The government is taking action so that pupils at Al Hijrah are prepared for life in modern Britain. We are committed to ensuring that the pupils succeed in their personal development as well as their academic development.
Al Hijrah is currently a school that caters for pupils aged 4 to 16. The local authority has now re-designated Al Hijrah into a primary school, which will operate from a new school site from 1 September 2019. Following this re-designation, the Regional Schools Commissioner for West Midlands approved an application for the newly designated primary school to become an academy sponsored by Star Academies Trust.
A new provision for secondary girls will also be available through a single sex free school on a new site. A decision on the free school is expected to be made by the end of February 2019.
Secondary boys currently attending Al Hijrah will be able to attend other local schools from September 2019.
