A new headteacher has been appointed at the Wohl Campus, Kisharon Noé School in Hendon.
Dr Emily Haddock will start duties at the school from 1 June. She will work with current interim head, Sharon Mullish, until the end of the academic year to ensure a smooth handover, said the school.
Dr Haddock has previously been the executive headteacher of two residential SEND schools, which cater for children with special educational needs.
“I can’t wait to join Kisharon and get to know the young people, staff and families,” she said. “I am looking forward to sharing in the successes and the exciting plans we have for the future!”
The chair of trustees at the school, Emma Castleton, said that Kisharon Noé was “incredibly fortunate” to secure the appointment.
“We wish Emily every success in her new role. Her “Kisharon” – talent will enable us to bring out the talent in each and every one of our students”, she said.
The school, which is committed to a Jewish education ethos, caters for students with special educational needs of both genders aged 4 to 19.
Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.
Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.
For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.
Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.
You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.
There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.
In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.
Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.
In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.
Voice of our community to wider society
The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.
We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
