Excellent A Level Results for Pioneering Cohort

We are delighted to announce our first full set of A Level Results from our pioneering student cohort who joined JCoSS in 2010 when the school first opened.

Overall, over a third of grades were either A* or A, and over two-thirds of grades were at Grade B or above.  88% of all grades were A*-C. We are thrilled that both students who received Oxbridge offers have also received the necessary grades to take up their places at Cambridge.

Among many outstanding individual performances are those of:

Nathan Caplan A*A*A*A
Jess Shaw A*A*A*
Nikita Ostrovsky A*A*A*A A
Kezia Niman A*A*A*
Jonah Zur A*A*A*
Joel Avigdor A*A*A
Noga Oren A*A*A A
Ruby Rose A*A*A
Daniel Subel A*A*B
Jena Allen A*A*B
Jamy Bristol James A*A A B
Ella Levene A*A A
Zack Solomon A*A A
In addition, the following all scored at least AAA: Joss Bogod, Jack Brown, Romi Goodman, Sophie Irwin, Jemma Oberman, Josh Saffer, Molly Schiller, and Ben Wander.
Lucinda Bathie, Harley Benson and Rebecca Jackson all scored A*AB
Many of these students also achieved excellent grades in the EPQ qualification on top of their A level grades.

We are equally proud of stunning achievements in our pioneering vocational courses.  86% of all qualifications were at Distinction level or higher, and 40% were starred Distinctions, the top grade awarded.  Of particular note are:

Jamie Conway, Omer Golani, Daniel Gould and Morgan Jays all scored 2 starred Distinctions , and Morgan scored a further Distinction on top.
Luke Bodnar, Alice Salem and Gabby Levene both scored one starred distinction and 2 Distinctions.
We are enormously proud that both students (Jessica Shaw and Nathan Caplan) who had received Oxbridge offers, have secured their places for Cambridge and will be studying Theology and Natural Sciences respectively.

The majority of the year group have received the grades for their first choice university and are now set to embark on the next stage of their journey with courses including Medicine, Veterinary School and Dentistry at prestigious Russell Group universities.

Patrick Moriarty commented ‘This is the biggest milestone of the school’s history to date and we are thrilled with our first full set of A Level results.  This is a true testament to the hard work and dedication from our staff and students over the past 7 years. 

This is a historic and highly momentous day for JCoSS.  It signifies the faith that every supporter, student and family put into JCoSS to give the children in our community an excellent education in a pluralist environment.  Today’s results justify all that trust and faith and we thank you again for giving JCoSS the opportunity to become a reality. 

This special cohort of students deserves the superb results that have been achieved.  Not only have they gained high academic success, but they have grown into fine young people and become wonderful ambassadors for the school and the community.  They have become the fully-rounded  Mensches that JCoSS seeks to create and their legacy will resonate throughout everything that we do.   The history book has now been firmly written and I am as proud as can be that our first entry has been a resounding success”.

Excellent GCSE Results for JCoSS

We are excited to announce another year of excellent GCSE results from our students, who have achieved highly both in the grades they have achieved and in the progress they have made.  In a year with new courses and grade structures to increase academic expectations, we are particularly proud to have sustained and even exceeded our previous outcomes.

Overall, 43% of grades achieved were at Grade A or A* (or the equivalent 7-9), and 88% were at Grades A*- C (or the equivalent 9-4). The familiar benchmark figure of the number of students achieving 5 or more GCSEs at Grades A*- C (9-4) including English and Maths was 85.5%, our highest score ever.

Including GCSE exams taken early last year, well over a quarter of students achieved at least 8 GCSEs at Grade A (7) or better, and nearly two-fifths achieved at least 5 at Grade A (7) or better. 

A third of students achieved both Maths and English grades at Grade 7 or above, and in English more than one in ten scored a Grade 9, reserved for the top 2% of students nationally.  Nearly seven in ten achieved a strong pass (Grade 5 or above) in both subjects and nine in ten achieved at least a standard pass (Grade 4) in both subjects.

We rejoice at these excellent raw grades, and also at the huge achievements of many students who have far exceeded personal goals and school targets. Our Progress 8 “value added” score was our highest ever and shows that teaching at JCoSS added an average of 6 grades to every student, compared to national expectations.  In English, JCoSS added a whole extra grade on average to every student.
