All Saints Catholic School is celebrating the outstanding A-levels its sixth formers worked so hard to achieve in very difficult circumstances.
Final results as published by the Department of Education show pupils in Year 13 at the Dagenham school achieved a doubling of A*- A grades.
A third of all pupils achieved A*-B and overall, 98pc of pupils achieved A*-E.
Headteacher Clare Cantle said: “We are delighted that the release of these results has finally come, albeit with headlines and controversy only the night before, which has been troubling for all concerned.
“Students and staff have worked incredibly hard towards excellent outcomes for their future and I am confident their next steps will be rewarding.
“The standard of teaching and learning in our sixth form is truly impressive.
“We look forward to clearer, controversy-free sixth form results next year and I’d like to publicly thank all involved.”
