About Us

History of the School

Islamiyah School was established in 2000 due to demand from the local community. It was started with just 20 girls in Year 7. The School made progress quickly and met all the requirements set down by HM Inspector and the School was approved and registered by the Department for Education and Skills in February 2003. In our  OFSTED inspection in November 2014 we improved our rating for the quality of our education from ‘good’ to ‘good with outstanding features’. In our most recent OFSTED inspection in July 2018 we have been rated outstanding in all areas.


The school is exceptionally successful in achieving its aim of ‘Offering a broad and balanced curriculum alongside a positive understanding of Islam, to equip every pupil with skills to be a successful learner, confident individual and responsible British citizen.’ Ofsted 2018


“Leaders are highly ambitious for the school and its pupils. They have ensured that the quality of education that the school provides has improved strongly since the last inspection, so it is now outstanding in all areas”
