Chobham Academy is celebrating sending its first pupil to Oxbridge.
Asmaa Mahamud, who achieved A grades in economics and Spanish and B in religious studies, will be heading to Oxford to read Arabic and Islamic studies.
The Cheering Lane, Stratford school, which opened in September 2013, saw nearly all its pupils secure a place at their chosen university.
Among the 13.5 per cent of students to achieve A and A* grades was Serina Kaur Sanger, who got straight As in drama, English literature and history.
She plans to study American and Canadian literature, history and culture at the University of Nottingham.
Other high-flyers include Eleanor Rose Duplock, who achieved A grades in English literature and history and A* in sociology and will be going to the London School of Economics to study social policy, and Jerin Anisah Abddin, who will be studying law at Queen Mary University after achieving A* in economics, A in history and B in psychology.
Executive principal Rebecca Hickey said: “It is a fantastic achievement for Asmaa to have achieved an Oxford University place, and testament to her hard work and dedication.
“I am very proud of the quality of our students’ results across a very broad range of subjects. We wish them all the very best of luck in their university careers.”
