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. Priority may be given to siblings. Thereafter, students are selected according to the spaces available in the Madrasah depending on the class that a space can become available in. Application forms are accepted (when the Madrasah is not full) and are filed according to the date a fully completed application form is received.

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.

The weekday classes are one hour long and run on Monday to Thursday between 5pm to 6pm or between 6pm to 7pm. The weekend classes are also for one hour and run on both Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 12pm or 12pm to 1pm.  Our class sizes are kept to approximately 8 -10 students so the teacher can focus on the student more than they can for a larger class with a longer duration of time. This corresponds to children attention spans and frees children for other extracurricular activities. We have classes at the centre and online.

All students are expected to comply with the uniform requirements adopted by the Madrasah.

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)

£240 annually for weekend students (Saturday – Sunday)

An annual payment in advance can be made (or a completed Standing Order in 12 equal payments including holidays). Failure to keep up payments may result in suspension or expulsion.

Once a position becomes available, 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

After assessment the child will then be placed in a list for the class most suited to their level. Once assessment is done, places are allocated based upon those who respond soonest to confirm any offer given. Children can only normally join classes at the beginning of a mon.

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.
