KING David High School students have seen their hard work pay off as it was ranked No 4 comprehensive state school in the country in The Sunday Times’ top 200 state secondary schools.
KD High school governors’ chairman Joshua Rowe said: “I could not be more happy because of the hard work the students have put into their studies, including both GCSE and A-level.
The list of top 200 state secondary schools ranked the King David High School as No 86 out of semi-selective schools.
Mr Rowe explained: “The school is not semi-selective — it is a comprehensive school. So if you take out all of the selective schools, we rank No 4.
“We have always been at the top of the list for education, and this goes for both GCSEs and A-levels.
“In GCSE results we are the No 1 comprehensive school in the country.
“The school has had an excellent year, the students have been great and the combination of the kids with the teachers is great.
“The parents have given a lot of support and we make sure to have a warm and friendly atmosphere in the school.”
Within the first six schools on the list, four Jewish schools are listed.
They are KD High, Jewish Free School, Harrow, Hasmonean High School, London, and Yavneh College, Borehamwood.
