At BIA, we ensure all our children achieve their full potential in every aspect of school lives. Our faith is precious to us and takes a centre and key role to every part of BIA efforts.
BIA endeavours to give the children a fully rounded education which will enable them to be part of the global village and wider community (whatever this community might be, Somaliland, Europe, USA, Canada etc) living their lives as good Allaah fearing Muslim citizens.
At BIA our committed, qualified, passionate and highly experienced staff, work hard to ensure a caring, secure and happy Islamic environment in which all learners will thrive and perform to the best of their abilities.
Our curriculum ensures that our children get the broad and balanced experience which they are entitled to. Within our community, we encourage the parents and carers of our pupils to play a vital role in the education of their children.
A partnership between home and school ensures our pupils are provided with all support and love they need to flourish and enjoy their learning experience. This is least our precious children deserve.
We, at BIA School, follow a child-centered educational approach. We make sure that it is based the Deen of Allaah, the traditions of our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم according to the undertanding and application by our honoured Salaf. We respect scientific observations as long as it doesn’t contradict with the Deen of Allaah. We believe that a child is naturally curious and is capable of initiating learning in a supportive and thoughtfully prepared environment.
