Al-Burhan Grammar has successfully built up a reputation for excellent academic achievement, delivering both the standard national curriculum as well as aspects of Islamic education.
Al-Burhan was graded “Outstanding” by Ofsted for the third time in March 2018.
Beginning in a small two-bedroom house with only eight students, the school has grown rapidly in the last sixteen years and now has more than a hundred students.
Relocating in February 2013 to a new campus in Tyseley, this independent school has developed into a successful institution.
But they have never lost sight of the original aims and goals: to educate the next generation, to nurture them to become active members of society and responsible members of the community, and to instil in them a love of learning which will carry them through life.
Academically outstanding A spokesman said: “We try to inspire a love of learning in our girls and a desire to succeed and constantly better themselves academically. Developing a proactive and positive attitude to learning is a key aim.”
Education provision is based around the national curriculum, along with aspects of Islamic education.
This results in girls having a good grounding in wide variety of standard subjects and this keeps options open for A-levels and beyond.
The broad and balanced curriculum provides pupils with rich learning experiences, which helps them to achieve academic excellence.
At the heart of the school are the leaders and staff.
All work together effectively and dedicatedly for the sole purpose of ensuring the success of the girls.
Ofsted inspectors praised the hard work and dedication of the staff.
Personal growth and development The spokesman added: “We understand that these girls are not simply students. They are future members of our
society. So we also aim to nurture skills which will stand our girls in good stead for life. We believe that a good and upstanding society is created by good and upstanding individuals.
“A warm supportive and caring family atmosphere exists within school, so pupils feel comfortable with each other and around teachers. We believe in a firm but fair approach and helping students learn from their mistakes. We feel the best way for you to witness this first-hand is to visit the school on a normal day. We look forward to meeting you.”
The entrance test for September 2019 entry will be on Saturday, December 1, 2018.
