School Description

Ummul Mumineen Academy is an independent day school educating girls from the age of 8 to 16 years, situated near the centre of Cardiff. The school has its origins in Ummul Mumineen Girls’ Centre, which was opened in 2007 to support home education for girls. The school opened in 2016 and is registered as a Community Interest Company. There are currently 40 pupils in the school. This includes eight pupils in the primary phase and 32 pupils in the secondary phase. Pupils are mostly from the local area in Cardiff. Currently, in the primary phase there are two classes, a discrete Year 4 class and a joint Year 5 and 6 class. In the secondary phase there are discrete Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 classes and a joint Year 10 and Year 11 class. Almost all pupils come from minority ethnic groups including Arab, Pakistani, Somali and West Indian. A few pupils speak English as an additional language. No pupils speak Welsh as a first language and the school does not aim to make pupils bilingual in English and Welsh. There are no pupils with a statement of special educational needs. The school is non-selective, and entry is based upon the school’s ability to meet the needs of the pupil. It provides an education with a Muslim ethos and a curriculum that includes the teaching of Arabic, the Qur’an and Islamic Studies. The school’s motto is ‘Learn, Enhance, Achieve’. The headteacher has been in post since the school opened in 2016.
