One of the stars of the show was Masuma Hadi, who achieved an 8 in maths and English literature, 7 in English language, A*s in chemistry, biology and physics and As in French, geography and history.

Masuma’s mother, Monwara Dorasat, said: “I am so happy that my daughter has achieved top grades while attending a school in Hackney, which is often publicised as being one of the worst boroughs.

A third of all results achieved by students at the Laburnum Street school were A* or A, with principal Chris Brown saying he is “immensely proud of them”.

Mr Brown said: “The students worked incredibly hard to fulfil their potential and have risen to the challenge of the new examination specifications.

“I would also like to pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of The Bridge Academy staff – congratulations to all involved.”
