The new JFS chair of governors is accountant Michael Glass, 47, a foundation governor at the Kenton school since 2006 and vice-chairman for a year.
“I think it’s a very exciting challenge,” the Edgware resident said. “It’s time to move forward and concentrate on the academic elements and Jewish studies progression.”
He has two children, aged 13 and 16, who are currently JFS pupils and a third who finished last year.
Outgoing governors’ chair Russell Kett said the Supreme Court decision on JFS admissions was the “lowlight” of his tenure.
Highlights had been outstanding Ofsted and Pikuach reports, the best-ever exam performances and extended sixth-form dining, classroom and social facilities. Mr Kett will continue to serve as a foundation governor and chair of the admissions committee.
