Welcome


Jamiatul Ummah is a highly successful independent secondary school for boys which excels in combining National Curriculum and Islamic learning. We equip pupils with knowledge and skills to become not only good Muslims, but also good citizens of modern, multi-cultural Britain. Our school’s mission is to ‘Behave Well; Achieve Well and Become Great”. With that goal in mind, we nurture, educate and inspire our pupils to become practicing Muslims while gaining the right qualifications to succeed in any academic environment.

We inculcate traditional values of hard work, discipline and respect while ensuring our pupils are prepared to participate fully in modern society with the right qualifications, skills and attitudes. We are proud of our track record.
