A classy address

By Charlie Jacoby, November 19, 2009

Estate agent Savills has published research showing that access to a good school has an important effect on local house prices. Homes in the vicinity of the top-performing 25 per cent of secondary schools now cost 16 per cent more than their county average, up from 13 per cent in 2007. Homes in areas with a combination of good state and independent schools can be worth two or three times their county average. During the recent downturn, property prices around the top 25 per cent of schools fell by just under 16 per cent, suggesting that good schools can help recession-proof a home.

Synagogue attendance is not essential for JCoSS admission

September 17, 2009

The revised admissions policy for the Jewish Community Secondary School launching in Barnet next September was explained to 1,100 parents and prospective pupils at an open day on Sunday.

As with other Jewish schools, JCoSS has been reviewing its admissions criteria following a Court of Appeal judgment in June. In line with its commitment to be open to all Jews, synagogue attendance does not necessarily have to be a condition of entry. However, JCoSS will require evidence of shul membership or proof of two of three other conditions.


Hulks make an incredible splash

By Robyn Rosen, September 10, 2009

An investment banker made a splash at the weekend by going out in green body paint and ripped clothes to row 22 miles for charity dressed as the Incredible Hulk.

Dan Shooter, 30, steered his team to a respectable showing in the Great River Race from London Docklands to Ham in Richmond, finishing in two hours 42 minutes.

Mr Shooter, who had rowed only once before, was joined by former Watford Grammar School pals Anthony Flaum and Alec Parkinson and eight friends from his Nottingham University days.


Cross-communal school courts the youth vote

August 27, 2009

In a new departure, potential pupils of the cross-communal Jewish Community Secondary School due to open in Barnet in September 2010 are being sent a mini-prospectus.

The booklet-style guide assures children that JCoSS will not be scary because “everybody will be new, even the teachers. You’ll be there from the beginning, helping to shape the school.”


Lions make flying start

By Danny Caro, August 17, 2009

London Lions got the new season under way with a firm and tidy performance to beat Sandridge Rovers 3-1 in the Herts Senior County League Premier Division.

Victory came courtesy of goals from Guy Morris, Adam Stolerman and debutant Daniel Levenfiche for last season's runners-up.

Defender Guy Morris registered Lions first goal of the brand new season as Tony Gold’s men ensured a scoreline which reflected their superiority.

But they had to be patient and persistent to unlock a Sandridge rearguard which looked especially solid in a eventful first half.


Doctor’s site is a tonic for shul

By Jay Grenby, August 13, 2009

The independent Edgware Sephardi Congregation has approved a proposal to convert a former doctor’s surgery in Edgwarebury Lane into a synagogue — its first permanent home in its 15-year existence.

Members’ backing of the plan at an EGM was the final stage of a process which began 18 months ago when the 50-family congregation decided that their rented Hale Lane meeting place was unsuitable on grounds of space and access.

A generous private loan enabled the community to purchase the vacant surgery in the face of stiff competition.
