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.


JFS celebrated Yom Ha'atzmaut in style. A stirring Shacharit service began the day and was followed by a sumptuous celebratory breakfast. In morning break students had a chance to sample 'Aroma' ice coffees and there was an evident air of festivity.


Students from Year 8 were recently selected to be a part of a Geography Enrichment Workshop, focusing on crime.  The main activity was a mystery case where the students became detectives and had to figure who the robber was out of two suspects.


Year 10 Geographers visited the Juniper Hall Field Studies Centre, near Dorking in Surrey recently where they studied the changes in the River Tillingbourne (a tributary of the Thames) from upstream to downstream.


In honour of our 280th Anniversary and to commemorate 10 years in Kenton, we held a Gala Concert at JFS. The Year 7 JFS Choir as well as the JFS Singers Choir were  joined  by six Jewish primary school choirs from Hertsmere Jewish Primary, Kerem, Mathilda Marks Kennedy, Moriah, Rosh Pinah and Wolfson Hillel who each performed a set of Jewish and non-Jewish songs. There was also a special JFS Alumni Choir, set up just to sing on this one occasion, who delighted the audience with their fine voices and a special rendition of the old JFS school song 'Horiyu'.

In assembly, two sixth form students came in to talk about the upcoming science week. After a fast paced introductory video and interesting talk, I walked out of the assembly more informed than when I came in. Also I was inspired as to how to do my article.
