Admissions Policy

Our current Admissions policy for Reception 2018 can be found here.

Our approach

Distance is not a barrier

We want everybody who supports our ethos, who fulfils the Jewish practice criteria and who wants to come to the school to have a chance to join our community, regardless of where they live. We use a ballot system to allocate the faith-based places, so that families who live further away have just as much chance of securing a place in the school as families who love close by. We believe that this innovative approach will create a community of families actively engaged with their children’s learning and Jewish education.

How to Apply

At our school, 50% of the 30 places in each school year will be offered solely on the basis of distance from your home to our permanent site in Whetstone and 50% to families who practice Judaism. Our Admissions Policy can be downloaded from here.

In order to apply:

  2. You are also requested to complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which you can access here (applications for consideration under our faith criteria cannot be considered without a completed SIF)

In-year applications

Meet the Head Events for Prospective Parents

We are pleased to announce that, as in previous years, we will be holding a number of Meet the Head events for our Reception 2018 intake between October and December 2017.

Unlike many other schools, which have one or two large open days, our open days/evenings are small, giving parents an opportunity to meet our Headteacher and get a feel for our school and its community.  For this reason places at each session are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, you are therefore encouraged to select up to 3 options to avoid disappointment.

Once you have selected your preferred dates please pencil them into your diary and confirmations will be sent out via email by the last week in September.  Please note that these events are for parents/carers of children starting Reception in September 2018 only.

Please click here to select your preferences. 

If you have any questions please contact us by e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I am afraid that we are unable to organise visits to the school outside our scheduled events.
