Overall, 65 per cent of students at the all-girls’ school achieved an A*-C grade in both English and maths. The English results are particularly impressive, with 89pc achieving A* to C.

Students at the Deanery Road, Stratford, school achieved particularly highly in academic subjects, with more than a third (37pc) achieving the EBacc this year – gaining a C or above in each of English, maths, science, history or geography and a language.

Among the high achievers were Mirana Kqiqu and Maisha Chowdhury, who received nine A*s and two As each, and Amalia Hancig and Emma Norfolk, who both picked up seven A* grades.

Sarah Jacobs, head teacher at Sarah Bonnell, said: “I am so proud of our immensely talented students, whose hard work and dedication, backed up by great teaching and the support of their parents, has led to these fantastic results today.

“I would like to congratulate each and every one of our students, and wish them the very best for the next chapter in their lives – they have set themselves up for success.

“At Sarah Bonnell, we are committed to ensuring that all young people get the best opportunities to succeed, whatever their background, and I look forward to seeing them fulfil their potential.”
