At JFS we promote a 'gap year' as excellent preparation for university and wider life. Many of our students spend the year before proceeding to university on a 'gap year'. The vast majority spend some or all of their time in Israel. JFS students participate in a wide range of post 'A' Level programmes in Israel, some learning in Seminary or Yeshivah, others participating in youth movement programmes of Jewish Education and Social Action.

Our Sixth Form Jewish Studies team are available to give guidance on what is available in Israel to enhance our students' experience of this enriching year. With many JFS alumni living in Israel and some of our students taking a second 'gap year' in Israel, there is always a friendly JFS face around.
