A SCHOOL THAT IS PASSIONATE ABOUT LEARNING, AIMING TO NURTURE INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY, AND DEDICATED TO PROVIDING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Al-Burhan opened its doors in September 2002 in a small five-roomed house with one overarching aim: to make a difference to the upbringing of children, better their educational prospects and help them succeed in all aspects of their lives.
Since then, Al-Burhan has successfully built up a record of helping each pupil to fulfil their potential and achieve their best.
Pupils follow an ambitious and rich curriculum, gaining deep knowledge and understanding in a wide range of subjects. Staff are passionate about learning and seek to ensure that pupils become lifelong learners. They are keen to equip pupils not only with knowledge to pass exams, but with understanding and transferable life skills which will help them to be successful in their personal lives and careers.
The deep culture of learning and strong work ethos helps students make excellent progress. As a consequence, pupils have very positive attitudes to learning and have high aspirations. AI Burhan has consistently been graded “Outstanding” by Ofsted for the quality of education. An excellent GCSE record has been maintained over the years, with more than half of all grades achieved by pupils in summer 2022 being Grades 7-9 and a consistent pass rate of 100%.
Beyond educational achievement, Al-Burhan has an equal if not greater focus on supporting pupils’ personal growth and development. An emphasis on personal responsibility and self-reflection enables girls to develop self-discipline and a sense of justice, fairness and equality.
Consistently rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted with regard to pupil’s personal development, welfare and behaviour, they noted that “behaviour is exemplary”, “pupils are considerate and respectful”, “bullying is rare” and that pupils look out for each other.
The school is always forward-looking, proactively looking for ways to further improve the school experience and education quality for their pupils, and they try to instil this proactive and positive attitude in their pupils. The next exciting development is a building project to expand the school facilities, including a purpose-built sports hall.
