The government have introduced a ‘Progress 8’ score, which looks at the progress that pupils have made since arriving in high school. This gives an accurate measure of the value that a school has added to its pupils during their time there. Preston Muslim Girls High School are tenth out of 6,489 schools, including selective schools and academies.

Headteacher, Mufti Javid said ‘This year sees us breaking into the Top 10 Schools listings for the first time. I am delighted that the school has been able to maintain and even improve upon the exceptionally high standards which we have set ourselves for a number of years. This is a tribute to the superb work ethic at our school; to our dedicated pupils and to our outstanding team of highly motivated staff’.

Ofsted recognised the achievements of the school when it was inspected in 2016, grading it as ‘Outstanding’ in every category and calling attention to the high expectations of teachers, the ambitions of the school leaders and governors, the mature and confident pupils and the rapid progress that pupils make from their starting points”
