Year 7 Admissions 2022/2023

We understand that choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions that you and your child will have to make.  We hope this website gives you some initial information about JCoSS, in order to help you take the first steps in ensuring you make the right choice for your family.

JCoSS is regularly oversubscribed and in the event of more applications than places available in any school year, the Governing Body has established an admissions policy. 

The current restrictions on public worship present problems regarding the arrangements in our published Admissions Policy for the school year September 2022-23.

Please click here to view the revised criteria for demonstrating Jewish Practice, which sets out how Governors will assess which applicants will count as ‘First Priority: Jewish Children’ in the oversubscription criteria.  This document should be read in conjunction with the original Admissions Policy.

Year 7 places will be offered on 1st March 2022. If your application for a place was not successful you have a right to appeal. 

If you wish to appeal, please download the Application to Appeal Form or you can request it by emailing admissions@jcoss.barnet.sch.uk.  Please click here to read our Appeals Policy.

You will be provided with full details once an appeal has been lodged.
