An Orthodox independent primary for girls unable to find Jewish school places elsewhere is to open in September at Kingsbury Synagogue.
The B'nos Primary School will start with two forms, nursery and reception, and already has 20 girls signed up.
Governors' chair Richard Harounoff said the school was needed as the Menorah Primary in Golders Green, Beis Yaakov in Colindale and Noam Primary in Wembley were oversubscribed. "This school has been created, not as competition, but simply because there are not enough places. It has good premises and well-regarded rabbis involved."
