Results at the school, in St Mary’s Road, Plaistow, have improved every year since 2010, when just 38 per cent of students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths.

This year, that figure was 64pc.

In individual subjects, 78pc of students achieved an A* to C in English, while 69pc did so in maths.

Anthony Wilson, who has overseen the school’s improvement after becoming headteacher in 2010, said: “I am incredibly proud of our students for the wonderful results they have achieved today – they have worked incredibly hard for them, and fully deserve their reward.

“The school has come a long way in the last six years – to improve GCSE results six years in a row is almost unheard of, and testament to our students, to our great teaching staff, and the support of our parents.”

Three students – Alexandru Apetrei, Tanjim Chowdhury and Sulayman Khan – achieved 10 A*, while others, including Mahima Begum, Ravneet Singh and Abdou Ndoye, collected seven.
