A girls high school in Preston has been given the highest quality teaching rating by the education watchdog Ofsted.


Preston Muslim Girls High School has been rated as ‘outstanding’ in its most recent inspection.

The school, based in Peel Hall Street, Deepdale, has 437 pupils.

Headteacher Mufti Javid said: “We are delighted with the Ofsted judgement of ‘Outstanding’ especially following a set of outstanding GCSE results in the summer.

“The school continues to go from strength to strength to give the best possible learning experience to our pupils.

“We would like to thank all the staff, pupils, parents, staff and governors and the entire community for their dedicated support.

“We are delighted that the school has got the recognition we feel it deserves and we will continue to improve.”

“Teachers have very high expectations of all pupils. They ensure that all groups of pupils make exceptional progress from their starting points.”

Inspectors praised the drive of the headteacher to broaden the provision of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness of life in modern Britain which has created tolerant, respectful and considerate pupils.

Inspectors found the school to be outstanding in all four areas: leadership and management, teaching and learning, personal development behaviour and welfare and pupil outcomes.
