Sending my daughter to this school was the best decision I have made. She has learnt so much and the school has left such a positive impact on her future. She has become a better person with better character. Her studies also have gone well as she has received good results in her GCSE’S and her A level. I am happy that I sent my daughter here and I am very satisfied with everything. I will advise other parents to send their daughter's to this school.

Having been a student at jaamiatul imaam, and now many years on I think it is a great school. The pastoral care was outstanding, the teaching was of a high standard and students were encouraged to reach their full potential, unlike other schools I have attended where less able students or those with behavioural issues weren't challenged or became simply a background disturbance. standards for behaviour are high as with most boarding establishments and behavioural concerns are discussed with parents and targets set. overall a very good school situated in a beautiful location.

This school is excellent in all aspects including education and boarding. I myself studied there and have relatives and family friends currently studying there and cannot say that I have ever heard of a single flaw in the way the school is run nor in anything else. The teachers are very considerate and approachable bringing themselves down to the students level at all time and the students are very friendly and welcoming. The headteacher is wonderful! Both the headteacher and principal work extremely hard to fulfill need of all students.An excellent college for islamic and secular education. Thank you to all teachers for their hard work!

Jaamiatul imaam muhammad zakaria is a great school. It provides great islamic morals and values to each individual. I would definitely recommend it to other muslim parents to send their daughters.

Experience of a lifetime

Just want to firstly thank all the staff and especially the headteacher for the 5 wonderful years i boarded at this school. I have lovely memories from living here and wish i could go back and be a student for a while. The staff were always so lovely and the environment was always so lively and exciting. Actually, when it came to holidays i didn't feel like going home. The best part of staying there was the incomparable and outstanding teaching.of course, the meals were also my favourite especially the Saturday chips and Saturday haleem curry.

As a former graduate of this institute, it is with immense pleasure that i can positively comment on the high standard and impeccable level of education received by the teaching staff, efficiently and effectively led under the guidance of the Head Teacher. Combined with the excellent boarding facilitites, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and welfare promoted and the excellent pastoral care I received as a student, studying at Jaamiatul Imaam Muhammad Zakaria has equipped me with lifelong learning skills, motivation and commitment required to further my academic studies at post-graduate and doctorate level, instilling within me the value of positively contributing to the wider british society.

Speaking as a former student, it is undeniable that my years spent here helped shaped me into who I am today. Integrity, fairness, tolerance, commitment and equality were not just taught in the Academic sense, but imparted through the exemplary staff in their dealings with students, other staff members and the public alike. The endeavours of the teaching staff coupled with their support and encouragement, instilled within me a deep love of learning and a lifelong ideology that hard work will always pay off. Years later, despite being surrounded by sincere friends and family who have a plethora of life and professional experience, I find myself seeking counsel and guidance from my old teachers, valuing their genuine and invaluable advice. The school provided me with a wealth of wonderful and fond memories that will always be cherished.

This school is an excellent school offering the best for our child. My daughter studied here and now i realize the rumours about this school being the top of the range is one hundred percent true. They bought the best out of her. The accommodation is excellent along with the food. They make their food fresh everyday with fresh fruits and salad alongside every meal. The education is excellent making my daughter achieve results that i dont think any other school could do. Teachers are like mothers taking care of my daughter as if she was one of theres. I put my trust in this school to look after my child and so could you. I have a guarantee on that.

Jamia Tul Imam Muhammed Zakaria is an independent school for girls and is far by the best school for girls as it has helped me to gain so much in my life after attending this school. I have also achieved great results academically and also in islamic studies. It is a united school where everyone is helpful and makes you feel part of the family. This institution has made me a better person and has helped me to establish my achievements in all aspects of life. I recommend this school to all muslim girls as it will help you to choose the right way of life. Most of all thank you to the school and all of its members for helping me achieve the best of education.
