Independent School in Gloucester

On behalf of the school governing body, the staff, and our entire school family, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Al-Ashraf Primary School, part of a family of schools run under the proprietorship of Al-Madani Educational Trust (Registered Charity No. 1134963).

Situated in the heart of Gloucester, our Islamic primary school began as a humble community project with a single class in 2006. By the will of Allah (SWT), it has now grown into a fully-fledged nursery and school, catering for children aged between 2-11, alhamdulillah. We pride ourselves on providing a world-class education which serves a moral purpose. Our aim is to help nurture truly incredible young people by supporting them Islamically, morally, and academically, to become their very best, so that they may flourish into strong Muslim individuals; individuals who will benefit our community and our wider society. Together with this, we also aim to provide an environment where children feel happy, secure and safe.

The school continues to go from strength to strength, which is reflected in the high levels of attainment of our children. Our ambitious curriculum is designed around our school values whereby our children are nurtured to become creative, critical and contributing Muslim citizens. We have recently invested in development opportunities for our staff to create a school driven by research, collaboration and partnerships with other schools so that we remain innovative and make the best decisions for our children. We also take pride on our close partnership with parents and the community which yields the very best developmental opportunities for our school.

Over and above our academic provision, we take pride in our safe, caring, moral and spiritual environment wherein pupils are nurtured to develop good AKHLAQ (morals & manners) based on the noble teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sall-Allahu alaihi wa sallam), which are represented in our school values:


We hope that by embedding these qualities into our children across the school, we create children with Firm Roots, Branches in the Sky, insha-Allah. We are confident, with Allah’s help and mercy, the school will continue to flourish and succeed in its aims, insha-Allah.

Rabbana Taqabbal Minna Innaka Antas Samee-ul-Aleem.

O our Lord, accept from us for You are the all-hearing, all-knowing. (Holy Qur’an)

Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Al-Ashraf Primary School.
