This is a genuinely exciting opportunity to lead one of England’s finest state-maintained schools, situated on a modern campus with superb facilities, totally dedicated staff and wonderful students.

JFS School is a high achieving, oversubscribed, mixed, comprehensive, voluntary-aided Orthodox Jewish faith school, whose Foundation Body is the United Synagogue.

After an interim period with both an Executive Head and an Acting Headteacher, the governors have decided to revert to a single Headteacher and both of these temporary positions will cease following this appointment.

The governors very much welcome applications from all who are suitably qualified, regardless of faith.

An enhanced salary will recognise the prestige of the School and the responsibilities of the Headteacher. JFS is currently a Group 8 School (Inner London).

An application form, job specification and additional details may be obtained from the advisers to the governors at: brsweducation@gmail.com.

If you wish to speak to an adviser about this opportunity then please email us and we shall respond.

The closing date for applications is noon on 31 October 2017. Long-list interviews will take place during the week beginning 27 November, with short-list interviews in the week beginning 11 December.

For information about the school, take a look at our website:

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. The appointment will be subject to pre-employment checks, including satisfactory Enhanced Level DBS clearance.
