A special educational needs school has raised over £2.25 million to modernise their new school site in Pinner.
The Gesher School will be moving to new premises at the former Moriah School on Cannon Lane next month, for the start of the term in September 2021.
The school launched a fundraising campaign in July and raised a staggering figure of over two million pounds in just 36 hours. The money raised will go towards the expansion and modernisation of the school site, with provision for occupational therapy and sensory rooms.
A spokesperson for Gesher School said: “This September Gesher reopens in its new permanent home expanding into an all-through school for 120 children and young people with learning differences. We look forward to sharing the next part of Gesher’s journey with you and continuing to change a small part of the world for an extraordinary group of children and young people.”
Howard Zetter, Chair of Governors said: “This is a hugely exciting expansion project that will enable Gesher children and families to have a clear educational pathway and is testament to the huge success of the school, its necessity and its popularity in the community”.
Brian Leaver, Chair of Harrow Jewish Day School Trust, said: “We are pleased to be able to welcome Gesher to our beautiful three-acre site in Pinner and look forward to nurturing Gesher’s future growth in the buildings and grounds that were created with the generous help of our benefactors more than 20 years ago to educate Jewish children in this leafy corner of northwest London”.
