To provide education in an Islamic environment that encourages good discipline, behaviour, tolerance and respect in order to achieve goals by developing potential and thereby creating role models for the community. We want each student to feel appreciated, happy, and to be able to enjoy their learning through a stimulating environment which celebrates their individuality.
Vision & Ethos
Rochdale Islamic Academy for Boys’ aims to provide a well-rounded education to the highest of standards, implanting self-esteem and self-confidence and thus enabling pupils to hold the highest of values and a positive attitude whilst upholding their Islamic values. In turn making them responsible and inspiring young men. RIAB is a place that invests all its passion in what is good, recognising that what our young people achieve and experience at our school will have a profound effect and impact upon their lives.
We recognise that all children are unique; we develop their talents using innovative approaches using academy freedoms to meet the diverse needs of our learning community, set within an extended school day. Our school is the school of choice for parents and carers who are proud to be ambitious for their children, value academic success, and who want them to achieve to the fullest of their ability within a supportive and caring environment that safeguards their Islamic faith.
RIAB is based on three distinctive principles:
- Attainment for all
We are committed to providing excellence in education based on a recognised high quality curriculum whilst encouraging the unique potential of each learner. Given the size of the school, our learners are well known and receive appropriate and bespoke support so that they have the best possible platform for high achievement.
- Public service
RIAB has a strong and enduring foundation in each and every child’s life. Taking part in activities with local public services including Police, Health and Fire services engages learners as citizens and empowers them to recognise both the values of public service and their own potential for doing good. Learners will graduate from our school as responsible, active citizens, driven in all they do by a strong moral compass.
- Stronger Society
We are committed to creating a school recognised as central to the community, which works with whole families rather than just young people. Through the promotion of citizenship and community action, we work in partnership to create a stronger society for all.
