Welcome to Al-Ashraf Secondary School for Girls (formerly Gloucestershire Islamic Secondary School), established in 1994 by the Gloucester Muslim Welfare Association Ltd and now under the proprietorship of Al-Madani Educational Trust. (Registered Charity No. 1134963) 

Since its establishment in 1994 with two classes (Year’s 7 & 8), Al-Ashraf Secondary School for Girls has developed into a successful secondary school providing a high standard of secular and Islamic education. Our GCSE results have continued to improve over the years and are well above national averages. 

Our staff work tirelessly to raise standards ensuring that all students work to their true potential. Students are assessed regularly through homework, class tests and internal exams. At the end of Year 11, students have an opportunity to gain eleven GCSE passes.

In addition to our academic provision, we take pride in our safe, caring and moral & spiritual environment where pupils are nurtured to develop good Akhlaaq (morals & manners) based on the noble teachings ofour beloved Prophet, Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

Poverty Awareness

From April 27th - May 1st, Al-Ashraf Secondary School for Girls will be getting behind an poverty awareness campaign as teachers and pupils commit to Live Below The Line and feed themselves with just £1 a day for 5 days - the UK equivalent of the international extreme poverty line.

The school will be raising funds for the MADE in Europe charity. MADE in Europe is a Muslim-led movement of young people who want to see our community leading the fight against global poverty and injustice.  Inspired by the Qur’anic teaching “Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change themselves” (13:11), MADE in Europe’s aim is to support Muslim communities be at the forefront of the global poverty debate, challenging global norms and becoming leaders of social change.

Live Below The Line is an awareness and fundraising campaign designed to help people understand the challenges faced by those currently living in extreme poverty.

To take part in this unique challenge, sign up on the Live Below The Line website -www.livebelowtheline.org/uk

You can also sponsor the school team at https://www.livebelowtheline.com/team/al-ashraf-secondary-school-2015
