“We’re delighted with the improvement, and that we’ve done better than the national average,” she said.

“We also had ten students take GCSE maths a year early and all of those passed it as well.”

The school has also seen 44pc of students achieving at least five A*-C grades including English and maths.

That figure included head boy Om Dave, who achieved two A*s, six As, a B and a C, and deputy head girl Fatimati Gaye, who notched up five A*s, three As and two Bs.
