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.


Our annual Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations at JFS were as exuberant as ever this year!

Dancing to a live performance from Eitan Freilich, students and staff enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere, with wonderful food, in beautiful sunshine.

Happy Birthday Israel!
