    Four Jewish schools are listed among the top 100 state schools in England in a table published by the Sunday Times.

    Yavneh College in Hertfordshire was the highest ranked of the Jewish schools at joint 65, closely followed by JFS in London at joint 67.

    The rankings, based on GCSE and A-level results in the summer, also include King David High School Manchester at joint 80 and Hasmonean High School in London at joint 87.

    JCoSS appears at joint 151, while King David High School Liverpool is at 346 and Kantor Solomon High School in Essex 464 out of the top 500 state schools.

    Among London state schools, JFS was  number 15, Hasmonean 16 and JCoSS 32. Yavneh was at 17 in the south-east, and King David Manchester 7 in the north-west.

    In the top 400 independent schools in England, Immanuel College was placed at 132.

    Rabbi David Meyer, executive director of Partnerships for Jewish Schools, said it was “exceptionally impressive that four of the top 100 state schools in the Sunday Times list are Jewish schools”.

    Yavneh, JFS, Hasmonean, King David Manchester, JCoSS and King David Liverpool all improved their rankings from the paper’s table last year.
