Al-Hijrah School - Bilkish Mohamed

'Al-Hijrah School had an OFSTED report on 15th and 16th June 2010 and the inspectors said the school no longer needs a 'notice to improve' what a relief! In fact the school achieved a good overall. The inspectors were very impressed with our links with the Physics Factory, especially when I explained that we wanted to deliver the seperate sciences but did not have the expertise and confidence in delivering the EDEXCEL P3 extension topics.'
