The head of Our Lady’s Catholic High School said she “couldn’t be happier” with the results of her students.
Among the highlights of the Amhurst Park girls' school's results were three quarters of all chemistry A-level grades hitting A* to B, along with more than half of fine art and psychology results.
Almost two thirds of the health and social care BTEC students achieved distinctions. Prusha Ahmed got two distinctions and a merit in the subject.
She is going to study child nursing at City University. Head of Sixth Form Mr Bailey said Prusha was "one of the most hardworking students" he had ever met.
"Prusha has all of the qualities and skills needed to be an excellent caring professional," he said. "She has delivered first aid training to the visiting Year 5 students from local primary feeder schools, she has supported after school programmes, she regularly translates for people in our community and has a vocational activity log which is commendable."
Evita Remy-Benn achieved an A in fine art, a B in English literature and a B in textiles. She will go on to study art and design at Central St Martins and will specialise in fashion.
She said: "I am so happy to study fashion at Central St Martins, I have always wanted to do this."
