headteachers welcome

I would like to begin by extending a very warm welcome to our prospective parents and guardians, children and visitors.

Unique Academy is an Independent Islamic school which provides a calm, purposeful and safe Islamic environment for children from the age of 2 through to 11 years old.

Our school was born out of a clear vision to provide young children with a holistic education which serves the core purpose of nourishing their fitrah (natural disposition), taqwa (God consciousness) and Eemaan (faith) in line with the statement of our Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, which mentions,

Every child is born upon the fitrah….” (Saheeh Bukhari, 1292)


We emphasise on nourishing the fitrah, as we understand the relationship between the spiritual, inner developmental psychology of each unique child and the impact that this can have on their mental well being and thus outward character and behaviour. This is also recognised in another hadeeth of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, which mentions,

Verily, in the body is a piece of flesh which, if it is good, the entire body is good…truly, it is the heart(Saheeh Bukhari, 52)


In light of this, we have developed a broad and balanced creative curriculum, which amalgamates Islamic education subject disciplines (Qur’aan, Arabic and Halaqah) and academic subject disciplines, in the form of 7 areas of learning in the early years and 12 National Curriculum subjects in Key Stage 1and 2, which are designed and delivered in a manner which fosters the holistic (all round/inner and outer) development of each child’s knowledge, skills and understanding as they progress through each year group.

The indoor activities and outdoor Forest School learning experiences as well as the wider concepts, skills set, universal values, principles and morals that we nourish , will help to develop children’s resilience as they embark on their learning journey and navigate life’s tests, striving to succeed, not only in this life also in the Hereafter, God Willing.

Unique Academy is a school where each unique child is valued and supported to learn, explore and achieve in order to reach their individual potential.

You are welcome to contact us if you would like to visit the school, meet our fantastic team, get to know more about our unique education and take a glimpse at the Islamic environment that we provide for our pupils.

We look forward to meeting you!

What Ofsted have said:

“The quality of the school’s work to develop pupils’ personal and social skills is strong. The curriculum helps to promote pupils’ spiritual and cultural awareness.”

Ofsted Inspection – May 2022


“Leaders are ambitious in their aims for the quality of education in the early years and key stage 1……. Leaders’ vision is based on the idea that pupils will develop the knowledge and skills they need to positively influence their own lives and the lives of others.”

Ofsted Inspection – February 2021


Alhamdulillah, we are truly blessed to have our child attend Unique Academy, where the pursuit of knowledge is harmoniously blended with strong Islamic values. We appreciate the efforts taken by each teacher not only to instill in our children the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) but also to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. The inclusion of physical activities in the curriculum not only benefits their physical health but also nurtures their social skills and teamwork.

" Dear Amina, It is with great pleasure that we accept this place for my son. I would like to take this opportunity to thank sister Hawwa and all you lovely sisters for making us feel very welcome and taking the time to meet me and my family. May Allah reward all of you for what you have accomplished and make this school a successful establishment for the future of our children. Jazakumullaahu khairan."
