School Description

Darul Uloom is an independent residential educational institution for Muslim boys set in a rural location within a few miles of Bury town centre. The school is registered for pupils and students in the age range 11 to 23 years. There are currently 317 pupils on roll, 77 of whom are in the sixth form. Two hundred of these pupils also board at the school. One hundred and one students are over the age of 19, Inspection report: Darul Uloom Al Arabiya Al Islamiya, 13–15 March 2018 Page 10 of 13 and are completing advanced Islamic studies. The provision and outcomes for this group were not within the remit for this inspection. The school offers a secondary secular and further education, as well as advanced Islamic education to Islamic scholar (alim) standard. The school aims to ‘promote the welfare of young Muslims and to give students a practical and more successful understanding of their religious and social rights and responsibilities in society’, and to ‘allow students to develop their spiritual and moral individuality so that they become true models of Islam, as well as respecting the individuality of others and other cultures and faiths’. The school received a full inspection on 4 November 2014, at which all aspects of the school’s work were judged outstanding. In January 2016, an emergency no-notice inspection was carried out following a number of complaints received by the registration authority in relation to the school and to the quality of residential care. The vast majority of the concerns raised by the complainants were not substantiated. However, during that visit, some independent school standards and national minimum standards for boarding schools were judged to be unmet. The school received a no-notice, progress monitoring inspection, on 23 November 2016, to check the progress of its work towards meeting the identified unmet standards. The school does not use any alternative provision.
