A Stamford Hill secondary school has been rewarded for improving its standards with a “good” Ofsted rating.

The Lubavitch Senior Girls’ School had been told it required improvement three years ago by the education watchdog.

But inspectors, who visited the school last month, said the school had improved across the board, and encouraged it to expand its sixth form.

Headteacher Helen Freeman was singled out for praise. The report states: “The head has worked with determination and vision to tackle the areas of weakness identified at the last inspection.”

It also said the school had successfully blended the national curriculum with its Kodesh syllabus which was “carefully mapped out.”

Mrs Freeman said: “I would like to pay tribute to the Hackney Learning Trust as well as the governors, staff and pupils. Our school is a credit to our community and I am proud we will continue to give our pupils a fantastic education.”

From September, the school will have a Year 13, launching a number of courses, including a health and social care qualification.
