PMGHS was established in 1989 by a group of sincere volunteers to provide an excellent educational experience with an Islamic character that develops each and every pupil to achieve her full spiritual, moral, social and educational potential through a deep appreciation of her faith. Having proudly served the local community for many years we combine traditional values with a forward-looking and vibrant learning environment where young people are nurtured to become considerate, confident and well-rounded Muslimahs.
We have created an atmosphere where expectations are high, ambitions are great, and values are deeply rooted; where girls grow in confidence and are able to pursue their dreams. Every pupil and staff member is expected to work hard to achieve the best outcomes, to take pride in what they do, yet be directed by their moral compass.
Values such as patience, modesty, gratitude, humility and sincerity are constantly encouraged. With care, compassion and politeness our school assures a warm and welcoming learning environment where every pupil feels truly part of our inclusive family.
Our curriculum is tailored to provide a rich learning experience for all of our pupils, delivered through a broad and balanced range of subjects that pupils study and a wide variety of additional experiences that they take part in. The curriculum is intended to make the best of our pupils, leading them to achieve outstanding results, which in turn increases their chances of being successful in higher education and employment. The curriculum is enhanced through a wide range of extra-curricular activities to ensure that all of our pupils have the best possible learning experience – one that they will treasure for life.
For three years in succession PMGHS has been one of the top non-selective state schools in the country. In 2019, the school was ranked in the top 10 in the country for Department of Education’s Progress 8 measure.
However, we rigorously evaluate the past years performances to see where we can improve further. Our key focus for this year is to improve attainment in Mathematics and Modern Foreign Languages. Also, to further improve the quality of formative and summative assessments. This will provide accurate performance data of each subject and pupil, allowing timely and effective monitoring and early interventions. All staff will continue to receive support and guidance in their continuous professional development and in sharing of best practice.
Working together with all our stakeholders we would like to make PMGHS a beacon for excellence in all what we do.
