Two staff members, Miss Thoret and Mrs Simons, were nominated for the PaJeS Jewish School Awards which took place last week.

We are delighted to announce that Mrs Simons was the winner of the Secondary Hebrew Teacher of the Year category and that Miss Thoret was one of three finalists in the Secondary Assistant Head/Deputy Head category.

We congratulate them both on their well-deserved accolades.


Mona Golabek, the star performer of 'The Pianist Of Willesden Lane' provided three special performances to JFS students in an adaptation of her book 'The Children of Willesden Lane'.

In a tribute to her mother's legacy of a child of the 'Kindertransport', Mona tells her story of survival, inspiration and strength empowering her audiences to "be a hero in your own journey."


This week the JFS Year 8 Girls team began their outdoor football season. They played five games in total, drawing one with Alperton School and winning four against, St Gregory’s, Kingsbury and Wembley schools, despite being a player down.

This sets them up as top of the league for future fixtures and well placed to make the finals. Well done to Darcy, Minnie, Amelie, Ruby, Izie and Georgia.  



Our best runners at JFS recently competed in the Middlesex County Cross Country Championships, hosted at the prestigious Harrow School.

The team has much to be proud of and it was remarked how well they all ran.

In the girl’s team Chloe (Y9) narrowly missed out on qualifying for the English Schools Championships by one position placing, ending 17th out of 74 runners.
