The year 12 students have set the bar high as the first group to set the exams at the Stratford school.

Success stories include Praise Opara who received the string of top grades that she needed to land a summer placement at Cambridge University.

Lisa Kattenhorn, acting principal, said students had done “incredibly well” - while some teachers were reduced to tears by the fantastic results.
