The High Street, Stratford, sixth form saw 64 pupils achieve A and A* grades in all their exams, with 18 getting three A*s or more.

In addition, 99 per cent of all grades were A*-C compared with just 77pc nationally while 88pc of all grades were A*-B.

LAE, which opened in 2012, focuses on A-level subjects that are most commonly required or preferred by universities.

Headmaster John Weeks said: “99pc of all grades at A*-C is our best result to date, is significantly above the national average, but, most importantly, it simply means that every student who comes to LAE makes incredible progress and achieves the top grades required to study at a top university.

“There is a culture here of like-minded ambition and aspiration. All our students want to achieve and all our staff are here to help realise that - well done everyone.”

The school received 20 offers for pupils at Cambridge and Oxford universities at the beginning of this year and are waiting on confirmation.
