We also produce a regular Newsletter twice each month.


Former students, from the class of 2014, returned to school today to give presentations to our Year 12 cohort. The presentations were about the universities that they are attending and the courses that they are pursuing at undergraduate level.  Our Alumni were joined by Sixth Form students, as well as staff, in a relaxed atmosphere of friendly faces and refreshments.  This was followed by afternoon sessions involving workshops on their institution and course.


Science Week has been a fantastic success. We hosted a Mobile Zoo for Year 7, displaying a number of animals including a bearded dragon, a rabbit, an owl and a tenrec called Hufflepuff! The students had the opportunity to learn about conservation and the adaptations of these animals. They were even allowed to touch them. Years 8 and 9 developed their engineering skills by designing towers and bridges out of newspaper and 240cm of masking tape. We managed to achieve a new record in Year 9 with a bridge that could take a weight of over 8kg!


The Santiago String Quartet were back at JFS recently to record the Year 12 compositions. As part of their coursework, ‘AS’ Level students compose a string quartet piece which is then recorded by the Quartet. Students were given the freedom to compose in any style that they choose, so a range of genres were heard throughout the day, such as Jazz, Classical and Latin.


JFS hosted a Year 8 Brent girls football fixture as part of the Brent league. The girls played two matches, losing narrowly to St Gregory’s School and beating Kingsbury High School 5-0, with Jazi scoring a hat-trick!

The girls put in a fantastic effort and go in to the last fixture, after Pesach, in a great position to progress to the Semi-Finals.



JFS has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students’ high achievement at GCSE.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified JFS’s success.
