Emmanuel and Edoardo Beltazar joined Rokeby School in October 2016, having previously lived and studied in Italy and India.

Despite that, they went on to achieve an incredible 27 9-7 and A*-A grades between them.

Both picked up 9s in the three science subjects as well as English literature, with Emmanuel also getting 9s in Spanish and maths. They also both scored A*s in music, Italian and further maths, with Edoardo also getting an A* in PE.

They are among the Barking Road, Canning Town school’s top achievers, with the top 10 pupils bagging an amazing 113 9-7 grades between them.

Hamza Sheikhey got straight nines in maths, biology, chemistry and physics, as well as an A^ in further maths - a grade which is above an A* and only available in that subject.

James Baah, who gained an A in maths and an 8 in further maths, said: “This is the most amazing feeling, I am so pleased with my results.”

The school saw particular success in maths, where more than 25pc of pupils gained grades 9-7.

Headteacher Charlotte Robinson said: “I am so very proud of our students.

“They have applied themselves to their studies and truly exemplify our school motto: Dare to be the best!”
