Torah Academy

"Educate the child according to his way and when he grows old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs)

Torah Academy is an independence Jewish Primary School, inspected and registered by the Department of Education and Science. The school covers education of boys and girls from 2 to 11. It is situations in two large Victorian houses close to the sea front in a residential area of Hove with New Church Synagogue within the grounds.

Torah Academy is a community-wide Jewish school, founded in 1988 with just six pupils. It started as it meant to continue, with children from across the spectrum of the community. Thus, children who attend the school range through Orthodox, Reform and Progressive to unaffiliated.

This is a very happy school and its pupils and teacher pride themselves in their caring nature. All who visit the school comment on the friendly atmosphere and stimulating environment. There is obvious care which goes into the work and a wide variety of activities which the pupils undertake, both in and out of the classroom.
