What The Good Schools Guide says..
JCoSS was established to be a ‘pluralistic’ Jewish secondary, where all who ‘self-identified as Jewish’ would be welcome. ‘Religiously, we were doing something different,’ says the head. ‘Here, whether you’re Orthodox, Masorti, Reform or Secular, we believe that’s a valid expression of tradition.’
What the school says...
JCoSS is a high achieving pluralist Jewish school which combines academic excellence, rapid progress for all and a unique welcoming environment in an inspiring £48m building. Our students and their families are aspirational and hugely supportive, drawn from all sectors of the Jewish community. Our strapline is “Achieve, Enrich, Inspire”: we aim to develop students as Mensches – rooted and engaged in their Jewish identity, looking outward to other faiths and to the wider community, and committed to social action. Their outstanding academic progress and outcomes are testament to the quality of our learning ethos and the culture of challenge and support that pervades the school. ...Read more

Taught (RE and English) at Latymer in Edmonton, Bishop Stopford’s School, Enfield, and Haberderdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls. Arrived at JCoSS in 2010 as deputy head. ‘The opportunity of a new school was very exciting and I liked the fact that it was a faith school.’ Despite his unlikely background (‘I told them I wasn’t Jewish and I was contemplating studying for the priesthood’), he started nine months before the school opened, helping ‘finesse’ the curriculum.
Breathtakingly energetic, genial and thoughtful, he has undoubtedly delivered on the promise of balancing an outstanding...
