School Admissions

CRP for School Admissions for 2024 / 2025 


When applying to a Jewish school or nursery under the religious authority of the Office of the Chief Rabbi, you will need to have completed a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) form. This is done by collecting points, which can be obtained (in person) through various community-related activities, including synagogue attendance on Shabbat.  


You then send a copy of the completed CRP form directly to your chosen school or nursery, together with relevant supporting documents and the school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF). Please check the admissions pages of the school(s) in question for their specific requirements. 


CRP points are needed for nursery, primary school, secondary school and sixth form entry (ie if your child will be transferring to a different secondary school for the sixth form).
