In this section of the website you can read about some of the many varied and exciting events that take place at JFS. For a more comprehensive overview, photos and updates please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


A group of about 30 JFS Alumni, in their late 80s and 90s, attended the Bell Lane reunion at JFS. Together with younger family members, they enjoyed a wonderful afternoon cream tea complete with sandwiches and scones. JFS Alumnus, Dennis Hart, gave a taster talk on his exciting career as a photographer and JFS GCSE music students ably entertained the crowd with old and current songs, culminating in spontaneous dancing. The Alumni enjoyed the opportunity to reconnect and share their experiences of JFS with family and friends.


The annual Spring Concert took place last night to an excited and enthusiastic audience.

Music students presented a rich variety of work from our extra-curricular groups and a selection of solo and small ensemble items.  The programme was set for a wide appeal, incorporating well known pieces as well as some new repertoires.


Purim at JFS was celebrated in style. All students heard the Megillah before enjoying a fun filled show featuring a bubble-blowing entertainer and a hoop performer. This was followed by the much anticipated Purim Shpiel. Students enjoyed seeing their teachers on the big screen and at the end the students were on their feet for a standing ovation. The Purim charity fair was better than ever with a funfair that included bumper-cars, fairground rides and an ice-cream van. 


Congratulations to Year 9 student, David Stone, who competed and excelled against an excess of 6000 runners in a 10K race through the Old City of Yerushalayim. He came in 10th place overall and first place in both the Under 15 category as well as the Under 17 category. Well done David, we are proud of you!


We have great pleasure in inviting you to join us for a special reunion tea for JFS Alumni who attended the Jews’ Free School in Bell Lane.

We have recently been contacted independently by some of our Alumni who would like the opportunity to meet with old friends and share memories of their JFS days. We are hopeful that this will be a popular opportunity.
