Football fever gripped JFS staff and students alike at our annual staff charity football match on the school AstroTurf pitch. Members of staff from all departments played a hard game and managed to raise over £700 for the mental health charity 'stem4'.

A number of our musically talented students spent Monday of this week visiting the elderly at Jewish Care and Birchwood Grange Care Homes.

The students performed a few songs as a choir (i.e.two hits from “The Greatest Showman” and Adon Olam), as well as a few solo items.  Both the residents and the staff enjoyed the entertainment.  


Six Year 12 students from our Prefect and Head Boy /Head Girl team were invited to St Johns Wood Synagogue for the Naz Legacy Foundation’s London Youth Interfaith Iftar. This is an annual event that brings together young people from across all of the London boroughs, from all faiths.


Last week Year 10 GCSE music students had the opportunity to see the musical “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” at the Apollo Theatre in the West End.

Musicals are a part of the GCSE syllabus which students learn about through the study of the set work “Defying Gravity” by Stephen Schwartz. Students thoroughly enjoyed the bright lights and spectacle of the West End whilst also further developing their understanding of this genre.



After three years of very close calls the Year 10 JFS football team won their first Brent Cup Final. They certainly did not make it easy on themselves after being 3-1 up when Alperton fought back to take the game to extra time.  Following an outstanding inspirational speech from our devoted Mr Bartram, we scored two in extra time winning the game 5-3. 

Our team have proved to have an outstanding work ethic and team work in training and all games in the past year and they deserve this accolade – Congratulations!
