About Our School

Nancy Reuben Primary School is a high achieving Independent Selective Orthodox Jewish School rated good overall by Ofsted in October 2017.   Today we have over 200 children on roll aged 2-11.  Our pupils come from Golders Green, Finchley, Edgware, Hendon, St Johns Wood and across North West London.  The school attracts families from both Sefardi and Ashkenazi backgrounds.  Uniquely among local Jewish schools, we have a Play Group and Pre-Kindergarten on site meaning that we cater for children from age 2.   Our Playgroup and Pre-kindergarten classes are very popular and we advise early application.  

In April 2017, a new Head Teacher Anthony Wolfson joined the school along with a new Head of Kodesh Mr Jeremy Richards.   Both are highly experienced professionals.   They were joined in September 2017 by Mrs Shelley Cohen as Teaching Deputy Head.  They have set out on a journey to make Nancy Reuben Primary a centre of academic excellence in Kodesh and secular studies and the school of choice within the local community.  Supported by a fabulous group of professionals on the teaching and support staff and a new Governing Body this new team has really made a massive impact. Consequently NRPS is thriving and going from strength to strength.   In October 2017, Ofsted judged the school as a good school and noted the rapid improvements the new Leadership Team, staff and governors have made in a very short period of time.   

NRPS is a unique school.  Our distinctive character is that we are a community school and a family in every sense of the word.   The school is well known for its warmth and our uniqueness as a school lies in the fact that despite the rich Sefardi and Ashkenazi traditions of our pupils, we have always functioned as a family where everyone feels valued and welcome.   

Our parent body is a close-knit group of people who go out of their way to welcome new families and children.  The PTA at Nancy Reuben run an amazing array of events through the year all of which support projects at the school that really enhance provision.  The most recent example of this is the new Early Years Foundation Stage Outdoor all weather classroom which was professionally installed at the end of October 2017.

Our pupils' excellent attainment allows them to go successfully onto secondary schools of choice. Our Summer 2017 cohort of Year 6 pupils went on to Hasmonean, Immanuel, JfS and Haberdashers and once there, we know NRPS pupils flourish. 

Our secular and Kodesh Curricula are broad and offer a rich mix of formal and informal learning opportunities through the year.  To support this, since September 2017, we have offered a great new choice of  before and after school enrichment clubs including Music, Art, Mad Science, Chess, Netball, Multi- Sports and Gymnastics.   

We invite you to come and see.   We will welcome you most warmly and our Head Teacher and other members of the team will be delighted to show you round and answer any questions.
