All Saints School in Dagenham is celebrating one of its best ever set of A-level results.

The number of students attaining A* or A grades has increased 85 per cent on last year. The number of papers which were A*-B was 49 pc and 99 pc achieved A*-E.

Ms Cantle, headteacher, said: “We are delighted with the results. They are a testament to the hard work put in by the students and the tremendous support given to them by their teachers and parents.

“All should be congratulated on this outcome at All Saints> It means more opportunities for our children at tertiary education and apprenticeships.

Nicholas Lau, who got AAB in chemistry, maths and physics and is off to study chemistry at York University, said: “The school have actually done really quite a lot for us. They have stepped in when we needed help and I couldn’t have done this without them.”

Shalewa Olayiwola, who got A*AA in biology, history and psychology and is off to study psychology at King’s College, London, said: “I’m just really happy. I definitely feel ready to make the step up and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
