How to Apply

Welcome to Shalom Noam

Shalom Noam is a warm, happy and nurturing school in which we aim to equip our pupils with the skills and confidence that will allow them to continue to grow and flourish once they leave the school. We aim to instil strong Torah values first and foremost, focusing on Middos and Chesed, as well as strong British values, and to provide the children with a rounded education in Kodesh and Chol that will allow them to become valued members of both the Jewish community and society as a whole.

If you are thinking of applying to Shalom Noam, we invite you to experience the warmth of our school first-hand. Please contact the School Office to arrange a tour.
