Our annual Year 7 ‘Sing-Off’ took place beginning with the whole of Year 7 singing ‘Donna, Donna’. It was wonderful to hear 300 voices all singing together in unison.

The afternoon proceeded with each ITAM Music group performing a class song, including solos, harmony and choreography.

There was a great atmosphere in the Theatre as students encouraged and applauded each other, recognising the hard work that went into each performance.


Award winners at our recent Sports Awards Evening were treated to a visit to the famous Velodrome in London, which was generously sponsored by Maccabi GB. This sponsorship has now ended and we are seeking a new partner to continue offering our most talented and hardworking sporting students the opportunity to take part at world class venues, in recognition of all of their achievements. If you are in a position to help with sponsorship, please contact our PE Department.


In their final league game of the season, the Year 8 boys tennis team beat Belmont Preparotary School with a comfortable 8 - 4 victory. Ryan Winthrop and Oscar Jacobson continued their fine form in the competition, while Joseph Henley impressed with a comfortable Singles win. Zachary Serfaty made a solid start on his debut, playing a year above his age group. They will continue in September with the knockout stages. Well done to all who played this season.



Five Year 8 JFS boys, together with another friend, took on the challenge of climbing Mount Snowden for the charity umbrella group MyIsrael.


Standing at a colossal 4,408 feet, Ben Nevis is Britain’s highest mountain. It is located in the Grampian range of Lochaber, Scotland and is known locally as 'Ben'.

With ice, rock and treacherous scrambles that would test even the most accomplished of climbers, two brave JFS students tackled the tough conditions and tested their endurance to its limits. Joseph Furman and Ben Summerfield, both in Year 8, decided to take on 'Ben' and have so far raised in excess of £5000 for charity and expect that to exceed £6000 now that they have conquered the summit.
