Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again.  Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition.  The staff and leadership team includes different faiths and none at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity.

Our Results: We have a track record of outstanding academic results and our 2019 outcomes make us the 3rd highest-performing non-selective maintained school at both GCSE and A level according to The Times.  44% of A level grades were at A*or A, with over a quarter of the cohort scoring at least two A grades. Level 3 vocational outcomes were equally strong, with 70% of grades at Distinction or better.  At GCSE, half of grades were at grade 7 or higher, and a third of the cohort achieved at least 8 GCSEs at grade 7 or better.  Our ALPS grade is 2 at both A level and GCSE, and our ‘Progress 8’ score is 0.68. 9 students gained places at Oxbridge this year, and on top of this (as is typical) students secured places for Medicine, Art, Architecture & Media at prestigious institutions.
