YAVNEH YESHIVA HIGH SCHOOL
Extra-Curricular List, 2015/16
Yavneh is the Yeshiva High School for boys.
Yavneh Yeshiva High School adopts the approach of Torah im Derech Eretz as its guiding principle. It encourages a commitment to and an appreciation of Judaism and its values. The teaching of Torah, Talmud, Halacha, Tefillah and Ivrit, together with an emphasis on outstanding discipline, respect, Midot, Chessed and observance, is its principle aim. This, together with the centrality of the State of Israel and Zionism, mark the uniqueness of this unit.
"...The atmosphere in Yavneh is one of exceptional co-operation, purpose and joy..." (Ofsted)
The pursuit of excellence is a primary objective of this prestigious unit. The standards of the secular curriculum and the Jewish studies programmes are designed to enable pupils, on graduation, to enter the very best Yeshivot and universities.
A Yavneh graduate will be 'at home' in the world of Jewish learning and observance, and equally 'at home' in Cambridge, Oxford or any of the other centers of academic excellence.
A Yavneh graduate is 'at home' in two worlds. Admission to Yavneh is by an entrance assessment examination and by standards of religious observance and practice, as well as high standards of personal conduct.
