JFS are celebrating a three per cent surge in top GCSE results -achieving an overall pass rate of 99.9 per cent.
Almost 50 per cent of pupils at the school, in The Mall, Kenton, who took academic qualification secured an A* or A grade, three per cent up from last year’s figure.
Overall, 82 per cent of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and Maths.
Jonathan Mille, headteacher, said, “Our students, once again, have set the highest of benchmarks with these excellent results which are testament to their hard work and that of their teachers.”
One mother, Claudia Moss, jumped for joy after finding out her son, Joseph, 16, gained 12 A* grades in maths, english literature and language, chemistry, biology, physics, history, Spanish, French, astronomy, Jewish studies, and classic civilisation.
