College pupils to visit for all things Carmel

main-div Carmel College logo The Carmel Song

Where e'er the road leads on from Carmel

Tread on surely as you chant this phrase

What e'er fate betide you

There's a constant light to guide you

"Know Him in all thy ways."


Both in glory and in sorrow,

Faced with censure or with praise!

You'll find courage for tomorrow

Turn again to Carmel days (remember).


Passing lights shall not delude us

March on boldly with a steadfast gaze

Facing life before us

Chanting out the Carmel chorus

"Know Him in all thy ways."

Carmel College revisited filmed in 2009 which was shown at the reunions in November 2009 and March 2010 at the Village Hotel.


The footage shows shots of Carmel College and a few staff members on site in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

Jewish tradition is based on family life. Explores the way Carmel College, a Jewish boarding school, answers the needs of its pupils - the ethos of the school, the curriculum tailored to meet both the 'Jewish' and the 'public school' aspect, and leisure activities: opera, sport, drama and fun. The place of a separate denominational school is the underlying theme.
