Eastlea Community School is celebrating after a tenth of pupils picked up a clean sweep of top grades.
Among those to pick up a haul of 9-7s - the equivalent of an A* or A - was Sabrina Hossain, who overcame sleepless nights and helping her mum care for her baby sister to achieve superb results on GCSE results day.
She said: "I'm very, very happy with my results and pleased all my hard work paid off.
"I didn't expect to do this well as during my GCSEs, my friends and I were all panicking - even though we were revising - because exams give you a lot of pressure.
"All the teachers here are just so amazing! They prepared study clubs for us even though we never asked for them.

"They were all so helpful with intervention classes, working Saturdays, and practicing exam skills by doing test papers after school under exam conditions - that way I didn't stress too much when I did the real thing.
Fellow student Muna Mohamed credits using every last second available to knuckle down and revise hard for her excellent GCSE results.
