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 school like no other.
Our Results: We have a track record of outstanding academic results and on the basis of our 2019 outcomes have been named Sunday Times Greater London State Secondary of the Year 2019. 44% of A level grades were at A*or A, with over a quarter of the cohort scoring at least two A grades. Level 3 vocational outcomes were equally strong, with 70% of grades at Distinction or better. At GCSE, half of grades were at grade 7 or higher, and a third of the cohort achieved at least 8 GCSEs at grade 7 or better. Our ALPS grade is 2 at both A level and GCSE, and our ‘Progress 8’ score is 0.68. Nine students gained places at Oxbridge this year, and on top of this (as is typical) students secured places for Medicine, Art, Architecture & Media and other competitive courses at prestigious institutions.
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; our rich CPL programme includes full induction for new teaching staff including NQTs, NPQH/SL/ML programmes, and financial support for MA courses, Action Research projects and many other opportunities. Additional responsibilities are always considered for suitable candidates and we offer NQTs employment for the last few weeks of the summer term. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all staff*. Our website details a huge number of wellbeing initiatives offering something for everyone. https://jcoss.org/recruitment/staff-wellbeing-at-jcoss

Our Location & Community: TThe 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 have submitted plans for expansion in response to significant long term over-subscription.
This Role: The Business faculty has grown every year, with large numbers taking our courses at Key Stage 4 and in the Sixth Form. We are a strong and friendly team and our students are a pleasure to teach. We have recently introduced Cambridge Technical Business and our results have been excellent. We are looking for a dynamic and creative teacher who loves teaching and loves Business.
We are primarily looking for a strong Business teacher who can teach vocational Business as well as GCSE and A-level. The successful candidate should be able to teach Computing and ICT to Years 7 and 8.
