Lister Community School has celebrated a sixth consecutive year of improved GCSE grades.
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.
