Our Vision: JCoSS is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes.
Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again. Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition. The staff and leadership team includes different faiths, and none, at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity. We are a faith school like no other.
Our Results: We have a track record of excellent academic results. In 2017 43% of GCSE grades were at A*/A or 9-7, and well over a quarter of our students achieved eight A/7 grades or better. We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the three years so far (0.6 in 2017), and were a Top-100 non-selective school nationally in 2015. At A level 66% of grades were at B grade or better, and 80% of vocational outcomes at Distinction or better; our first full cohort secured several Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science places, with the great majority going to Russell Group or Top 25 Universities. We have consistently achieved a high ALPS Grade 2 at both KS4 and KS5.
Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development. Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers on Schools Direct and other similar programmes and have benefited from financial support for MA courses. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all colleagues including support staff*

Our Location & Community: The school is in beautiful new £48m buildings overlooking the Green Belt. It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links and buses run past the entrance. We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We are planning an expansion in response to over-subscription.
This Role: Due to the internal promotion of the current postholder, we are looking for an enthusiastic, efficient and committed person to join our school Administration team. This is a busy and varied role that requires adaptability, with a strong focus on team work to ensure the administrative functions of the school are delivered to a high standard. If you are an experienced administrator with a can do attitude, of any faith or none, we are very keen to hear from you.
JCoSS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to satisfactory enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
