The high-achieving girls’ school saw 121 students, 45 per cent, attain five or more A* and A grades.

Headteacher Rachel McGowan said she was “immensely proud” of students at the Plashet Grove, East Ham, school.

She said: “I believe our young women have achieved great success because they have shown fantastic resilience in their learning, never giving up when times were difficult and as a result have overcome the challenges GCSE courses present.

“We are immensely proud of their outstanding attitude to learning and the success this has brought them is well earned and will carry them forward with great purpose in their lives.”

Among those securing top grades was head girl Aminah Hussain, 16, who got 10 A*s and one A.

The 16-year-old said: “I’m so shocked. I feel ecstatic. I did not really expect it.

She now hopes to study A-levels at Woodford County before eventually studying medicine at university.

Other students who achieved 10 A*s and one A included Meera Trivedi, Areej Javaid and Iram Farooqui – all 16.
