In the first part of the Autumn term we would normally have a whole school Open Evening, Sixth Form Open Evening and an Open Morning for families to visit JMHS during the day.  To fulfil the government Coronavirus guidelines we have made alternative plans for these events.

Virtual Open week for Year 6 & Year 5 – Monday 5 October to Friday 9 October
For the Virtual Open week we have made available in this section a range of documents, presentations and videos for parents and students to view. We hope that you enjoy finding out more about JMHS.

Tours for families with Year 6 students
Starting the week commencing Monday 21 September and running until Friday 23 October, members of the Senior Leadership Team will be offering tours of the school site for families. These tours will only be available to families with a Year 6 son/daughter. The tours will last 30 minutes and we require all visitors to wear a face mask whilst on site. When signing in we will ask for full contact details for track and trace purposes.

After October half-term we will make plans to offer tours to Year 5 families, but hope you understand that initially we need to prioritise Year 6.  Further details on how to book these tours will be posted at a later date.
