About this Organisation
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 faith school like no other.
Our Results: We have a track record of excellent academic results. In 2017 43% of GCSE grades were at A*/A or 9-7, and well over a quarter of our students achieved eight A/7 grades or better. We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the three years so far (0.6 in 2017), and were a Top-100 non-selective school nationally in 2015. At A level 66% of grades were at B grade or better, and 80% of vocational outcomes at Distinction or better; our first full cohort secured several Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science places, with the great majority going to Russell Group or Top 25 Universities, the picture of offers is even stronger for our second cohort. We have consistently achieved a high ALPS Grade 2 at both KS4 and KS5.
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 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 Location & Community: The 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 are planning an expansion in response to over-subscription.
