JFS receives top marks from Ofsted inspectors

JFS has been commended by Ofsted inspectors in their second report since its move to Kenton in 2002.

Concluding that “the school’s overall effectiveness is outstanding”, the inspectors noted a high quality of teaching: “Students know what is expected of them and, as a result, they tackle their work with confidence.”

The inspectors were also impressed by pupils’ moral, social and cultural development, by the “excellent” sixth-form education and by the JFS management and leadership.

Headteacher Jonathan Miller said the school had “achieved this outcome through a strong and effective partnership between students, parents and staff which treats every student as an individual and helps them reach their potential.”

Added governors’ chair Russell Kett: “Our students, of course, deserve our congratulations.

“They clearly help to bring out the best in their teachers.”
