The student parliament at JCoSS has been a hot political ticket of late, with a visit from Education Secretary Michael Gove following Labour leader Ed Miliband's tour of the cross-communal Barnet school.
Pupils told Mr Gove of their parliamentary achievements over the past year and the minister noted with interest their favourite lesson - a history-based version of Deal or No Deal. Mr Gove also observed science and English classes and visited the school's provision for students on the autistic spectrum.
Praising JCoSS's "outstanding achievements", he professed himself "very impressed with the pupils, facilities and quality of teaching. I was also delighted to meet members of the student parliament - an impressive group of young and confident students, especially as they are only year seven and eight. It is clear that JCoSS is a credit to the community."
