A school in Camberwell is celebrating results day as ten students achieved five Grade 9s or more each.

They were closely followed by Adonay Temnewo with eight Grade 9s and three Grade 8s and Ehinomen Olumese with seven Grade 9s and four Grade 8s.
Other students with impressive grades included Daniela Athieno Jawiloka, Mirana Claye, Joshua Onobrakpeya, Samuel Raji, Regan Darko and Anh-Quoc Ha.
Headteacher Serge Cefai said: “Sacred Heart school is well used to achieving some of the best GCSE results in the country and although the circumstances surrounding this year’s grades have been extremely challenging for pupils and staff I am delighted that our pupils have once again worked hard and excelled.
“I am very proud of how hard my staff worked to administer the exams, and especially proud of how determined, ambitious and focused our pupils have been against the context of the pandemic.
“Our pupils have not only excelled in these exams, but by sitting rigorous assessments we have ensured that they are well prepared for the next stage in their educational journeys.”
Almost 90 per cent of students achieved at least 5 standard passes including English and Maths and 72 per cent of pupils achieved a Grade 5 and above in English and Maths.
