Assalamu Alykum

Dear Parents

Welcome to another Academic year at the Arabic School. Alhamdulillah our recent move to RGS will be the start of another exciting phase of our project. The new and bigger facilities will allow us to further develop and plan for the future, Inshallah.

This is a big year for some of our students, who will be sitting their Arabic GCSE exams....make dua.

They have a lot to live up to, in the past some of our pupils have secured grade A’s whilst still in primary school!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their continued support and to encourage them to take an active role in their childrens’ Islamic education.
