A new free school that opened in 2014 is marking its first set of GCSE results.
The results were "fantastic" according to the London Enterprise Academy's principal, Ashid Ali.
He said the Whitechapel school achieved the national average for pupil progress, with pupils getting a total of 25 grade 9s and more than 60 grade 8s, both equivalent to A* grades.
Pupils are going on to sixth forms including Brampton Manor, London Academy of Excellence, Newham Collegiate, Mulberry Girls' and Sir John Cass.
Mr Ali added: "I am so pleased with the performance of this year group. They were the pioneers of our school.
