JCoSS have announced they will again be creating an additional 30 places for students starting in September 2018, taking the total number of students to 210 for the 2018/19 cohort. These additional places will be given through the lottery allocation.
Patrick Moriarty, Headteacher explained: “We have had another record number of applications this year and in particular a very high number of first choice applications in proportion to the number of places we had to offer. The Governors therefore took the decision to alleviate some pressure in the community and offer 30 additional lottery places. We hope it will go some way to help anxious families feel a little less concerned. We have begun careful planning for the additional numbers, and as this year we are confident that it will be a smooth transition.”
Mr Moriarty concluded: “JCoSS continues to go from strength to strength. The addition of the new Dorfman Wing has allowed a wider curriculum for our 6th Form students for A Level and vocational courses and from September we will now have two year groups with 210 students. Our results speak for themselves and we are delighted that we are able to give 1300 Jewish children an excellent academic, pluralist Jewish education that our community deserves.
