Welcome from the Principal
Assalamu alaikum / Peace be upon you
I am delighted to welcome you to Eden Girls’ School Slough, an exciting and progressive Islamic faith school for girls.
Our school opened in September 2015 with our first cohort of Year 7 and 8 students. We have now completed our first set of GCSE exams. Our students have performed exceptionally well placing them in the first percentile nationally for progress.
We are proud to be part of the highly successful network of schools that forms Star Academies and to join them in the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our work.
“God loves, when one of you is doing something, that he (or she) does it in the most excellent manner.” A narration of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)
Our aim is to unlock the potential of every student in our school and take them on a unique and transformational learning journey.
We offer an inclusive faith ethos which is relevant to people of all faiths and those with none. We focus on the core values that underpin Islam and which are fundamental to British society. As such, we endeavour to enable each learner to develop an outstanding character and understand the importance of self-discipline, dedication, care, compassion and tolerance.
Our commitment to educational excellence is at the heart of everything we do. We provide a rigorous and enriching curriculum and a strong emphasis on academic achievement. We ensure that the learning experience is personalised to support every student in making exceptional progress and also give them the opportunity to develop their interests and skills through a vast array of exciting extra-curricular clubs and activities.
Whilst our learners will have every opportunity to pursue their personal aspirations, they will also learn to appreciate the importance of society and the contribution each individual must make to sustain it. Community service is therefore central to the learning of our students as we help them prepare to make a positive and lasting contribution as leaders at a local, national and international level.
The school’s ethos and curriculum aims are supported by our Leadership Specialism. Our location, in the centre of Slough with its strong culture of enterprise and entrepreneurship, provides us with the perfect setting to develop these.
