Pupils from the school, in Paragon Road, Hackney Central will go on to higher education, studying subjects from law to animation.

Students who completed BTEC Diplomas also celebrated a 100 per cent pass rate and 80 per cent achieved a Double Distinction (DD) or Double Distinction* (DD*) level, equivalent to two grade A or A* grades at A level.

Eboseta Ayemere, 18, said: “I’m ecstatic but slightly in shock. I worked harder this year than I have in my whole life and it’s paid off. I’m really grateful for all the encouragement and help with revision that my teachers gave me.”
