  • 23rd Wembley Sahabah Scouts

    23rd Wembley Sahabah Scouts has been a proud member of the world-wide family of Scouts since 2007 building upon a long tradition of scouting in Wembley. We are part of the Greenford District.

    Scouting’s Founder Baden-Powel described scouting as a Movement and central to the values of the Scouting Movement are the scouts promise and law:

    On my honour, I promise that I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and to my country,
    To help other people
    And to keep the Scout Law…

    A Scout is to be trusted.
    A Scout is loyal.
    A Scout is friendly and considerate.
    A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
    A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
    A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
    A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

    We aim to instil these characteristics in the scouts through outdoor pursuits and small group work, with a varied tailor made programme. Currently we are running weekend Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections. Please browse our pages and contact us at info@sahabascouts.org if you would like to sign up or volunteer your skills.

    Be prepared for life’s adventure!

  • Ark Academy

    Our aim is to ensure that all our pupils develop as high achieving, confident, articulate young people whose education fully equips them to go on to university or the career of their choice.

    We are delighted that within three months of opening in our brand new school Ark Academy was judged as outstanding by Ofsted. They stated:

    “A great deal of work has brought about a new school that has quickly established high expectations and secured impressive progress in the short period since opening. Pupils make outstanding progress in their studies.”

    We are very ambitious for all our pupils and believe that our emphasis on the study of subjects in depth through our extended day is a key feature of our success. At the end of each day we also enrich our offer with a wide variety of activities, from extra sports and specialist clubs to extended support for literacy, mathematics and science. We also spend a great deal of time ensuring that as teachers we are well prepared and continuously learning and enhancing how we teach in order to extend our students.

    We're very proud of our Case Studies, which detail some of this work. You can read or download them here. There is also a training film (along with other videos) which describes our approach to staff learning; it can been seen here.

    You will see our motto ‘Civitas’ everywhere around the school. We are first and foremost citizens and this is what binds us together. We want our students to grow into rounded, confident, ambitious young people who aspire to high achievement and will make a mark on the world.

    Ark Academy is not for the faint-hearted. We expect a great deal of hard work from our pupils. We know nothing worthwhile was ever achieved differently. We expect high standards from everyone and believe that the simple formula of “work hard, be nice” will ensure the best future for our pupils. To this end we are “compassionately ruthless” in implementing our standards and expect that parents will wish the same for their offspring.

    As the Founder Principal of Ark Academy I am conscious of the rare privilege and opportunity of opening and now expanding a brand new school. I also want to thank our ‘Founder Parents’ and pupils for the faith they have placed in our vision.

    We are now in our fifth year and our founder students in Year 11 are preparing for their GCSEs. Our founder primary pupils are also in the top year of primary, Year 6. We look forward to welcoming many of them into Year 7 in September 2015.

    We are now planning our sixth form for September 2015 and looking forward to delivering high quality courses that will enable our students to progress to higher education.

    We are very proud of the school we have built here and the opportunities it offers our students. I look forward to working with our parents in the coming years to ensure the best for their children.

  • Islamia Schools

    Mission Statement

    To strive to provide the best education in a secure Islamic environment, through the application of the Quran and Sunnah.

    Our mission statement encapsulates our approach to education. Providing a secure Islamic environment means a harmonious place where everybody is equal, respects one another and is a setting that is conducive to learning. It also means we provide a holistic approach to education, supporting the personal development of each student spiritually, morally, socially and culturally through curricular and non-curricular activities Our School provides an environment where students explore and have the freedom to develop their own identity whilst understanding that they are all equal, unique and valuable individuals each with different and valid viewpoints. We recognise that positive encouragement, appreciation and respect lead to more contented, wholesome students which play a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. Through the Religious Studies department, students learn about the integrity and spirituality of their own faith and the importance in Islam of respect of other faiths and belief systems. Through our curricular and non-curricular activities, we aim to promote personal responsibility and accountability. Motivated by a team of dedicated and professional staff, the education offered at Islamia Girls School aims to produce mature young ladies with leadership qualities and the ability to contribute, as responsible citizens, to the well-being of our society. We want our students to leave our school with Adab, which is respect for oneself and others, a respect for elders and a strong sense of empathy for those less fortunate.
    “Pupils are very polite, courteous and supportive of each other. Their behaviour and attitudes to learning are excellent. Pupils show a genuine thirst for learning. Staff ensure that pupils develop into very confident, self-motivated and self-assured young women.” Ofsted 2017

    Finally, as a Muslim school we encourage our students to always be mindful of Allah and hope that they carry this awareness into their adult lives. We try to impress upon them the importance of establishing regular prayers and maintaining a sense of awareness of a reality that is greater than themselves. The purpose of this is to try and earn the pleasure of Allah by doing good deeds, being kind to others and caring for the needy.

    The StreetGames charity was set up by half a dozen organizers of neighbourhood sports projects. In 2005 they came together to make sport more widely available for disadvantaged young people and to maximize the power of sport to change young lives and to change disadvantaged communities.

    These founding organisers were experienced workers in community regeneration programmes or they were involved in Sport England’s programme of 9 Sport Action Zones. Some founders were part of both programmes.

    The StreetGames pilot programme was run with the Football Foundation and the New Deal for Communities regeneration programme. Two years after deciding to set up the charity, StreetGames secured funding from the Sport England Lottery and officially launched in January 2007.

    StreetGames promotes Doorstep Sport – that is sport in disadvantaged communities that takes place at the right time, at the right place, in the right style and at the right price.

  • Twyford C of E High School

    Twyford is an 11-18 comprehensive School with a roll of just under 1400, including over 500 in the Sixth Form.

    Twyford is organised into year groups each containing seven tutor groups, which are also members of the school's seven houses Truro, Wells, York, Fountains, Ripon, Durham and Canterbury.

    Each Year Group has a Head of Year and an Assistant Head of Year. The Head of Year 7 liaises with the Primary Schools that our students have come from, and for this reason remains Head of Year 7 each year. Once students move into Year 8 they will then remain with their new year head until the end of Year 11.

    The lower years (7 to 9) cover the National Curriculum's Key Stage Three and are overseen by the Head of KS3. In the same way years 10 and 11 are overseen by the Head of KS4.

    In the Sixth Form there is a permanent Head of Year 12, and also one for Year 13 as well as an overall Head of KS5.

    Back to the top

    Twyford became a church School in 1981, when the London Borough of Ealing sold the premises to the London Diocesan Board.

    The present School came into being largely as a result of a determined campaign by a group of local parents, a number of whom are still involved in supporting the School.

    In its 2012 Ofsted Inspection Twyford was praised as being an outstandingSchool, at which the pastoral support and monitoring, the relationships between staff and students and the leadership of the school are all excellent.

    Back to the top

    Twyford aims to make the very most of its students. We do this by providing an education that is both challenging and fulfilling. We offer a full educational diet; not only in the formal curriculum, but also in a wide range of available extra-curricular activities!

    School life at Twyford is full of opportunities for students to learn. We encourage them to grow as individuals and we have a strong sense of community. We expect students to do their best for their own sake and for the sake of others. Most importantly in a faith school, we believe that all of our lives are given and governed by God.

    We expect our students to fulfil their potential academically, personally and spiritually.

    Back to the top
    Ethos vision

    At Twyford we wish to instil a love of learning. The curriculum is broad and balanced. The core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science provide a very secure foundation for progress. With each intake of new Year 7 students we aim to build immediately on their achievements at Key Stage 2. Setting in Maths, Science and Languages starts in Year 7 and in other subjects in Year 8. As students move up the school, their available options become increasingly varied.

    In the past 4 years Twyford has developed its reputation as a Specialist Language College to become a Unesco Associated School. Our curriculum is very well developed as at KS3, half of the year group studies two languages and Latin is a core subject. All students are then encouraged to study at least one Modern Language at GCSE (they choose from French, German or Spanish). Many take more than one language at GCSE and some elect to study Latin as an extra subject. This year Mandarin is also offered as an extra-curricular subject. At KS3 pupils have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of trips to Normandy, Barcelona, Paris, Bath and the University of Cambridge and we also run an exchange programme in Year 8 to Moenchengladbach in Germany. At KS4 the school has exchanges with 2 other partner schools in Toledo and Lyon and at KS5 students are encouraged to take part in the Comenius and Erasmus schemes, which allow them to debate at the European Parliament in Brussels and visit Mozambique, China and our same sister school in Lyon. Approximately four hundred students are involved in the Language College wider learning opportunities, which help to enrich their experience of learing a foreign language. In addition, our teachers have developed privileged links with primary schools across the borough and help to train teachers to teach French and Latin at KS2

    All students take ICT, History, Geography, Music, Drama, PE, Art and Religious Education. Religious Education GCSE is taken one year in advance of other subjects and our success rate in this subject is particularly high.

    All students have ICT lessons and use computers as a learning tool in many subjects. A full programme of Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship is also followed by all students.
