Our aim is that every Kerem graduate should be a confident, happy and motivated child who achieves his or her maximum potential in Secular and Jewish Studies
The Kerem School Early Years Unit seeks to lay firm foundations for future learning across all areas of experience.
Kerem School is proud of its excellent academic record. Emphasis is placed on individual attention being given to each child so that the highest possible standard can be reached.
We want our pupils to enjoy their time with us, recognising their strong personal link with Jewish learning, traditions and culture under the guidance of our Rabbi.
We have an exceptional team of professional teachers whose major priority is to help every pupil achieve his or her potential and find expression for individual talents.
Kerem School is accredited by the Independent Schools Council (ISC).
The history of Kerem School began in 1948 when Stanley Frankfurt established Kerem School for children from three years old up to the age of seven in the old Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue hall. The school subsequently acquired the site in Kingsley Way, Hampstead Garden Suburb, which is now the home of Kerem’s Early Years Unit.
In 1956 the school was successfully extended to full primary education and Kerem School was developed on the current Norrice Lea site by parents who wanted their children to be educated to a high standard in a traditional Jewish environment up to the age of eleven. Kerem School is situated alongside the Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue and the classrooms underwent total refurbishment in 1994.
The Kerem School Early Years Unit in Kingsley way offers unique facilities for pre-school children. Both the extensive garden with all-weather safety surface and the light airy building offer children opportunities to enjoy their early years education.
Kerem School offer a stimulating atmosphere which we warmly invite you to come and see for yourself.
Kerem School was founded in 1948. Our founders were committed to creating a school which would provide a Torah atmosphere, educate boys and girls to the highest standards, be Zionist and teach the Hebrew language.
Kerem School, today, is a local modern-Orthodox Jewish private school for children aged 3-11, preparing them to achieve places at the best secondary schools in London. Our pupils obtain places at a variety of independent and state schools. Our small classes enable us to give individual attention, ensuring that pupils reach their full potential.
We offer excellence in secular and Jewish Studies and our structured and caring atmosphere fosters happy, confident children. Taking the National Curriculum as our starting point, we provide pupils with the opportunity to work over and above these levels and to thrive in a stimulating academic environment.
Enshrined in our code of behaviour is a high respect for education and other members of society. The ideal Kerem pupil is self-confident, polished, polite and self-disciplined.
Kerem graduates are taught a commitment to traditional Judaism and its values, together with a love of Israel. Hebrew as a living language, as well as a language of prayer, is emphasised throughout the school in our Jewish Studies programme.
