What the parents say...

My niece went to this school for 3 years, unfortunately she left as she suffered from anxiety attacks. The school showed no empathy towards her and didn't even ask if she was ok or if there was a way they could help. Her personal belongings were dumped in black bags and she wasn't allowed to say bye to her friends. Her form tutor did not even ask her if she was ok or wished her well for the future. Through the three years my niece worked very hard and never complained about school. Her school report was clearly copied and pasted as it contained other girls name in unexpected behaviour of my niece. The concept of the Jamea is good however rules such as no chocolate and no fried food is silly as the school then sells their chocolate to the girls. The girls are also asked to clean and each have duties -bleach and other products are used. If the students are ill they are sent med camp where they sit on their own. When you call the teachers they speak very rudely and not helpful at all. My brother tried to ring the headteacher/teachers to make an appointment regarding GCSE subjects but was never contacted. The girls do not have spare time to learn and yet are constantly asked to revise. Oh the girls use a pay phone to contact parents there are huge queues and girls have to rush to speak to family. My niece enjoyed going to the school and would have continued had she not had those panic/anxiety attacks. I think the school needs to review their Rules and regulations and put the needs of the girls first. It is a lot of pressure for the girls with constant education of school and madressa and those additional issues do not help.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
