This stage entails:

  1. An entrance examination to assess the student’s ability
  2. An interview in front of a panel consisting of the Madrasah, School and Boarding Heads. Parents will also be interviewed separately.
  3. A short induction presentation for both students and parents outlining our expectations at Abrar Academy/Darul Uloom Preston.
  4. A tour of our learning and boarding facilities.

You will be informed if your child is to be offered a conditional place, within one month of the interview by the email address supplied on the admission form. Those who are unsuccessful in acquiring a place may be placed on a waiting list should a spot become available.

Please take consideration not to take any photographs of the Academy whilst on the tour.

STAGE 3: Offer of a Place & Acceptance of Offer

If your child is accepted he will be offered a conditional place in the Academy and the offer must be accepted within the time given (typically two weeks). The conditional offer will become unconditional once you have agreed to the contract with the school and paid the requisite admission fee (£200), again within the time given (typically within one week of accepting the offer).

STAGE 4: Provision of Information Required for Enrolment

Towards the end of the third Term you will be sent several documents including the Home/School Agreement and a selection of school policies for your information. Please take time to read our Parental Contract. You will also be required to provide the following:

  • Your child’s SATs scores (if in Year 6) or latest examination report (if already in secondary school).
  • Your child’s comprehensive medical history

Failure to provide the above documents may affect your child’s enrolment.

STAGE 5: Enrolment

This is the final stage of your child’s admission into Abrar Academy and will be at a given date in September. Please ensure to read the term dates and all other relevant documents beforehand as this will enable a smooth transition from your child’s current environment into the environment of Abrar إن شاء الله.

Abu Hurayrah (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:

“When a man dies, his acts come to an end but three; recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased).”

(Muslim #1631)
