This week students, parents and staff enjoyed the annual Winter Concert.

Over 80 students performed to a packed audience in the Theatre and were involved either as soloists or in various ensembles. A wide variety of musical styles were performed ranging from Musical Theatre to Classical and Heavy Metal. All year groups were represented as well as this being a first JFS concert experience for many students.  



For the first time in our GCSE course, Year 10 Drama students were able to see a live performance of a West End production. We were presented with a tantalising opportunity to see ‘The 39 Steps’ in the Criterion Theatre, in central London.


It only feels like yesterday when I wrote down in my Jewish Studies book that I ‘really wanted to go to Buckingham Palace’.  As I write this article, it was only yesterday when I actually went to Buckingham Palace itself!


It may not be ancient Greece or Oxford University but Socratic discussions have been thriving at JFS.

Run by History teacher, Mr Suter, the club called the ‘Socratic Society’ incorporates the principles of the Socratic Method which involves students discussing and asking questions in order to stimulate ‘out of the box’ thinking and come up with ideas. The types of questions that are brought to the table are not necessarily intended to have an answer but help to understand the topics and give students’ points of view.
