Students aged 4 and upwards, from many diverse backgrounds, attend Al Barakah School.

Classes 1-10

Al Barakah is mostly a two or three form entry school. Classes 1-10 accommodate children aged 4-16 years old.

Students are generally taught together as a class or in small groups; pair work is encouraged. At Al Barakah, teachers use differentiation in lessons to accommodate pupils so that they all have the best possible opportunity for learning.

In Classes 7-10, boys and girls are accommodated in gender appropriate classrooms to facilitate learning within an Islamic environment.

Many of our students join the school in Class 1 and stay until Class 11.

Class 11

Our Class 11 caters for students aged 15-18 years old. We have a unique course for them called ‘Islam, Science and Contemporary Issues’.

In this course, students look at Science and creation from an Islamic perspective; they learn about Biology and Physics in Islam, Oceanology and other Science related topics from the Qur’an. Part of the course also discusses comparative religions and current topics which help students to become confident and aware individuals. Students in Class 11 also have the opportunity to attend a Qur’an lesson to learn tajweed rules and improve their Qur’an recitation.
