Outstanding GCSE Results

We are delighted to announce stunning GCSE results, breaking previous records by a considerable margin. 

Half of all results are at Grade 7 (A) or better, and 18% of grades were Grade 9 which is reserved for the top 3% of students nationally.  32% of results were Graded 8 or 9 (or the equivalent A*). Seven students scored at least 9 Grade 9s, of whom three scored 10.  A third of students achieved at least 8 GCSEs at Grade 7 (A) or better.

This year virtually all subjects have now moved to new courses and grade structures, which are designed to increase academic expectations.  We are therefore particularly pleased that our percentage of results at Grade 5 and above (considered a ‘strong pass’) has increased to 83.2%, a significant increase on last year.  93% of results were at Grades 9-4 (the equivalent of an A*-C pass on the old system).

Students have risen undaunted to the new challenges, and our ‘value-added’ score, measuring progress during their time at JCoSS, is also our strongest ever. Over 30% of grades in Jewish Education, Biology, Physics, Chemistry and History were at Grade 9.

(NB: Grade A** in the list above is an exceptional A* grade in Further Maths GCSE)

We rejoice at these excellent raw grades, and also at the many students who have far exceeded personal goals and school targets.  We salute also the huge achievements of Guy A Sherman, Ari Weiler-Ofek, Victoria Godfrey, Abigail Tucker, Misha Vides, and Daniel Stavrou, and there are many more who could have been on either of these lists.

Headteacher, Mr Moriarty commented: ‘We are delighted by the outstanding GCSE results that our students have achieved, which surpass our already strong track record.  Their hard work and resilience, married to the expertise and care of their teachers, have enabled them to meet the increased challenges of new specifications with flair.  I am exceptionally proud of students and colleagues alike.’

Record Breaking JCoSS A Level Results

We are delighted to announce another record-breaking set of A level results, once again our best ever results by a considerable distance.  8 students have secured their places at Oxbridge, and another has secured her place at medical school.  Overall, 44% of grades were either A* or A, and 76% were at Grade B or above.

Among many outstanding individual A level performances are those of:

In vocational subjects, 70% of all grades were at Distinction (equivalent to an A grade) or better, with grades at Merit or better.   Outstanding performances included:

Yllka Humolli  Dist* Dist Dist

Hannah Chesler  Dist* Dist Dist

There are many other students whose grades are stunning either as raw results or in terms of their personal achievement against challenging odds, or both.

With more Oxbridge offers still outstanding, the great majority of the year group have places confirmed at their chosen universities and are now set to embark on courses including Medicine, Maths, Engineering, Economics, the Arts, Business and Science at many prestigious institutions. Others are heading into employment or other routes.

6 students scored A* in at least 3 subjects, and over a quarter of the A level cohort scored at least 2 A grades.  Special mention must also go to those who achieved grades far beyond their targets: Caitlin Grills exceeded them by a total of 9 grades, Maddi Buchi and Cydney Harding by 7 grades each, Asher Kelvin by 5 grades, Alice Bordell, Sam Kelly, Tom Luxon and Ellie Stone by 4 grades.  Yllka Humolli, William Glazer, Tahlia Lorenz, Benji Radnor Teo Ungar scored well beyond targets on vocational courses.

Headteacher Patrick Moriarty commented:

‘We are delighted by another set of excellent results, and by further increases on all previous years.  Both academic and vocational outcomes are testament to the exceptional hard work and dedication of staff and students.  We are proud to combine being an inclusive school with having 8 students taking up places at Oxbridge.

‘We take pride not only in the academic accomplishments of our students but in the qualities that have grown in them during their time at JCoSS.  They leave as accomplished Mensches, embodying the values of the school and the wider community, and ready to act as ambassadors for both as they step forward on the next phase of their journey.’
