Beis Rochel d'Satmar Girls' School, situated in London's N16 5DL postcode, is an independent day school catering to girls from ages two to 16. Owned and maintained by the Bais Rochel d'Satmar Charitable Trust, it is part of the Satmar Chassidic community and primarily serves girls from the strictly observant Jewish community in the Stamford Hill and Stoke Newington areas of the London Borough of Hackney. The school's curriculum and teaching are rooted in Yiddish, Kodesh, and secular subjects within the framework of Jewish Law and Satmar Chassidic customs while adhering to statutory educational standards set by the British government.

Beis Rochel d'Satmar has two sites, with older pupils occupying specific purpose-built premises in Stamford Hill and younger pupils residing in refurbished accommodation in Stoke Newington. The school operates primarily through volunteer contributions, accepting very little to no fees and expecting parents to contribute what they can. Teachers are at times paid minimal amounts and often work on a voluntary basis.

Beis Rochel d'Satmar is described as a secure and well-ordered community characterized by friendliness and mutual concern. The school aims to teach children a strong sense of right and wrong, promote well-planned activities to foster moral growth, and introduce girls to public institutions and services, all while respecting outside influences thought to be harmful. The school strives to ensure pupils develop an understanding and respect for people of other cultures.

Despite its many strengths, the school is advised to make its complaints procedures, which meet almost all new regulations, more widely available to parents and prospective parents. As of its latest inspection, there were 1,311 pupils in attendance.
