Our school is home to families from diverse backgrounds including those affiliated with Conservative, Reform and Orthodox Judaism, as well as those who are unaffiliated. It is a school for all Jewish students regardless of their background. Our students benefit from small class sizes, outstanding academics and the development of leadership and communication skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

From Our Principal
“The London Community Hebrew Day School has played a vital role in our community for over 50 years, providing the highest quality of Secular and Judaic education. It is with great pride that I work alongside our exceptional staff members, to ensure each of our students flourish both academically and socially in a school that has maintained its unique family style atmosphere since day one. Together we work to build and ensure a strong sense of pride in our Jewish identity, which will carry forward to the communities in which our students choose to live, and strengthen our future by promoting Jewish continuity. To be a part of this institution is to be part of something very special. Here is to another 50 years!“
