These include Jola Bytyci, who will be heading to Oxford after getting three A* grades, while two pupils with A*AA grades, Ruth Addo-Boadu and Tahani Dahir, will be going to University College London and Kings College London respectively.

Other top achievers include Amira Kazi, who will be studying English language and literature at Oxford after getting A*A*A, Paige Harris, whose A*AA secured her a place to study liberal arts at Kings College London, and Alfie Pogmore, who got A*AA and is heading to the University of St Andrews to study physics.

More than 100 pupils from the Green Lane, Dagenham school have secured places at top universities, with others accepted onto apprenticeship programmes as a result of their performance.

The school saw 82 per cent of all grades at A*-C, with 22pc at A*-A.

For those studying Btecs, nearly half of all entries were graded at disctinction* or disctinction.

Deputy headteacher Richard Spandl said “These outcomes are a result of seven years of hard work from the pupils, teachers and their parents.

“The pupils have shown tremendous resilience throughout their time in sixth form and we couldn’t be more proud of them. They thoroughly deserve the successes they are enjoying today.”

Headteacher Russell Taylor added: “Despite the challenges of new curricula, our students have fulfilled their potential through hard work, dedication and the outstanding support of their teachers.

“I am, as always, exceptionally proud of all of them and can only imagine how proud their families must be.”
