The PE department has been fortunate to acquire funding for a climbing wall in the small sports hall. The wall was completed last week and staff training has already begun.



The National Theatre is widely known as one of the most prominent and highly acclaimed theatres in the United Kingdom and was a treat to visit for this year’s Media Studies students.


Year 10 GCSE art students were recently able to go on an enriching day trip to the Tate Modern Art Gallery in Central London. The visit gave students a chance to see different art techniques close up as well as paintings and sculptures by artists they will study in the future. The students were able to explore the gallery, and were encouraged to draw sketches and make notes on what they saw.


It is not often that a school trip offers the opportunity for profound reflection, but this is something that JFS continuously endeavours to achieve.


Our Year 8 Geography group visited the Epping Forest Field Studies Centre to find out more about the ecosystems topic that we are studying in our Geography lessons at present. We were introduced to the history of the forest by specialist teachers at the Centre and learned that the forest is thousands of years old, as well as being the largest area of open space in London.
