The headteacher of Barking Abbey School today praised her pupil’s “fantastic” GCSE results.

This year a new 9 to 1 graded system was used in three subjects: English, English literature and maths, with grades 9-7 equivalent to A* or A.

Three quarters of students achieved grades 9-4 in both English and maths, with a third achieving an A*-A grade in English literature.

One fifth of students achieved top A*-A grades in maths, compared to 23pc in science.

Acting headteacher Jo Tupman said 10 pupils achieved double-digit A*-A or equivalent grades, including Sowmiya Gunabalasingam, Inaya Akhtar and Misha Iradukanda.

Tupman said they were the “best ever results” for the school in Sandringham Road, Barking.

She added: “There were fantastic results in many other subjects, which reflected the hard work, determination and aspirations of all of the students.

“Well done to you all and the best of luck in the courses that you choose for post-16 study.”
