Former students, parents and staff at King Solomon High School have paid tribute to departing headteacher Spencer Lewis.
Mr Lewis is leaving at the end of term after 19 years at the school, in Forest Road, Barkingside.
He is going on to become the headteacher of Yavneh College, in Hertfordshire. Dena Coleman - founder and headteacher of the Jewish school - died suddenly last month.
Around 200 former students, staff, Rabbanim and councillors gathered to celebrate Mr Lewis’ time at King Solomon on June 23.
They looked back over his journey from Jewish studies teacher to principal in “This is your KS Life”.
Mr Lewis said: “I would like to thank the governors for a tremendous send off.
“King Solomon is a wonderful school in a special community which has a very exciting future. I wish the school every success in the years to come.”

An interim headteacher, Simon Harris, has been appointed for the autumn term.
The school would not comment on rumours that Jo Shuter, who resigned as headteacher of the Quintin Kynaston Community Academy after a damning spending report by the Department for Education, would be taking the permanent role.
