Jewish Studies

The Jewish Studies Department is core to the life of the school and the Orthodox Jewish ethos pervades all that we do. The Religious Education syllabus has been devised by staff at the school, tailored specifically for our own pupils, and approved by the Governing Body.

The Head of Religious Studies is Rebetzen Mrs Cohen. RE teaching is also delivered by Mrs Cooper, Mrs Halter and Mrs Lesser, and RE lessons are supported by Mrs Davis and Mrs Posaner.

The Jewish Studies Department also includes the subject of Ivrit (Modern Hebrew). Ivrit is taught throughout the school as part of RE lessons, and in separate dedicated lessons - a half-hour each week in Years One and Two, and an hour each week in Years Three up to Six. Mrs Hensman is our Ivrit teacher and she is supported in lessons by Mrs Halter and Mrs Posaner.
