More than two thirds of the pupils at the Stratford school achieved grades 4 and above in English and Maths, the equivalent of a C in the old GCSE system.

There were three pupils who gained 9s, which is higher than an A*, in chemistry, biology and physics, while one star student achieved nine 9’s, an 8 and two A*s.

Principal David Perks said: “This is a very good set of GCSE results and I’m really proud of our pupils’ hard work.

“There is more to do, but today’s results show that East London Science School provides children in east London with the opportunity to have a bright and successful future.”

Almost a third of pupils achieved an 8 or 9.

For those struggling to decide what to do next, the school will be holding an event to discuss applying to the East London Science School Sixth Form on Friday at 9am at The Clock Mill, E3 3DU. The school is asking for grades 6 or above in chosen A-level subjects, and students should bring along their GCSE results slip.
