At Preston Muslim Girls’ High School, we strongly believe that it is our collective moral duty to contemplate the welfare of all mankind, as our faith teaches us that this basic duty transcends race, colour, beliefs, gender or faith. Faith plays a vital and integral role in promoting cohesion and enhances within us all respect, responsibility and resilience. The school aims to rejoice all that faith has to give and instil a sense of joy at being part of the local and wider community. We have a comprehensive approach to faith, welcoming people of all beliefs and recognising that we are all part of, and contributing to, something far greater than ourselves.
We are proud of our faith, its values and its emphasis on a shared view of humanity – one family and one world for which we all share responsibility. We take a progressive, outward-facing, inclusive and globally-orientated interpretation of the Islamic faith.
Everything we do is designed to enable all our students to live their lives according to the values of self-discipline, compassion, mutual respect for all people regardless of difference and respect for the earth itself. We teach them regarding different religions and the similarities and the differences between them, instilling respect for different faiths and cultural diversity in the way people choose to live in a modern British society. These fundamental values underpin the Islamic faith and our British way of life.

A great emphasis is placed on character development – promoting values such as respect, self-discipline, care, tolerance, patience, modesty, gratitude, humility sincerity and love for each other. We promote an ethical lifestyle, enabling our learners to feel empowered to fulfil their responsibilities to themselves, their families, wider humanity and the environment around them.
We promote fundamental British values to prepare our pupils to live in a multi-faith modern Britain. We want to prepare all our students to achieve to their potential, fully engaged citizens in multi-cultural 21st century Britain. We want to support and help them explore how they can apply faith values in their everyday lives as committed British citizens. We want them to become model British citizens, inspired by faith to uphold fundamental British values, reject extremism in any form and to prosper as part of British society. We want them to make a genuine and determined contribution and, by their actions, to demonstrate the best of what the Muslim faith can contribute to British life and culture.
