The course will particularly suit those pupils who are considering going into the design, arts or manufacturing industry, or might be considering a career in architecture or engineering.

During their time undertaking the Food and Nutrition GCSE, pupils build on the knowledge gained at Key Stage 3, such as the issues surrounding diet and nutrition and food safety and hygiene. During the two-year course, pupils look at all aspects of the design and manufacturing process by creating their own food products from concept to completion.

Pupils also use computer software to complete a nutritional analysis of their products. Imaginative writing is also taught, as well as writing for purpose, and oral skills. The Language course consists of two exam papers, based on reading and writing fiction and non-fiction texts. A spoken language component is also included, whereby pupils have to give a speech to the teacher under exam conditions.

Come along and learn about the meaning of Bat Mitzvah and share your own celebrations in a fun environment. Jewish Ethos Our Jewish ethos is at the core of all that we do, thus our pupils are expected to exemplify the values that they are taught; they are expected to treat others with respect, to contribute to the school community in a positive manner and to play an active part in our tzedakah charity and chesed kindness campaigns.

We believe that it is important that our pupils recognise their responsibility towards the various communities to which they belong. Our tzedakah activities therefore focus each year on three charities selected by the pupils, one being a British Jewish charity, one a British non-Jewish charity and one an Israeli charity.

We believe that the Hebrew language is more than just a tool to access classical Jewish texts; it is central to Jewish identity in the modern world and forms a link between our pupils and people of the State of Israel. All pupils are taught Ivrit as a modern foreign language at Yavneh College.

In Year 9, pupils have the opportunity to go on a residential Israel trip at the end of the summer term, visiting the scenes of Biblical, historical and cultural interest that they have learnt about at school and gaining a first-hand insight into contemporary Israeli society.

In Year 12, students have the opportunity to visit Poland. In preparation for their visit, they learn about the years of vibrant history experienced by the Jews of Poland and thereby gain a deeper understanding of what was lost as a consequence of the Holocaust. We aim for our pupils to leave as fluent Hebrew readers who know their way around the siddur and are able to participate when attending services and Jewish events throughout their lives.

A voluntary shacharit service, followed by breakfast, is held before school. Parents are most welcome to attend. The school has its own synagogue, which further enhances the beauty of our services. Yavneh College is a school where Jewish values pervade the life of the school, not simply the Jewish Studies lessons. Yavneh College is a modern orthodox school which welcomes pupils from across the spectrum of Jewish practice. We aim to equip our young people with the skills, knowledge and understanding of their religious and cultural heritage to enable them to participate with confidence and enjoyment as members of the Jewish community.

Yavneh College celebrates the existence of the State of Israel as being central to Jewish life. We strive to imbue pupils with a love of God, Torah and Israel and to teach them to respect human diversity and diverse viewpoints. We aim to be a centre of excellence in Jewish and secular studies, where children learn within a stimulating and nurturing environment.

Our goal is to produce young people for whom learning Torah and gaining an insight into wider culture is central to their identity. We believe that the study of traditional texts, Hebrew language and Jewish history nurtures a school community characterised by a shared tradition and a passion for learning. The focus in year 11 will be more on exam style questions and application. Year 11 pupils will have two mock tests to help prepare them the first in Late November and the second one in Early March.
