As part of the upcoming Shabbat UK programme to be held on Parshat Noach (24-25 October), the Year 8 and 9 Text classes were challenged to make a practical Shabbat guide. Click here for the winning entries from each Year Group.  The students used the guides they had made to teach students in Year 7 about Shabbat. A group of students from JFS also visited Sinai to teach the students there about Shabbat.


Our annual Prospective Parents Evening (PPE) is the largest event in our school calendar. This year we welcomed over 1500 people and our students were there to greet them with warmth and assuredness that was extremely impressive. Our students always enjoy showing off their school and were happy to welcome the public together with their children. We have received numerous complimentary emails from the public, who had the opportunity to see our facilities and meet with our staff.


A recent JFS Alumna has won the Children's Aid Comittee (CAC) Young Volunteer of the Year award at the JVN Awards, held recently at JW3. Leora managed to fit volunteering for Norwood, at an elderly people’s home, amidst her Medicine application process, for which she was successful.


Year 12 students enjoyed a night of celebration, awarding their success in their GCSEs and recognising their achievements.
