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.


The News Academy is an initiative of News UK (who publishes the Times/Sunday Times and the Sun), built on a commitment to securing a sustainable future of high quality, professional journalism. They look for aspiring journalists, aged between 16-18 and showcase their articles on their website.

Two of our Student Journalists, Joshua Daniels and Benjamin Salmon recently had winning entries that can be seen on the News Academy website ,


JFS were honoured to join the veterans at Horse Guards Parade on Sunday for the AJEX Parade. Marching alongside those who served so valiantly was a great way of showing respect and honour and we were delighted at the large turn out of JFS students and staff.


JFS girls in Years 10-13 did exceptionally well at the recent Maccabiah Netball competition. Year 10 came first, Year 11 came second and Year 13 won with Year 12 coming second to them in the senior section.  



Ross in Year 11 is an endurance athlete whose environment is a little bit different from your average cross country runner. He has to navigate through a mix of natural and man-made obstacles that include trenches, tunnels, fallen trees, and pits of ice cold water. He also endures rope swings, enormous half-pipe climbs and a whole host of other energy sapping impediments.


On Thursday 5 November a Sky News crew came to JFS to film Year 12 student Emma Jacobs. Emma took part in a live debate about whether the voting age should be lowered. Hosted by Sky's Colin Brazier Emma chaired a debate between Emma and Ruby, a student from a school in Cambridge.
