School Description

Al-Risalah Secondary School is an independent Muslim day school run by the Al-Risalah Education Trust. The school has a Nursery section for children aged 3 to 5. The secondary phase is for pupils aged 11 to 16. The secondary phase is located in a converted cinema, and the nursery is housed in a renovated residential building, 10 minutes’ walk from the secondary school. Pupils use a local leisure facility for physical education and enrichment. The school’s last standard inspection took place in December 2015, when the school was judged to be good. Inspection report: Al Risalah Secondary School, 19–21 March 2019 Page 8 of 12 The school operates a policy of segregation by sex in the secondary school. The boys’ department is located on the opposite side of the building to the girls. Boys and girls arrive to, and depart from, the school at different times. Pupils are segregated for classes and all other activities. The policy causes the following detriment to pupils: boys and girls cannot learn and socialise together. Given this detriment, the policy constitutes direct discrimination, contrary to the Equality Act 2010. Leaders intend to de-amalgamate the departments into separate schools. They intend to do this by summer 2019. At the time of the inspection, leaders had started the formal process of de-amalgamation. A separate inspection, commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE), for the registration of the boys’ school took place at the same time as this inspection. In addition, the DfE requested that an application for a material change to the numbers in the girls’ school and Nursery be considered as part of this inspection. The school does not use alternative provision.
