eNews has been reissued to include all students who have reached the National Chidon Hatanach.  Sincere apologies to Tsofia for not including her in the first publication.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are delighted to announce that out of 93 students from 13 UK Jewish schools, the following students were successful in getting through to the National Chidon Hatanach from Hasmonean:

Beginner Stream

Yehuda Leib G.– Year 7

Junior Stream

Shira S. – Year 9

Noa S. – Year 9

Tsofia K. – Year 9

Mazel tov to all of those who competed and especially well done to those who will progress to the next round.

The National Chidon will take place in London at 1pm on Sunday 9 January 2022 in the presence of Rabbis, teachers, parents and dignitaries.

In other news, we were delighted to welcome Jonathan Hellewell LVO, the Prime Minister’s Special Adviser for Faith, and Rory Gribbell, his Special Adviser for Education, to the Boys’ School today on a visit arranged by Rabbi Meyer OBE, Executive Director of PaJeS. It was a pleasure to take them around the school, hear their warm words of praise about what they saw and discuss issues relating to educational policy and faith schools in general.

With best wishes,


Mr A McClusky
CEO, Hasmonean MAT
