    One of the oldest Charedi secondary schools in London has retained its rating as good after a recent visit from Ofsted.

    Pardes House Grammar School for boys in Finchley provided “stimulating experiences” and gave pupils “a good understanding of tolerance and equality, which lie at the heart of British values”.

    Most pupils achieved a good range of GCSEs including English and maths by the end of year 10 (a year early).

    Ofsted said a wide range of subjects was "almost all by subject specialists, including design technology, business studies, economics, biblical Hebrew, and food preparation and nutrition”.

    Calligraphy, PE, catering and citizenship also reflected pupils’ “growing enthusiasm for learning and their positive achievement”.

    In design technology, “modelling how to use the key tools safely and efficiently enabled pupils to make improvements to their bedside table and computer desk”.

    They also gained the skills to move on to further education or yeshivah at 16.

    But the ablest pupils sometimes needed more challenging work in secular subjects, Ofsted said.

    Governors were also reviewing how all pupils could receive more science tuition.
