I would like to welcome you to Al Islah Girls’ High School, a popular and highly regarded non-selective high school for girls, underpinned by its Islamic ethos. Having proudly served the local community for many years, we combine traditional values with a forward-looking and a vibrant learning environment. Where young people are nurtured to become considerate, confident and well-rounded individuals. We have created an environment where expectations are high, ambitions are great, and values are deeply rooted; where girls grow in confidence and are able to pursue their dreams.
‘Enthusiasm’, ‘maturity’ and ‘courtesy’ are words that very frequently feature in the observations of visitors to the school. This school is an environment which gives people – staff as much as students – the space to be themselves and the encouragement and stimulus to grow, to learn, to engage with complexity and to achieve their goals, while also making time for friendship, for laughter and for living life to the full.
Our approach to academic study is varied, disciplined and fosters a life-long love of learning. We value our school, the community we serve, and celebrate diversity. As a result, our young people are able to make informed and positive life choices. They are equipped to face the challenges of a fast-changing and competitive world. We are proud of our track record of strong examination results and the strength of our careers education, advice and guidance.
I hope this website will give you a glimpse into what makes Al Islah Girls’ High School a special place to be. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be the Headteacher here.
