A word from the Principal
“Welcome to Jamea Al Kauthar, established in 1996, we are one of the UK’s best Islamic Secondary Schools for Girls. We have a proud reputation for providing academic excellence, consistently highly ranked in the league tables for secular education, and globally recognized for delivering a world class level of comprehensive Islamic education. Due to these high standards and achievements, demand for places is highly competitive.
Jamea Al Kauthar’s graduates not only perform well in the school, they take with them the high moral and ethical values, principles and standards where ever they go and work, within their own communities. We are committed to providing learning opportunities which enable students to fulfil their potential in all aspects of life – academic, cultural, moral, spiritual and family life etc.
The secondary school places great emphasis on providing an excellent environment that is conducive to learning whilst catering for a culturally and ethnically diverse student population from all corners of the globe. Students are challenged to pursue excellence in a family-like environment. The welfare of the student is paramount and of the highest priority. An extensive pastoral care system ensures that students are treated as important individuals. We are constantly working hard to improve and provide state of the art facilities to deliver an excellent student experience.
This is all provided on a friendly campus in the heart of Lancaster, which is situated on one of the safest cities in the UK and also famous for exceptional Schools, Colleges and Universities. A Victorian four storey, grade II listed building, similar in architecture to Oxford University forms the boarding wings with extensive, safe and secure accommodation. The Madrasah and School are situated in two separate buildings, all surrounded by 20.5 acres of beautiful natural grounds giving a serene setting to relax and enhance the mind and body.
As we move towards celebrating the School’s 20th anniversary in 2016 we will aim to inspire our graduates further by endeavouring to extend the opportunities to include Higher Education (degree courses) in collaboration with other Universities.”
