  • Carmel College was a predominantly Jewish co-educational boarding school in England operating between 1948 and 1997. It was first situated at Greenham Common near Newbury and then at Mongewell Park near Wallingford, Oxfordshire. It was one of Europe's only two Jewish boarding schools, the other being in Gateshead. It also had a very small number of pupils who were not of Jewish descent, as day pupils. Carmel College alumni are known as "Old Carmelis"; in 1973 the school was referred to as the "Jewish Eton" by The Observer correspondent, Chaim Bermant. Typical boarding fees in 1996 were £10,000 per school term (i.e. £30,000 per year). The selection process was competitive and applicants were required to sit entrance exams, as well as demonstrate the ability to contribute to the school ethos and uphold core school values. In 1990 and through to 1997 it topped the list of the 20 most expensive boarding schools in the country. The school had a substantial number of international students from Europe and the Americas and an ethos of respect, diligence and social responsibility was instilled in students as part of the pastoral care provided by housemasters and tutors. The school practised a mainstream Orthodox Judaism, more Orthodox than the practice of most of the pupils' families. The aim was to turn out young international students who were authentically both secular and appreciative of religion. Pupils who attended were generally upper/upper middle class or had parents with incomes that allowed private schooling. Many students went on to university, including top tier major universities in Britain and overseas. A small number of scholarships were provided to those who demonstrated exceptional ability in subjects like Mathematics and Sciences. Most of these scholarship students went on to contribute significant funds to the school when they had succeeded in professional life. The school was particularly strong in mathematics and science subjects, with a chemistry department developed by the innovative chemistry master Romney Coles, author of Chemistry Diagrams, a book illustrating industrial chemical processes. Coles had the position of Headmaster when Kopul Rosen was Principal.
