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 were named Sunday Times Greater London State Secondary of the Year 2020. 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 was 2 at both A level and GCSE, and our ‘Progress 8’ score was 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 on Schools Direct and equivalent programmes, while others have benefited from financial support for MA or similar courses. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all colleagues including support staff*. Our website details a huge number of wellbeing initiatives offering something for everyone.
