Preston Muslim Girls High School is an ‘Outstanding’ comprehensive, Voluntary Aided, Muslim girls school, situated in the midst of the community, close to the city centre. It was graded Outstanding in both of its inspections, Section 5 and Section 48 inspections.

The school has the highest P8 within the authority and is ranked 11th nationally. This demonstrates the high expectations and performance of all within the school. The school provides a welcoming, calm and safe environment in which our young people can thrive.

Safeguarding and Child Protection practices are exemplary; attendance rates are exceptional; and visitors to the school frequently comment upon the exemplary behaviour and attitude of our pupils.
