Barking and Dagenham council has applauded schools for their A-level successes.
It praised Robert Clack School of Science for its achievement of almost a third of pupils getting top grades of A* to A and sending three to Oxford.
Eastbury Community School was also singled out for its 100 per cent pass rate and more than half of students getting A* to B grades.
Councillor Evelyn Carpenter, member for educational attainment and school improvement, was over the moon with this year's results.
She said: "Once again, our young people have shown how talented they really are and I was delighted to find out that so many will be heading off to some of the best universities in the country, including Oxford and Cambridge.
