Irvit (Modern Hebrew) AQA A Level at Kantor King Solomon High School

Course description

The Modern Hebrew specification brings the language to life as students apply their learning to real-life scenarios. There's also an opportunity to study the culture and history of the countries and communities concerned.

From GCSE to A-level, our Modern Hebrew language specifications offer a clear route of progression, building on grammar and topic content at each stage. Seamless progression within our qualifications can help encourage students to stay with their studies.

We are lucky to have a brand new sixth form centre where there is both a canteen area with a coffee shop and also a quiet, supervised study area.

      The Sixth Form is integrated into the life of the whole school community and Sixth Formers are expected to act as role models towards younger students. Our aim is to produce well-balanced, responsible young adults fully prepared to take their place in Higher Education, the professions and the Jewish Community.
