Exceptional results were achieved yet again at Central Foundation Girls’ School in Bow, where the proportion of A*-C grades rose to 82 per cent from 75 per cent A-C last year.

All of the 43 students taking their A2 levels achieved at least a pass, while six exams were awarded a top A* grade.

Shahada Begum, 18, of Bow, will start a sociology course at London School of Economics in September after gaining an A* in English Literature and an A in both Sociology and Religious Studies.

She said: “I haven’t told my parents yet, but they will be so proud when they find out.

“I was a little worried about the prospects for graduates leaving university, but I think after leaving the LSE you are pretty much guaranteed a job.”

Headteacher Dr Anne Hudson put the improved results down to better lesson planning and teacher interaction with pupils.

She said: “Better practice and assessment let students know what they were capable of and really motivated them.”
