Abrar Academy is now a member of the Independent Schools Association and is inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate. The ISI have two types of inspection, Regulatory Compliance and Educational Quality.

September 2021

Abrar was subject to a Regulatory Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection in September 2021, which judges the school on its compliance with the National Minimum Standards for Boarding and the quality of education provided according to the Independent School Standards.

Alhamdulillah, the inspection outlined the efforts we make to produce well rounded individuals who contribute to society. We thank all our staff for their commitment, hard work and genuine concern for the welfare of all our pupils. We would like to praise our children for the very positive way in which they conduct themselves and we would also like to thank you as parents for your contributions and sincere Duas for the success of the Academy.

May 2022

Abrar Academy has recently had a Regulatory Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). This inspection took place between 21 and 24 September 2021. Based on the result of this inspection we had a follow up unannounced Progress Monitoring Visit by ISI on the 18th of May 2022.

Alhamdulillah, we have received the report from the ISI. Please click here to access the report. The report outlines the efforts Abrar Academy is making to produce well rounded individuals who contribute to society. A few of their key findings are:

  • Satisfactory schemes of work cover all subjects apart from Arabic and Urdu. Increased curriculum resourcing has resulted in a satisfactory programme of lessons. Scrutiny of a range of pupils’ work books and schemes of work as well as lesson observations confirms this is the case.
  • Much work has been undertaken to improve teaching methods including training provided by external consultants. Teaching now demonstrates good subject knowledge and understanding of relevant subject areas. It is supported by adequate resources including the effective use of newly installed interactive screens in every classroom. Pupils in discussion said they now find lessons more interesting. Inspection evidence shows that they are suitably motivated and engaged in lessons and have increased opportunities to think and learn for themselves.
  • The school has produced an adequate curriculum policy which is implemented effectively to provide pupils with a suitable curriculum covering all required areas. This now includes art and religious studies in Years 7 to 9 with appropriate technological study for pupils in Years 7 to 11.
