Exceptional A Level and Vocational Results

We are delighted to announce another exceptional set of public exam results for our Year 13 students.  Awarded on the basis of formal exams for the first time since 2019, they are our best ever figures, by some distance on several measures.  They are all the more remarkable for a cohort that had never sat public exams before and whose 6th form studies were so affected by the pandemic.

Across all our A level and Cambridge Technical Qualifications, 60% of grades were at A*/A (or equivalent) and 82% were at Grade B or better (or equivalent).

  • At A level, 52% of grades were A*/A (22% were A*) and 78% were B or better.
  • In Cambridge Technicals, 82% of grades were Distinction* and 94% Distinction or better.
  • 61% of students scored at least 3 A grades (or equivalent).
  • 103 students took A levels only, 35 took Technicals only and 18 took a blend of both.

Among many outstanding individual performances are:

  • A*A*A*A*: Joel Klein
  • A*A*A*A: Dinah Lewis, Eitan Richards
  • A*A*A*: Ava Gubbay, Ruben Persey, Sam Redland, Adam Tyler, Erin Walfisz; Sammy Bentwood (D*D*A*)
  • A*A*A: Jemima Briggs, Noah Broad, Louie Glasner, Matan Golani, Jack Hearder, Nadav Jacobs, Yonathan Kannor, Jacob Lederman, Albany Maddison, Ariella Niman, Oz Perez, Jessica Sassienie-Honeyball, Joe Shefras, Hannah Smith, Natasha Werblow; Ella Wise, Noah Graft (D*D*A)
  • 3x Distinction*: Scarlet Alkalai, Oliver Brent, Ben Conway, Samuel Davidson-Poston, Oliver Englander, Sam Ezekiel, Michael Falk, Serena Kara, Katie Mellis, Zack Morris, Tanya Nahum, Ella Nash, Joel Neumann, Jack Rodesano, Paige Roth, Yitz Sheinfeld, Jaimee Wolman

 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.

The great majority of the year group have places confirmed at their chosen universities (far more than usual at this point despite concerns raised in the media), and we expect this figure to rise further in the coming days.  They are 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 pursuing other routes.

Headteacher Patrick Moriarty commented:

‘This cohort faced exceptional challenges over the last 2½ years: their GCSE courses ended abruptly without the chance to prove themselves in the exam hall. They took these exams without the benefit of that experience, on top of significant disruption to their time in the 6th form.  We are delighted that these excellent results recognise the huge strengths we have seen in them over 7 years and their dedicated, resilient hard work.  I salute their unstinting labours, and those of their teachers, and pay tribute also to parents who have shouldered additional burdens over these past 2 years. 

‘We take pride in our students’ academic accomplishments and, just as much, in the qualities we have seen grow 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 lives.’
