Student Personalities and Behaviour
I came from a strong Methodist background and found that the moral values and ethos of a faith school fitted very easily with my world view. I would highlight two features of JFS students:- their sheer teachability, much helped by very supportive parents and a great sense of wit and humour.
First and foremost, our students are a joy to teach. Because JFS is a comprehensive school there is a variety ofbehaviour and ability, but JFS has just the right mixture to keep the job very interesting.
When I think about the atmosphere in my own high school I feel so secure at JFS. The students are overwhelmingly well mannered and well disciplined. For those who aren't, there are tremendous back up systems both for the students and the teachers who are managing challenging situations.
