National Award for Beis Yaakov High School Academy’s English Department
Our English department has recently received national recognition. It has been listed in the latest edition of ‘The Good Schools Guide’ that reviews over one thousand state aided and independent schools.
First published in 1986, entry in the Guide is based on the views of parents and others who know the school well.
Our school has been commended for ‘the excellent performance by girls taking GCSE English language and English literature at an English comprehensive school’, making us the highest performing English department in Salford.
Whilst other Salford schools have previously received similar commendations from the Good Schools Guide, this is the first time that an English department has received such a commendation. In addition, this award also reflects the high standards that our staff set for all our pupils and the dedication and professionalism of the teaching staff and the support staff within our English department.
2015 has been one of the most challenging years in our school’s history. While it is always very pleasing to have our pupils’ successes publicly acknowledged, the timing of this award makes it even more special.
