Vision & Mission

History of the School

Islamiyah School was established in 2000 due to demand from the local community. It started with just 20 girls in Year 7. The School made progress quickly and met all the requirements set down by HM Inspectors 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.

Our Mission

Islamiyah School Mission Statement

Providing educational excellence in an Islamic environment to inspire, nurture and enable our young British citizens to serve and positively contribute to society as a whole.

Our Ethos

The ethos of the school is one of equality of opportunities for young British Muslim girls enabling them to understand and become integrated into, rather than isolated from, British society of which they are members.

Our Vision & Aims :

  • Offer 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 a responsible British citizen.
  • Provide pupils with a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment, which develops their intellect and talents as independent learners, giving pupils the confidence to believe that their aspirations are achievable.
  • Encourage and enable each pupil to develop moral integrity, a sense of social responsibility and respect for themselves and others.
  • Build upon our partnership with parents, pupils, staff, Governors and other stakeholders and strengthen and extend collaborative links with the wider community.
