The outgoing Eastbrook School headteacher has praised her pupils' "infectious enthusiasm" as they collect their GCSE results.
Valerie Dennis said she was pleased with the Dagenham Road, Dagenham school’s success, which saw 48pc achieve 9-4 in both English and maths - roughly equivalent to A*-C in the old-style grading.
In addition, 32pc achieved a 9-5 - a good pass - in both subjects, with 10pc of all grades across the subject a 7 or higher (equivalent to A*-A).
Ms Dennis said: “There are so many success stories – obviously the many students who achieved grades 9, 8 and 7 – but also those who worked so hard, learning English alongside all the other subjects, having joined Eastbrook in years 8, 9, 10 and some even in Y11.
“I will miss all the students and their infectious enthusiasm.”
