Students at the Warren School are celebrating their success in the new maths and English GCSEs.

Provisional results from the Whalebone Lane North, Dagenham school show 63 per cent of students achieved grades 9-4, equivalent to A*-C, in both subjects.

The revamped exams are marked according to a 9 to 1 graded scale, with grades 9-7 representing an A* or A.

Overall, 19 pupils achieved the new top grade.

Star performers included Nafisa Ahrafi, who achieved 9s in English literature and maths, an 8 in English, five A*s and two As.

Aliya Oliveros achieved 9s in both English exams, an 8 in maths, four A*s and A grades in chemistry, geography and art.

Headteacher Richard Micek said: “Once again, the hard work of the staff and students has allowed the year 11s to leave with outstanding results and pursue their preferred post-16 courses at the Warren School Sixth Form.”
