Background to the Academy
Avicenna Academy is an ambitious and broad Islamic Educational Organisation, whose projects span all facets of Tarbiya (Education and Nurturing). In the field of Islamic Sciences Avicenna Academy is unashamedly lauding and teaching the Theological school of the Maturidis and the Jurisprudence of the Hanafis. By the permission of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), in keeping with the principal motto of Avicenna Academy of Purity, Authenticity and Wisdom, sacred knowledge is and will only be taught by teachers with Isnaad and Ijazah linking them to the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم).
Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) permitting we have many long term aims and plans of action, which exist only for the Pleasure of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), such as building an infrastructure of revival and enlightenment for the Citizens of this World. And as for the Hereafter then it is for those closest to the Merciful One (سبحانه و تعالى) and His Beloved (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم)
Our School Ethos
Avicenna Academy incorporates primary and secondary school education in one establishment. It is the first academy to revive the teaching of forgotten or neglected sciences such as Herbal Medicine and Islamic Creed (Aqeedah).
We hold a broad, open-minded view and approach to knowledge and therefore Avicenna Academy provides a holistic education fit for the challenges of the 21st century. By the Grace of Allah (سبحانه و تعالى), we teach our students English, Mathematics, Logic, Grammar, Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), Empirical Sciences, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Arts & Design Technologies (DT) and Islamic Sciences. We believe that standards should be high and therefore our teachers are thoroughly vetted for their competence in their respective field. To give our students the edge over the rest we will infuse our curriculum with ample opportunities to foster and nurture creativity and practicality, among other skills, in all students.
We are grateful to Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) that our 2014 and 2018 OFSTED reports shows us as a Good school throughout:
