The Sixth Form Experience

Independence, responsibility, leadership and commitment to the student body as a whole are strongly encouraged.

We ensure that our Sixth Form experience is fulfilling and inspiring for all; from a positive Jewish life through to the enhancement provided by our exceptional extra-curricular programme.

The principles of care and quality of teaching that are such strong features of JFS are as essential to our Sixth Form provision as they are to the lower school. Academic progress is closely monitored by our Sixth Form staff team of tutors, Assistant Heads of Year, Heads of Year for each of Years 12 and 13, as well as an Assistant Headteacher who is overall head of Sixth Form. Group tutorials are held to discuss study skills, higher education and current affairs. Our links with universities are so strong that JFS has produced a nationally recognised Guide to Higher Education.

Most students embark on three A Level subjects or the BTEC equivalent in Year 12 and will continue these in Year 13. There is also the opportunity to study for an EPQ qualification and those students studying further mathematics usually do this as a fourth subject. For those students who need them, there are GCSE re-sit courses in English and mathematics.
