Information about this school
Ahavas Torah Boys Academy is a Jewish faith school for boys aged 11 to 16 years located in Salford. It
occupies the upper two floors of a large Victorian house, the lower part of which is occupied by Tashbar
CrÃƒÂ¨che, which is separately registered.
The school was opened in response to the increasing demand for school places in the Orthodox Jewish
communities of North Manchester, Salford and Prestwich and is registered for 45 pupils. There are currently 30 pupils on the roll, none of whom has a statement of special educational needs.
The school aims to, `provide an excellent secular education which is guided by and also gives over the
principles of orthodox Judaism' and `to build an atmosphere of happiness and achievement whilst instilling within pupils a deep and passionate love for, and understanding of, their own religion, coupled with an uncompromising respect for other religions and lifestyles different to their own'.
The majority of the school day is devoted to kodesh with chol at the end of the afternoon. The school is
open six days per week.
The school opened in August 2013 and this is its first inspection.
