Quote from a graduate currently working as an LSA at JCoSS:

“This role is a fantastic opportunity for graduates with an interest in any future career working with children/young people. It provides an invaluable foundation whether you are seeking to further your career in education or pursue an alternative career working with adolescents (e.g. psychology, counselling, allied health professions etc). The Learning Support faculty at JCoSS is extensive and its facilities are state of the art. There are opportunities to gain a wide variety of experience including in class support, mentoring and small group interventions, and training provided is at an excellent standard, delivered by both in-house and external professionals.”


Our Vision: JCoSS is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes.

Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again. Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition. The staff and leadership team includes different faiths, and none, at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity. We are a faith school like no other.

Our Results: We have a track record of excellent academic results. In 2017 43% of GCSE grades were at A*/A or 9-7, and well over a quarter of our students achieved eight A/7 grades or better. We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the three years so far (0.6 in 2017), and were a Top-100 non-selective school nationally in 2015. At A level 66% of grades were at B grade or better, and 80% of vocational outcomes at Distinction or better; our first full cohort secured several Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science places, with the great majority going to Russell Group or Top 25 Universities. We have consistently achieved a high ALPS Grade 2 at both KS4 and KS5.

Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development. Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers on Schools Direct and other similar programmes and have benefited from financial support for MA courses. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all colleagues including support staff*
* (Children, Jewish and non-Jewish, of JCoSS staff who have a permanent contract of employment and have completed two years of service on the last day of the summer term of the academic year prior to application)

Our Location & Community: The school is in beautiful new £48m buildings overlooking the Green Belt. It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links and buses run past the entrance. We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We are planning an expansion in response to over-subscription.

This Role: Are you looking for a new challenge, perhaps working with students with a range of learning needs?
We are a successful and highly inclusive school with a dedicated, supportive and forward-thinking team of learning support assistants.
Your main duties will be to support students with their learning in lessons and to work with them individually and in small groups. We wish to appoint colleagues who:
• have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
• are able to work effectively as part of a team
• experience of, or interest in, supporting students with a range of individual needs

The position would suit those considering a teaching career (opportunities exist, for suitable candidates, to be sponsored for teacher training in the future) wishing to gain experience in a mainstream secondary school, or seeking experience working with teenagers in a supportive role in a stimulating environment.

JCoSS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to satisfactory enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
