The University of Cambridge once again hosted the annual Ivrit Spelling Bee Competition. JFS was well represented by some talented students who once again did us proud! Oliver and Daniella from Year 7 came in 2nd and 3rd positions respectively, in the beginners section. Well done to all the participants!


Last Friday, Year 12 student David Launer, came second in the Peterhouse College, Cambridge Kelvin Science Essay Prize. An abridged version of David’s essay is due to be published in a medical publication as the judges were so impressed with his work.

JFS Year 8 and 9 students participated in the Maccabi athletics event at the Leigh Valley Athletics Centre yesterday. Most of the students took away a variety of medals and the girls teams finished fourth and the boys teams finished third overall.

Well done to all the participants.




We hosted our ninth annual Sports Awards ceremony recently welcoming our guest speaker, David Dein, the former vice-Chairman of Arsenal Football Club. Mr Dein, an important figure within football, having sat as President of the G-14 group of European football clubs as well as a number of committees within FIFA and UEFA, spoke about the development of the Premier League and the modern-day footballer.


Year 11 and Year 13 students enjoyed farewell celebrations in school before embarking on their Study Leave.

We wish both year groups much success in their upcoming examinations.
