Immanuel College in Bushey has emerged as the best-performing Jewish school at A-level in new performance tables published by the Department for Education today.
The fee-paying school was the only Jewish school to average an “A” grade in subjects taken by pupils last year, according to new measures introduced by the government.
Manchester Mesivta, a Charedi state-aided secondary school, remains top of the GCSE list for Jewish schools according to the progress made by pupils from entry to the school.
The latest GCSE tables have been slightly revised from provisional results released in October. Immanuel is not included because IGCSEs taken in some subjects by its pupils are not counted by the DFE.
The new tables continue to show the strong academic performance overall for Jewish schools.
The national average for English schools is C+ and 31.8 points at A-level, and 56.6 points for “attainment 8” at GCSE.
|A-level||Average A-level points||Average Grade|
|King David Manchester||39.8||B|
|Kantor King Solomon||29.3||C|
|King David Liverpool||28||C-|
|GCSE||Progress 8||Attainment 8||English/Maths||EBacc|
What GCSE scores mean:
Progress 8: measures how much progress children have made since entry into school. A score of 0.50 means they are achieving on average half a grade higher at GCSE than might have been predicted from their ability when they came to the school
Attainment 8: measure of GCSE results. A score of 50 means they scored on average a grade C; 60 a B (not all subjects count towards this measure).
English/Maths – percentage of children gaining GCSE in English and Maths at grade C or above
EBacc – percentage gaining English Baccalaureate – English, maths, two science, history or geography and one language
