Admission Requirements

The Islamic Centre Edgware Madrasah is open to all Muslim children regardless of their ethnicity, race, and culture.

The minimum age for admission is 7 years and the maximum age is 16 years of age or at the discretion of management in borderline cases. Younger children are expected to have reached the age of discernment, have a basic level of literacy and to be toilet trained.

Children are expected to receive other state or private education to enable them to be literate which will enhance their learning experience at Madrasah.

In the event of oversubscription, the Madrasah has adopted a general policy of accepting students in order of their submission of a fully completed application form, and attendance for an admission test. Thereafter, students are selected according to the spaces available in the Madrasah depending on the class that a space can become available in.

All parents and students are expected to comply with the Madrasah regulations. This includes rules relating to attendance and lateness, uniform requirements and parking restrictions.

A full set of Rules and Regulations can be found here.

The financial donation for the Madrasah are set to £360 annually for weekday students (Monday – Thursday, 5 -7pm); £240 annually for weekend students (Saturday – Sunday, 11-1pm) and £180 annually for the advanced Sunday class (1.15- 3.15pm or 30 minutes later during summer times).

Our Madrasah is currently full in most classes but we are taking application forms which are filed according to the date a fully completed application form is received.

Children would normally be assessed to ascertain their level after completion of the form, and during that time parents will also be required to bring proofs of ID to complete registration including:

  • Birth Certificate of the child
  • Passport sized photograph
  • Proof of address
  • A Completed Standing Order Form (we no longer take cash payments unless paid for the entire year upfront)
  • Preferably a recent school report

After assessment the child will then be placed in a list for the class most suited to their level. Children can only normally join classes at the beginning of a term.

Monies are payable annually or monthly in advance (irrespective of holidays). There is also a £40 non-refundable admission cost at the time of starting. An initial set of books is given free of charge but thereafter students will be required to buy all necessary books.
