JCoSS is the UK’s only pluralist cross-communal Jewish Secondary School, providing a high achieving, aspirational environment.


We are committed to the success of each child in all that they do and attach a high value to academic attainment as well as celebrating personal achievement across every field of endeavour. The JCoSS environment enriches our students with a wealth of opportunities both in and out of the classroom so that they are well grounded and well rounded, able to achieve their potential in every way.


JCoSS represents something unique in Jewish and British education.  As a pluralist Jewish school, we promote understanding and enquiry, we open minds and we strengthen dialogue.  We embrace the entire Jewish community regardless of affiliation or observance, teaching the full range of Jewish beliefs, practices and values.  Your child will learn in way that affirms and enhances his or her faith, background and tradition.


Most importantly, we encourage our students to value being a Mensch, a person of kindness and integrity who is committed to Tikkun Olam – Repairing the World.


Our exceptional teachers and subject leaders have a wealth of experience and we are delighted that our GCSE and A Level results put us in the top 7% of schools nationally, making JCoSS the top non-selective school in Barnet.


The JCoSS 6th form has been rated outstanding by Ofsted, and has a wide range of A Level and Vocational courses.  The majority of our Year 13 students leave JCoSS to attend their first choice Universities including Oxbridge and courses such as Medicine, Veterinary School and Dentistry at prestigious Russell Group universities.


JCoSS is very over-subscribed, which has led to an increased intake from 180 to 210 students in some year groups.  Please e-mail admissions@jcoss.barnet.sch.uk for more details.
