The opportunity to educate other people’s children is a rare privilege, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their adult lives.
At RIAB we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our pupils feel valued.
We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. School should be fun and happy children are more likely to be successful. We see it as our responsibility to bring out our boys’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities.
To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality so that boys are ready to make a really positive contribution to their wider community.
Rochdale Islamic Academy Boys’ (RIAB) School has a distinguished history of providing an outstanding all round education. We have high aspirations for all our boys and provide an environment in which they can achieve them.
An education at RIAB School will enable your son to identify and cultivate his own special interests and talents, develop a sense of intellectual curiosity and achieve excellent academic results.
At RIAB we help every boy discover his unique talents and strengths. Our staff are committed to developing in each boy the love of learning, creative independence and academic self-discipline which will enable him to achieve excellent examination results. Our aim is to inspire in our boys the attributes, skills and values which will enable them to make informed choices, become responsible and principled citizens, enjoy successful careers and achieve personal fulfilment.
Ours is a vibrant community where your son will be happy and make life-long friends. He will become a confident, eloquent and considerate young man, who will be well prepared to make his way in the world and make a difference for good.
Our website pages can only offer a glimpse of what we can offer your son. We would be delighted to provide you with a tour of the school, so that you are able to see at first-hand what a truly exceptional education RIAB School provides.
