In this section of the website you can read about some of the many varied and exciting events that take place at JFS. For a more comprehensive overview, photos and updates please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.


Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of the British Forces in Afghanistan, visited JFS this week to deliver an assembly to Year 12 students as well as the JFS Politics Society, which he followed with a Question & Answer session. Topics covered ranged from the recent Salisbury poisonings (and the British response to them), to the ongoing situation in Syria.


During the week leading up to Yom Ha’atzmaut our JiEP and Ivrit departments conducted a collaborative programme of themed activities during lessons for Years 7-9. They learned about Israel and some of the lesson time resulted in producing ‘Israel 70’ bunting that the students coloured in to decorate the school building. On the morning of Yom Ha'atzmaut at JFS, students participated in a stirring Shacharit Service followed by a sumptuous celebratory breakfast with music and dancing.


Yom Hashoah and Yom Hazikaron have been commemorated at JFS this week with a number of events across the school community. For Yom Hashoah Years 12 and 9 participated in emotional assemblies run by Rabbi Shaw of Mizrachi UK and Chazzan Jonny Turgel. Other year groups had special JS lessons with many students taking home the ‘Yom Hashoah yellow candle’ to light at home.


A strong team of  athletes was selected to represent England at the ISF World Schools Cross Country Championships in Paris on 4 April including JFS student David Stone in Year 11.


The year 7 netball team have had a very successful first term at JFS. The ‘A’ team were entered into the Brent league and won all of their games within their pool. They then went on to beat Queens Park School in a very tight final. We are pleased to announce that the Year 7 girls are Brent Netball Champions. Mrs Tully looks forward to another successful season of netball next year. Well done to Gal Keider, Libby Bellman, Emmy Hayeem, Ora Hayes, Lucy Manton, Ella Wetterhahn, Maya Yefet.
