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 hosted a group of Chinese teachers from Hubei province in Central China. The visit was set up by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust as part of a three week visit by the group to London. They visited JFS to see an outstanding school in action. They observed lessons, met with students and staff including a Q and A with history students learning about China and a session working with JFS Geography staff to inform the teaching of China in the Geography curriculum. They left impressed with the School, but more specifically impressed with the students they encountered.


Year 9 students completed a thrilling tour of Wembley Stadium as part of their Exciting Cities unit of the new developments in Wembley Park.


Two members of the cast of the recently ended musical Blood Brothers came to run a workshop for us at JFS. They were Louise Clayton and Michael Southern who acted as Linda and Sammy respectively in the highly acclaimed musical.

We received many tips on how to act and during the few minutes we had left at the end of the session we had time for questions and answers. One of the questions asked was “How do you learn all your lines?” Many students found this helpful as learning lines is essential and very difficult to find a technique that suits you.


The Sixth Form Fair is an annual event run by sixth formers during lunch break for all Year 11 students seeking advice about our A-Level options. Each subject is represented by sixth form students studying them, at the ready to answer any queries and to enlighten the younger students as to what the course will entail and the level of the workload involved.


We were honoured that Alastair Campbell visited JFS to deliver a speech about his political career to the Year 13 assembly. The former senior adviser to Tony Blair shed light on his time in the Cabinet, speaking on a wide range of issues, from Labour Party successes to the infamously rocky relationship between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. He was then grilled by Year 13 students when he opened up to the floor, with many questioning Blair’s controversial decision to go to war with Iraq in 2003.
