"Whoever amongst you sees an evil, he must change it with his hand; if he is unable to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is unable to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith." (Muslim)
For the second time in six months, the Mail on Sunday has published an article which is believed to be an attack on the reputation of Al-Aqsa School, Leicester, and its management, especially the chair of trustees, Ibrahim Hewitt. From the very beginning, the trustees note that the article has been written in a derogatory and inflammatory tone, using language which is both inaccurate and unreasonable. They wish to reassure parents and supporters of the school, as well as local and national authorities such as the Charity Commission and Department for Education, that the management and staff at Al-Aqsa are committed to delivering a full and balanced curriculum in line with the laws and regulations governing independent schools in Britain.
Founded in 1998, Al-Aqsa is a full-time, non-selective school for children aged 3 – 13 (and planning to go to 16 years old, insha’Allah). We offer a broad and balanced holistic curriculum that integrates Islamic perspectives throughout all academic subject areas, with a focus on the Qur'an and character development. Our curriculum places an emphasis on personalised learning. Pupils of all ages are challenged to do their personal best and guided to become independent, creative learners.
