The second round of 11+ offers for places at JFS have been made via local authorities. If you do not receive an offer from JFS at this stage, please help us during this period by not telephoning the School. Rest assured the Admissions Officer will be working hard to process the acceptances and establish whether there may be further places we can offer. We appreciate this can be a stressful time for families and your courtesy towards the Admissions department would be appreciated. Thank you for your patience. Information about making an appeal can be found below:
The deadline for September 2016 applications has now passed. You may make a late application, but this will not be considered in the first round of offers.
11+ ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2017
The deadliner for application to join Year 7 in September 2017 is 27 October 2016. You are welcome to visit the School on one of our Open Mornings and to attend our Prospective Parents Open Evening that will take place in September 2016.
You will be required to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) SIF 2017 . In addition, you will also be required to obtain 3 points on a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) CRP 2017 if you wish to be considered as a priority applicant. Both the SIF and CRP must be sent directly to JFS once they have been completed.
Shabbat attendances at a Synagogue are required to obtain some, or all of your points on the CRP. Applicants will be required to register with a Synagogue in order to have their attendances recorded; these attendances must then be verified by an authorised signatory of a synagogue. We suggest that you make contact with your Synagogue as soon as possible to find out how your child's attendance will be recorded.
Once offers have been made and places have been accepted, we will invite students to attend testing, as we have done in the past, in order to place students into the correct Tutor Groups. The accelerated and mixed ability Tutor Groups as well as the gifted and talented programmes will remain unchanged and will not be affected by this process.
Our DfE number is 304 4033
We look forward to receiving your application.
