Leo Baeck College is situated on a beautiful seven-acre site in the heart of North London. Located between East Finchley and Finchley Central, the campus has large, peaceful and attractive gardens. The building we occupy is an impressive Grade II* listed Manor House built in 1723. It features a grand main staircase and fine chimney pieces, panelling and decorative plaster throughout. We also make use of a link block attached to the Manor House. The buildings provide an atmospheric backdrop as we engage in the study of our own tradition and texts.
In addition to our ample classrooms, seminar rooms, student study rooms, staff room and office, the Manor House is also home to the LBC Library which contains one of the best Judaica collections of its kind in Europe. Plans currently exist to enlarge the library by creating a large reading room which will offer more direct access to books.
Leo Baeck College is part of the larger Sternberg Centre – which includes the Akiva Primary School, the Movement for Reform Judaism, New North London Synagogue, the Shofar Day Nursery, Finches School, the Art Stables, MRJ Beit Din, EUPJ, The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, a bookshop specialising in Judaica, a café and a mikveh.
The Manor House has an external lift to the ground floor to provide disabled access by-passsing the outside steps. A wheelchair-accessible toilet is also available.
Transport links to central London and the rest of the UK are within easy reach.
