JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Jewishs school in Gravesend? #unitedkingdom

I have been researching my Aarons family lately and have found the following
family in the 1871 census, who I believe are related to me:

109 Leman Street, Whitechapel, 1871
Perry Aarons Head 42 Cigar Dealer b.Vauxhall
Rachel " Wife 47 Greenwich
Mary " Dau. 15 Liverpool
Henry " Son 14 Gravesend, Essex
John " " 12 Whitechapel
Rachel " Dau. 10 "
Perry " Son 9 "
Louis " " 8 St. Georges
Joseph " " 7 Whitechapel

I was intrigued by the reference to Gravesend and when I did a search of the
1871 census I came up with what looks like a Jewish school in Milton,
Gravesend, Kent:

Perry Aarons abt 1861 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Jacob Bamberger abt 1860 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Emmanuel Berg abt 1860 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Joseph Bernstein abt 1861 Dowlais, Wales Pupil Milton Kent
Lewis Bernstine abt 1860 Donbail, Wales Pupil Milton Kent
Benjamin Blasberg abt 1859 Cardiff, Wales Pupil Milton Kent
Emmanuel Cohen abt 1860 Liverpool, Lancashire, England Pupil Milton Kent
Davie Davis abt 1860 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Henry Harris abt 1861 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
David W Lyons abt 1859 Cardiff, Wales Pupil Milton Kent
Lewis Marks abt 1861 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Simon Marks abt 1859 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Joseph Prag abt 1860 Liverpool, Lancashire, England Pupil Milton Kent
Harvey H Salamon abt 1860 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent
Harry Say abt 1860 London, Middlesex, England Pupil Milton Kent

(The same Perry Aarons seems to appear in two places on the census). On the
next page the names of the staff are given.
It is interesting that all these boys were a similar age.

Does anyone know anything about this school, or a Jewish community in this
area at this time?
