A senior staff member at South Hampstead High School praised the "grit" of students after 64 percent of exams were given a grade of A*.
The school saw nine out of ten of its grades come back as A* or A, smashing the national average and making it a great day for the school.
“The grit our students apply to their work, the exceptional dedication of our teachers and the infallible support of our parent community are to be commended today, as we celebrate outstanding GCSE results,” said deputy head Sandrine Paillaise.
“I am honoured and delighted to share this momentous occasion with them.”
Thirteen girls at the school, making up 15pc of GCSE students, managed to score ten A*’s or more, with 65pc achieving ten A* or A grades.
