Founder's Message

“Pupils here are kind, considerate and respectful... This is a school with a true community spirit. Pupils enjoy school life and thrive here.” Ofsted 2023

Assalamu Alaikum, Peace Be with You.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to Islamia Girls School.

Founded in 1989, our vision was to establish a school where students felt safe, cared for, and enjoyed learning. We sought to not only prepare our students for the academic assessments that lay ahead, but equally to take a holistic view of life and place emphasis on their spiritual and moral well-being. We hoped to encourage our students to appreciate the gift of life and behave as model exemplars of humanity, equipped with knowledge, wisdom and compassion. We believed then, as we do today, that to develop into well rounded individuals, each student must experience life beyond our walls and learn about the world around them. Appreciating difference and respecting one another has always been a central theme in the school. To this end, our students take part in interfaith programmes, sporting competitions, business challenges and debating contests with other schools across the country.

Ratings of 'Outstanding' for student behaviour & attitudes, as well as their personal development, and 'Good' for the quality of education and for leadership & management (Oftsed 2023) proves that we are achieving our mission to be an overall provider of excellent education and opportunities. It is our aim to nurture a society of forward-thinking, conscientious young Muslim women who contribute positively and valuably to our multi-faith, multi-cultural Britain and beyond.
