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.”

Some of our Year 9 Triple scientists enjoyed a full day at Oxford University. They attended a lecture at the Museum of History of science titled ‘Penicillin, the Wonder Drug’  delivered by Professor Christopher Parkin.

The lecturer focused on the story of penicillin, the world’s first modern antibiotic. After the lecture the students carried out a synthesis and separation of an aromatic compound from orange at the Oxford University Chemistry Department.

To complete the day Year 9 found out about how botanical research contributes to development of drugs, at the Oxford University Botanic Garden.

Wimbledon – 28 June 2016

Wimbledon was huge!  I loved the view from the grass embankment the lawns were
perfect for sitting on and watching the massive TV, without any stress in the world.

Inside the grounds are amazing and the day was so lovely I got a nice ice cream to cool me down.  We had tickets to Court No2 and the 1st game we watched was where the Austrailian Nick Kyrgios beat Radek Štěpánek of the Czech Republic.

I also got to visit the museum and we played tennis against a coach. I would love to go again.
