Cllr Anntoinette Bramble, deputy mayor of Hackney, said: “Congratulations to everyone who collected their GCSE results.

“Yet again Hackney’s young people have excelled, and I’m very proud of all of our schools for the contribution they make in helping their pupils to make a great start in life. I wish all of our students the very best for the future.”

More figures to come.
