Kisharon School is the only Jewish special needs school in North West London. The school can accommodate up to 38 pupils and caters for a wide range of special educational needs, from moderate learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders to more severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties. 

Kisharon has an orthodox Jewish ethos but  accepts students from across the Jewish community.   The school accepts pupils from across North/North West London as well as from surrounding authorities who have complex needs and have an Education Health and Care Plan.

The curriculum has been designed to meet the broad spectrum of needs of our pupils as well as being developmentally and age appropriate.   The central theme of our curriculum is to support our students in gaining independence in adult life which for many includes moving into supported living and gaining work opportunities.

In addition to our specialist trained teachers we also have our own therapy team who work closely with teaching staff to support and plan programmes for individual students.  We currently employ speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and a music therapist. 

Kisharon focuses on engaging our pupils with the local and wider community and many educational trips are planned through the year as well as weekly outing sto local shops and facilities.
