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.

In both 2019 and 2020 half of GCSE grades were at 7 or higher, a third of students achieving at least 8 GCSEs at grade 7 or better.  Our ALPS grade has been consistently 2 at both A level and GCSE, and our 2019 ‘Progress 8’ score was 0.68. Seven students gained places at Oxbridge in 2020, and (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*.

We have approval for an additional building, allowing us to expand our intake to 217 per cohort, in response to significant long-term over-subscription.
