We are proud to announce that Al-Madinah School officially opened its doors to Pupils on the of 3rd of September 2012. Over the coming weeks we will be developing our website, please be patient as our main priority is to make the opening of the School as smooth as possible for Pupils, Parents and of course our Staff.
Al-Madinah School is a brand new 4 -16 Muslim Faith School open to all and is based in Derby. The School was founded by the Al Madinah Education Trust. Al-Madinah School has opened at its temporary site – Norman House, Heritage Gate, Friary Street (Friar Gate), DE1 1NU, Derby
A strong Muslim ethos will give the school its uniqueness integrated with shorter holidays and longer school days to maximise opportunities for pupil achievement and success. At the centre of our school is a community of pupils, able to enjoy learning in a caring Islamic environment which promotes a culture of high expectations and outstanding performance.
One of Al-Madinah Schools’ strong characters is the schools extended services program in which pupils will learn independence, self-control, social skills and community conscientiousness. These skills are vital if our pupils are to become self-regulating teenagers and adults.
Pupil ‘attainment and achievement’ is at the heart of Al-Madinah Schools’ vision. We focus on outstanding teaching to promote outstanding learning coupled with a rigid assessment and monitoring program to identify progress levels of all pupils. This approach will help put into place individual educational development programs for each and every pupil.
One of Al-Madinah Schools’ distinct features is the offering of an Islamic Studies program, which will include Quran reading with pronunciations (Tajweed), translation of the Quran (Tafseer) and Quran memorisation (Hifz). We will also teach Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh), biography (Seerah) of the Prophet Mohammed (SAW), History of Islam, the Oneness of God (Tauheed) and Islamic Beliefs (Aqeedah). Daily prayers and weekly religious assemblies will also take place at the School. The Islamic studies program will have an ‘opt-out’ choice for parents who do not want their child(ren) to be part of it.
