Year 11 students at Kingsford Community School were celebrating their GCSE results as 96 per cent of pupils scooped five A* to C grades.
When essential English and maths subjects were added into the equation, 69 per cent of students at the school in Kingsford Way, Beckton, reached the gold standard.
Outstanding pupils Albert Cobham and Remya Salimkumar secured scholarships worth £50,000 to study at Brighton College, partners with Kingsford, and they will begin his A-level studies there from September.
Joan Deslandes, headteacher, said: “I am very proud of our students and their achievements this summer; they have worked extremely hard and have been very positive, both in their studies and in their contributions to the life of the school.
“The high attainment of the students and their outstanding progress reflects the hard work of both staff and students.
