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 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: Our early cohorts have achieved outstanding GCSE results, with 40% of grades at A*/A and just under a quarter of students achieving 9A or better. We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the two years so far and consistently achieved ALPS Grade 2 at GCSE and A level and were a top 100 non-selective school nationally in 2015. Our first full cohort has secured several places for Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science.
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.
