Overall the school had a good day, with the number of students achieving at least five A* to C grades up 12 percent over the last two years. In comparison, the national figures for this time are relatively stable.

Polly Tollemache, of Barbauld Road, scored six A*’s amongst her results, and jokingly thanked her family for putting up with her during exam season:

“Thanks to all the teachers at Stoke Newington School, and also thank you to my parents and brother for keeping out of my way during exams,” she said. Polly hopes to now go on to do A-levels, followed by an art foundation course and then university.

Mahfuza Ahmed, of Clissold Road, was another planning for the future after an excellent set of results.

Mahfuza received four A*s and five A’s amongst her results, and is hoping to go in to a career involving maths or science.
