Road, Dagenham recorded its highest percentage of top GCSE grades, with almost a quarter of students achieving a grade 7 or above in the new maths exam.

English and maths GCSEs are now marked according to a 9 to 1 graded scale, with grades 9-7 equivalent to an A* or A.

Eight students achieved the top grade 9 in English, with a further six in maths.

Among them was Samuel Kesse, who achieved three grade 9s in English, English literature and maths, as well as six A*s and one A.

Meanwhile Sukesh Vijaybahskar celebrated his five A*s, two As and two 8s and a 9.

Deputy Head Chris Ash said: “I am delighted that the hard work of students, staff, parents and carers has been rewarded with so many top grades.”
