The Year 10 Charity Committee organised a quiz between two teams of teachers in aid of Emunah with questions on sport, TV and entertainment, books and the Internet.  The aptly named “Team Victory” took the lead early on and held on comfortably until the end.


Over 25 students from the JFS Sixth Form attended a series of lectures hosted by the Zionist Federation at the Institute of Education. The lectures covered ground-breaking new innovations in Israeli medical technology, presented by some of the finest minds in the fields of biology and science.


The school recently officially opened its new purpose-built Drama studio. The facility has proven to be a wonderful addition to the Drama department and has afforded the students the opportunity to both further enhance and enjoy their Drama studies.




On Monday 4 February the Year 11 triple science students visited Whipsnade Zoo. They had a fascinating lecture on animal communication and were able to observe specific examples of animal behaviour ranging from Chimps, to Meerkats, Elephants and Lions. A great day was had by all!


A group of Year 12 and 13 A-level French students attended the Mediatheque at the BFI Southbank on Tuesday 29th January, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the different aspects of French cinema. As a part of their A-level syllabus, students are studying ‘Literature and the arts’, which involves being able to discuss French film and the topics that are presented within French film.
