Yavneh College in Borehamwood celebrates 'outstanding' results
A Jewish school is celebrating another very successful year.
Yavneh College in Hillside Avenue reported “exceptional” GCSE results with 85 per cent achieving five A* to C grades.
An impressive 70 per cent of students attained A* to C grades in maths and English and 41 per cent of grades were A* or A.
The new head teacher Spencer Lewis said he was very impressed with the Year 11 students and their “outstanding performances,” 11 per cent of whom achieved ten A* or A grades.
He added: “I am very excited about taking on the position of headteacher at Yavneh College, which is an outstanding school in every way.
“I am delighted that there were so many excellent GCSE grades.
“The Year 11 students have worked very hard and have outperformed their own targets by some way.
“They, their parents and teachers can be very proud.”
Beth Kraines, who lives in Edgware, was overjoyed at her nine A* grades and one A.
She said: “I’m really happy, I was not expecting these results at all. I had to triple check them before I could believe my eyes.
“I worked so hard and it was amazing to get these results.
“I’m going to do biology, chemistry, geography and English for A level and I want to do veterinary science later.”
“The school’s been amazing. I wouldn’t have done as well without its support.”
Jack Schapira, who lives in Red Road, achieved five A* grades, three As and two Bs.
He said: “I was so nervous last night, I couldn’t get to sleep. A lot rested on my GCSE results and I’m so glad I did as well as this.
“I achieved A* grades in all the sciences, maths and further maths. I’ve set myself a high standard for A level.”
Oliver Rebauk, who lives in Mill Hill, said he was “very pleased” with his five A* grades, two As and three Bs.
He added: “I was pretty relaxed about them. I knew I wouldn’t do too terribly.
“I worked hard for this, though I probably could have worked harder.”
