Quotes from Akiva Parents
'An incredible school which provides the highest quality of education to the children it nurtures.'
'We feel blessed to be part of the Akiva community.'
'The first time we visited Akiva, we knew it was special and without doubt our number one choice. The quality of teaching, support and facilities, together with its amazing atmosphere makes Akiva a fantastic school'.
'What I love at Akiva is the holistic approach to education. Every child is encouraged and helped to be the best that they can be individually and as part of a community.'
'Akiva has helped my children to develop their Progressive Jewish identity in a very special way. They have also enjoyed learning about other religions and cultures both in the classroom and on visits to other schools and religious sites. In my opinion this is crucial for a faith school and the balance between the two has been exceptionally well thought out and implemented.'

‘Akiva has provided my child with a caring, safe environment in which to grow and develop her Jewish life. She enthusiastically talks about what she has learnt in Jewish Studies and surprises us with her knowledge of Hebrew. We are proud to be part of the Akiva family.’
‘We value the way that Akiva naturally blends Jewish learning and a passion for Judaism across subjects. This way Judaism is not seen as a standalone ‘subject’ to be liked or disliked. Instead it is part of school life, the same way as it is part of our everyday lives. In addition, the positive ethos means that our children leave Akiva proud to be Jewish.’
