Fifty-six per cent of pupils achieved five A* to C grades including English and Maths, up 1pc on last year.

Among the outstanding individual results were Aashna Jethmalani and Indre Marciulynaite, who both achieved exclusively A and A* grades, including A* with distinctions in further maths.

Aashna picked up 10 A*s and a pair of As, while Indre scooped eight A*s and four As.

Another top-performer was Alexandra Scriitoru who came to the UK from Romania aged 10, and despite the initial language barrier, bagged herself an A* in English, plus five As and three Bs.
