Message from Mr Yusuf Seedat

The Head Teacher of Islamiyah Girls High School

Hope you are in the best of health.

It is a privilege to be the Head teacher of Islamiyah Girls High School.  It is an honour to take Islamiyah forward in the direction of raising achievement and attainment, without compromising on the Islamic ethos of the school.  Alhamdulillah, Islamiyah School is making steady progress.  Becoming a non-selective school has opened the doors to the wider community.  We have been recognised for our hard work and the support for producer organisations and their networks by being awarded Fair Trade status and the GOLD Beacon Award.  This comes from the collaborative work of pupils, the staff, parents, governors of the IGHS and well-wishers written in the community.

I believe a child’s education and tarbiyah is not a dress rehearsal; they only get one chance.  Each individual is nurtured and shaped by the values of the Islamic Faith and is given an opportunity to achieve her full potential and to develop a passion for life and for learning on which the Ofsted inspectors commented that “the school meets its aim successfully‘’.

In March 2013, Alhumdullilah, I was the recipient of the prestigious award of Transformational Leader by the AMS UK (Association of Muslim Schools).  I was also nominated at the British Muslim Awards for Services to Education in January 2014.

We thank all of our teaching and non-teaching staff, volunteers, governors, management and more importantly our pupils and their parents for their hard work and support in making Islamiyah School a success.  May the Almighty accept everyone’s effort for His cause.

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.
