Applications for Entry - September 2016
Manchester Mesivta is a Voluntary Aided school situated in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, serving the needs of the Orthodox Jewish residents of the Greater Manchester area.
The school delivers an extensive Yeshiva-orientated Torah syllabus combined with the National Curriculum leading to GCSE and ‘A/S’ levels. It caters for boys from the age of 10-16. The independent Manchester Jewish Grammar School continues to offer sixth form studies to Advanced Level on the same site.
The school is suitable for boys who wish to proceed eventually to a Yeshiva and who are thus motivated to achieve a high degree of proficiency in Torah studies as well as an advanced secular standard. The qualities which are essential for pupils to succeed are: good behaviour in conjunction with a sound primary Jewish education, strong motivation and an ability and willingness to cope with the dual curriculum.
In order to succeed a pupil should ideally have received a sound primary Jewish education. He should be fluent in both square and ‘Rashi’ Hebrew texts; he should have a good knowledge of Chumash, Rashi and Gemorah and possess a solid background of Dinim and general knowledge.
To help in determining the settings of pupils, the following papers are set: Chumash Rashi, Mathematics and English.
Any Jewish boy born between 1st September 2004 and 31st August 2005 are eligible to take these papers provided a form is completed and returned to the school by Friday 30th November 2015.
Applicants will receive information on the dates of the Open evening.
N.B. If you have not returned your local authority application form, please do so immediately, marking the Manchester Mesivta as your school of preference.
