This week Chabad Lubavitch Senior Girls School received an excellent report from the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted). The report gave a mixture of outstanding and good grades to the Senior Girls School, in particular rating Lubavitch’s quality of provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as outstanding.

This news is greeted with great satisfaction as Lubavitch continuously strives to encourage students to meet people from all walks of life, taking every opportunity possible to educate students about their own and other cultures (Most recently students contributed to the Haiti fund via the Chabad international network Chabad.org).

 Lubavitch Senior Girls School welcomes visits from guests outside the community and was recently visited by a local Muslim psychiatrist. In addition, pupils engage with the democratic process by visiting sites such as the Houses of Parliament, law courts and, most recently, many visited Hackney Town Hall to watch a planning committee meeting discuss the future of the local Skinners School site in Stamford Hill.

Rabbi Bentzi Sudak, Chief Executive of Chabad Lubavitch UK said: “This achievement is a huge testament to the hard work of all the staff at Lubavitch and especially Mrs Helen  Freeman and Mrs. Golda Junik who have transformed the school to where it is today. Chabad Lubavitch ethos encourages students to take on responsibility, whether that may be organising youth groups, teaching Sunday morning religious classes or giving students the opportunity to voice their concerns and suggestions for improvement at the school council meetings. This report reflects this ethos and is a huge testament to everybody involved at the school.”

Rabbi Shmuel Lew, Headmaster of Lubavitch Senior Girls School said: “The report reflects the quality of our pupils, and the amazing effectiveness of our senior staff and teachers, in bringing out their best. We continually make strides to ensure the education of the children schooled at Lubavitch is of the highest quality. “

Mrs Freeman, Headmistress at Lubavitch Senior Girls School said: “We are proud of all the pupils’ hard work which has enabled us to achieve this wonderful accolade. It just goes to show what you can achieve with hard work. ”

Well done. It is very difficult to get an 'outstanding' rating by Ofsted. They recognise the high standard of Kodesh, Chol and general attitude. This is a clear reflection of how the school is.
