Sinai school

. It is the largest Jewish primary school in Europe, and has always been regarded as a successful co-educational school for children aged 3-11.

The school was opened in September 1981, named after benefactor Sir Michael Sobell, a pioneer manufacturer of radio and television. The earliest pupils to study at the school were former students of the Solomon Wolfson and Yavneh primary schools. Since the school opened, there have been major extensions to the building to include a dedicated computer suite with interactive whiteboards, a gymnasium, a music room, a new teaching block for years five and six including a support room and an extension to the nursery suite.

The current head teacher is Vivienne Orloff, who was appointed in the mid-1990s. In 2005, Sinai was chosen for one of the first national 'short OFSTED inspections' for which only the top schools were chosen. Sinai continues to produce high level test results, and the majority of students achieve above-average levels in SATs.
