Yavneh College celebrates 'outstanding' results

Borehamwood Times: Students celebrate their results Students celebrate their results

Yavneh College is celebrating “outstanding” results after students picked up their GCSE results this morning.

For many 16-year-olds, the grades determine which three or four subjects they can carry on studying to AS-level and eventually, A-level.


Helena Raymond-Hayling, 16, achieved an exceptional result after achieving A stars in her 12 chosen subjects.


Fifty per cent of all grades students achieved with A star or A, with 94 per cent of students receiving at least five grades at A star to C.


Head teacher Dr Dena Coleman, said: “This record breaking set of results has been achieved by excellent teaching at the school, coupled by the hard work by the pupils.


“I am delighted that these results mean that we are ranked as one of the top-performing schools in the whole country.”

Hardly suprising they got good results, they have a state of the art school to learn in.

Shame that only Jewish people are entitled to a decent education in Borehamwood it seems.

Hertswood have state of art facilities too - results aren't based on facilities. They are based on youngster's determination to succeed.

I agree with you about the lack of choice in secondary education in Borehamwood, but the Jewish community are to be praised for doing something about this - not criticised.

According to Haberdashers web site, 91% of their grades were A or A*.

It is a private school but if you are clever enough to pass their entrance exams but genuinely cannot afford the fees, they will pay them for you. There are other similar performing North London schools with the same offer.
