Individual Needs and Inclusion
Whatever your child’s ability and talent, we pride ourselves in offering a programme which enables each and every child to reach their full potential.
Each student is an individual and at JFS everyone is given the opportunity to grow in a nurturing and caring environment. We look out for one another and quickly identify the individual talents of every one of our students, providing them with personal support to help them flourish.
We have a comprehensive intake and yet, over 90% of our students proceed onto ‘A’ Level courses in our Sixth Form. On leaving JFS, our students join the best universities the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.
Our stimulating Enrichment programme is academically rigorous and challenging. Students enjoy exceptional opportunities whether engaging CEOs of blue-chip companies or studying Classical Civilisations. Our students achieve exceptional success in competitive debating, honing their skills and building their confidence.
In Year 7 setting by ability is introduced for all students in Maths, English, Jewish Studies and Ivrit. This is expanded from Year 8 onwards to ensure maximum flexibility for each student’s own development and educational achievement.
Our Special Educational Needs Department is highly professional, caring and proficient. They ensure that those students who need specific support are able to flourish.
We offer the broadest extra-curricular choice with something on offer for everyone.
The JFS vision of student support means that we care for each child’s individual needs. These needs might range from participating in Oxbridge masterclasses to the temporary support of a Counsellor, from sessions with a Learning Mentor to guidance from a Peer Buddy. We are also extremely adept at supporting and nurturing those with a long term special educational need.
