Pupils at Eastbrook School overcame the new grading system for English and maths GCSEs, achieving top marks in almost a fifth of all exams.

Figures from the school in Dagenham Road, Dagenham show 17 per cent of grades across all subjects were A*-A or equivalent – up 10pc on last year.

English and maths subjects used a new 9 to 1 graded system this year, with grades 9-7 equivalent to A* or A.

Three pc of the cohort achieved the top grade 9 for English or maths.

The share of students achieving the 9-4 measure rose to 53pc.

Star pupils Illora Ishaque and Blessing Omorodion achieved 12 A*-A grades, closely followed by Justina Voisnyte (nine).

Headteacher Valerie Dennis called the results “a credit to the staff and students.”

She said: “Our students remained focused and worked hard and our highly skilled, exceptional teachers managed the changes to the style and content of the new exams.”
