These hard-working students have all achieved the equivalent of a GCSE B in Maths.

The Year 8 pupils from Dagenham Park School in Dagenham picked up a level eight in their SATs tests.

If they had been taking GCSEs, normally sat by Year 11 students, they would have walked away with a B grade.

Maths teacher Pat Nedesan said: “These are the best results we’ve had for Year 8 pupils. It’s a fantastic achievement and we’re very proud of them all.”
