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).
