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.


Club 12/13 was launched recently to the delight of many Year 7 students. The club takes place Friday lunchtimes in the Conference Centre and is open to all in Year 7. Students enjoyed a sumptuous lunch before starting their creative and educational building or drawing task. To celebrate the opening of the Club this year, JiEP (Jewish Informal Education Programme) decided to have a Harry Potter-themed party.


Throughout the year, Year 13 will be making a stream of important life changing decisions – whether it is choosing which university to go to, what job they will apply for or what to do during their gap year.


Year 11 student Adam Lang received one of the top 12 scores in the country in Astronomy GCSE.


The third annual Sixth Form Lifeboat Debate took place recently, where students argued for which Arts and Humanities subject they would save if they could only save one. Nine teams competed, with a strong showing in the Finals from both Geography and History. They were nevertheless defeated in the final vote by Science students Benjamin, Oskar and Kadya as ‘The Devil’s Advocates’; a team that made a highly entertaining case to the audience that the Arts and Humanities were effectively worthless.


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.
