Yavneh College is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence, intellectual curiosity and independent thinking for all pupils. We recognise that our Able, Gifted and Talented pupils need access to diverse and challenging curriculum opportunities to enable them to reach their true potential. In so doing, this creates benefits for those pupils, their fellow learners, the school and the wider community.

This aim is best accomplished through active learning strategies delivered by high quality and effective teachers – both within the formal curriculum as well as through the school’s comprehensive programme of extended learning opportunities.

In March 2011, Yavneh College was awarded the NACE Challenge Award. Only 63 secondary schools nationally have received this accolade. The award followed a rigorous assessment and inspection process including data analysis, lesson observations, scrutiny of provision and interviews.

NACE reported:

“There is a whole school commitment to and passion for challenging all learners”

“There is a culture of celebration in the school…it was clear that the students love school.”

“Parents were fulsome in their belief of the school’s ability to stretch and challenge their sons and daughters.”
