MAKING THE GRADE

Miriam Reissner

The emotions felt by thousands of primary school pupils and their parents on Monday ranged from joy and relief to frustration and disappointment. After months of patiently waiting, this was the day they finally found out if their 10 or 11-year-old had been accepted into their secondary school of choice. For new Jewish secondary school pupils, the coming academic year offers more options than ever before with September's highly-anticipated opening of JCoSS secondary school in Barnet. Meanwhile, following the recent Supreme Court verdict on its admissions policy, JFS in Kenton will offers places to Jewish children from all spheres of the community.
