Barry Toberman of the Jewish Chronicle just published a lovely piece on SLJPS. You can read it here

Some excerpts from the article:

The potential of the South London Jewish Primary School to regenerate Jewish life in the region is evidenced by the number of inquiries to project leaders since its application was approved.

SLJPS co-chair Eugene Ryvchin said the response from both the Jewish and wider community had been “overwhelming. The school is likely to be oversubscribed.” The heightened interest included emails from parents “asking where the school might be as they are thinking of moving to the area”.

Mr Ryvchin recalled that, when his family moved to Wimbledon a few years ago, “we picked it because it had synagogues. Naively, we didn’t look into education until we came here. Now we want the school to be a mezuzah on the bridges to south London.”
