In addition, 34 girls - 13 per cent of the Plashet Grove, East Ham school’s cohort - achieved eight or more GCSEs at that level.

There were 30 girls who achieved grade 9s across English, English literature and maths, with two pupils - Anonna Chowdhury and Katelin Dharmajan - getting the top grade in all three subjects.

The school saw 188 pupils, or 71pc, gain five or more GCSEs including English and maths at grade C or 4 and above.

Headteacher Rachel McGowan said: “I congratulate Plashet girls on their superb success and know they would want me to recognise Plashet staff for their care, expertise and support.”

But she added: “I would remind everyone not to compare today’s results with previous years. We are now in a new educational landscape that will take time to settle and be understood.”
