Excellent GCSE Results 2018

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 designed to increase academic expectations, we are particularly proud to have sustained our track record of high achievement.

Overall, 40% of grades achieved were at Grades 9-7 (or the equivalent A or A* which still operate in a few subjects). and 82% were at Grades 9-4 (or the equivalent A*- C). Amongst the new qualifications, over a quarter were at Grade 8 or 9 (the old A*), and 12.5% of grades were Grade 9 which is reserved for the top 2% of students. In French this figure was over 20% of grades, and in History and Chemistry over 23%. 

A quarter of students achieved at least 8 GCSEs at Grade 7 (A) or better, and nearly two-fifths achieved at least 5 at Grade 7 (A) or better.

Among many outstanding individual performances are those of:

James Saker:                9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 A**

(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. Some of these are in the list above, and we salute also the huge achievements of Amy Woloski, Noa Taylor, Louis Rogove, Miri Goodlink, Noa Ben-Menahem, Edouard Hirsch, Lia Avigdor and Joseph Lever among many others.

Headteacher, Mr Moriarty commented: ‘We are delighted by another set of fabulous GCSE results – now the 4th in our collection and sustaining consistent high standards despite the challenges of new specifications and grade systems.  They are testament to the exceptional hard work and dedication of our staff and students alike.’ 

 

A Level and Vocational Results

We are delighted to announce our 2nd full set of A Level Results from our cohort who joined JCoSS in its second year.  Overall, 38% of grades were either A* or A, and 67% were at Grade B or above – our best ever results by some margin.

Among many outstanding individual performances are those of:

Aviv Silver A*A*A*A*
Adam Gould A*A*A*A*
Jack Margolis A*A*A*A*
Josh Cowan A*A*A*A
Noa Marson A*A*A A
Zach Levenson A*A*A A
Max Simmonds A*A*A*
Lucas Samuel A*A*A*
Talia Friend A*A*A
Joe Rogove A*A*A
Aliyah Kossoff A*A*B
 

We are enormously proud that 7 students who were holding offers for Oxbridge and/or Medical School have also received the necessary grades to take up their places – this again comfortably surpasses previous years and continues the upward trend since the school’s earliest results.

The great majority of the year group are placed in their chosen universities and are now set to embark on courses including Medicine, Veterinary Science, Arts, Business and Science at prestigious institutions. Others are heading into employment or other routes.

24 students scored all A/A* grades and/or Distinction/Distinction* across all their subjects and 6 students scored A* in 3 or more subjects.  Special mention must also go to those across the cohort and on both vocational and A level pathways who achieved grades far beyond their targets: Holly Krais and Lucas Samuel exceeded them by a total of 6 grades, Alex Rose, Jenifer Harding, Ben Good and Daniel Birke by 5 grades, and Martha Slater, Georgina Lewis, Rebecca Wilcockson, Talia Friend, Tom Slagter and Sam Bromley by 4 grades.

Headteacher Patrick Moriarty commented:

‘We are delighted by another set of excellent results – the 2nd whole cohort in our collection.  Both academic and vocational outcomes are testament to the exceptional hard work and dedication of staff and students alike, who were tackling new and demanding specifications in many subjects. 

‘We are proud not only of the academic accomplishments of our students but of 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.’
