Jnetics in Schools

Jnetics tests sixth form students for free (fully subsidised by Jnetics through fundraising and the generosity of the community) in the eight mainstream Jewish secondary schools in the UK.

Yavneh College, Immanuel College, Hasmonean Girls, Hasmonean Boys, JFS, JCoSS, King Solomon and King David (Manchester).

Jnetics visit all the schools each academic year and provide an informative educational assembly to Year 12 and 13 about Jewish genetic disorders and their risk. After the assembly students get the opportunity to register and book their carrier screening test. Jnetics return to school the following week with a group of trained volunteers who advise the students how to do the saliva swab sample. Jnetics then send the samples to the lab and students can expect to receive their results by email in up to 20 weeks’ time.
