CANONS High School students achieved impressive results in this year's A-levels.
Many of the pupils who applied for university were awarded their places after months of hard work and a long wait for the results.
The music department launched a new course, BTEC Music Production, and four out of the five students achieved distinctions and are going on to higher education.
Mr Patterson, head of music, said he was extremely proud of the pupils who had worked "with passion and such dedication."
One of his pupils, Zarah Mattin, 18, studied Media (B), Drama (C) and a BTEC in Music Production (distinction, the equivalent of an A at A-level) and said: "I was really happy. I got the confirmed place for East London univerisity. Most people at Canons did really well and we were all happy together. A lot of us had more UCAS points than we thought. Everyone is looking forward to uni, we have all been at school for a long time. I am really excited to be on the dance course, and I can't wait to learn at a higher level."
Other results from the school will be available later.
