Students at JFS have once again obtained outstanding GCSE results exceeding last year’s achievements. The most notable feature is that, while national results have fallen, almost 50% of entries secured an A* or A grade - up from 47.3% last year. The overall pass rate was 99.9%.
Among many exceptional individual achievements are those of Joseph Moss (12A*s), Abigail Woodrow (11A*s and 2As), Rachel Rabin (11A*s, 1A), Zachary Bevan (11A*s), Eytan Merkier (11A*s and 1A), Charlotte Getz-Brezinski (11A*s), Zohar Mendzelevski-Steinberg (10A*s and 1A), Daniel Marchant (10A*s), Kalvin Ovsiowitz (10A*s), Beth Tobiansky (10A*s) and Jacob Virchis (9A*s, 3As).
Exceptionally, 69 students (almost a quarter of our intake) achieved an A* or A in at least nine of their GCSE examinations. This is another JFS record building on those set last week with the A Level results. A number of students continue to study Astronomy and Classical Civilisation outside of the formal curriculum – the results they achieve for these disciplines are outstanding.
Headteacher, Jonathan Miller said, “Our students, once again, have set the highest of benchmarks with these excellent results which are testament to their hard work and that of their teachers. We are delighted that so many of our students supported by their families have achieved and surpassed their potential, enabling them to proceed to the next stage of their education with confidence.”
