    Muslim schools dominate league table for most academic progress in England

    https://5pillarsuk.com/2019/10/18/mu...ss-in-england/

    New government statistics have revealed that eight of the top 20 schools in England for academic progress are Muslim schools.

    Top of the list is Tauheedul Islam Girls’ School (TIGHS) in Blackburn which scored highest in the country in the “Progress 8” metric which measures the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school.

    A Progress 8 score of 1.0 means pupils made, on average, a grade more progress than the national average. Tauheedul Islam scored a remarkable 2.17.

    83% of students at the school achieved a “strong pass” in English and Maths, while 65% achieved the English Baccalaureate.

    TIGHS is also ranked one of the highest in the country for results by students with low prior achievement at primary school. 50% of students with low prior achievement achieved a “standard pass” in English and Maths at TIGHS. Nationally, only 11% of such students achieve this result.

    Government figures also reported that TIGHS is one of the best schools in the country for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, those living in low-income households or who are in care. Over four-fifths of students from disadvantaged backgrounds achieved a “strong pass” in English and Maths at TIGHS. Nationally, only a quarter of such students achieve this result.

    Mufti Hamid Patel, Chief Executive of Star Academies which runs the school, said: “Despite harder exams, our amazing students have worked really hard to achieve life-changing outcomes. They owe a lot to their devoted parents and our fantastic teachers and support staff.

    “However, it is not just about excellent grades. We are also proud that our young women have developed good character, are informed and responsible citizens and have a commitment to serving their communities passionately.”

    The other Muslim schools to make the top 20 list were:

    Eden Boys’ School in Birmingham
    Eden Girls’ School in Coventry
    Preston Muslim Girls’ High School
    Eden Girls’ School in Waltham Forest
    Eden Girls’ School in Slough
    Bolton Muslim Girls’ School
    Al-Hijrah School in Birmingham

    Tahir Alam, from the Muslim Parents’ Association, told 5Pillars that the results show that when state schools take into account the religious and cultural needs of their pupils they will thrive.

    He said: “If children really feel that they belong in a school and that they are recognised and valued then they will produce children who are confident in their own skins and who will be an asset to their school, community and country.

    “Perhaps schools in Birmingham with large Muslim intakes which are underachieving could learn something from these top rated schools in terms of creating an ethos in which children can thrive.”

    It doesn't surprise me at all.

    Proper Islamic schools would focus on discipline and wouldn't tolerate any nonsense.

    Well done.

    All UK schools have to follow the syllabus set by the education authority. A lot of stuff is taught which people dont believe in.

    First of all, schools are not just about evolution and geology. There are other subjects (mathematics, literature, chemistry, physics, gym etc.).

    Geology? What do you mean? I don't know why you added geology.

    Regarding evolution, it is fine to learn about it but you are free not to believe it.

    There is an Islamic school in my city and it does very well province-wide. They are fully accredited.

    You seem to have negative perception about religious schools.

    A real slap in the face to @Mamoon , who not so long ago attributed the Islamic Golden Age merely due to the contributions made by non-orthodox Muslims. There have been other comments made by him, where he has insinuated that orthodox Islam acts as barrier for the so-called typical Muslims to flourish academically.

    Doing well in GCSEs is equivalent to scientific contributions? People do well in GCSEs in Pakistan as well. I also had A* in Biology and Physics, and now I am a doctor. What contribution have I made apart from benefiting from other’s work?

    What contribution has the Pakistani society as a whole made to the world of science? We have only produce one Nobel laureate in Physics and he has been shamed for his religious beliefs and the state have tried their best to discredit his achievements.

    It is an indisputable fact that the orthodox Muslims are lagging behind atheists and Jews when it comes to scientific contributions.

    When it's a competition among schools to get recognition, there will be malpractice that will occur. Thats why I don't believe such ratings should exist. It creates more issues than solving anything.

    Good news. Proves they are not making radicals like the media often tells us. These girls are really seeking knowledge like Islam teaches us. There will always be people who discredit any positive news amongst the Muslim community as seen in the above posts. Muslim schools mostly cover every subject that mainstream schools do. It is not about talking Islam all day long like many seem to think.
