Olive Secondary School is unique in the model of education it offers to its students and the community. It is novel to Bradford and in fact Britain. The School was founded in 2005 in recognition of the need for the provision of a broad system of educational excellence; one that would meet the demands of parents who want their children to be equipped with the necessary skills and moral qualities to prepare them for tomorrow's world.

At the time of our humble beginnings we rented a detached property which consisted of four classrooms in terms of individuals we had six staff members and forty male students in Yrs 7 and 8. Now we have a purpose-built building with around twenty classrooms including specialist laboratories and ICT Suites; in terms of (wo)manpower we now have over fifty staff members specialising in various subjects and in excess of three hundred male and female students across Yrs 7 to 13.

Knowledge is the key to success and by the grace of Allah the Almighty, Olive Secondary was blessed with its’ first graduates of the Islamic Scholar course in 2013.

Safeguarding

Every one of you people is a shepherd. And every one is responsible for whatever falls under his responsibility. A man is like a shepherd of his own family, and he is responsible for them."

Child Protection

The following couplet summarises the effect a parent has upon his/her child: The parent is like a mirror, the reflection it gives, the child adopts. If the reflection is good, the child is good. If the reflection is bad, the child is bad. The first and foremost desire of parents is to prepare their child for a bright and successful future.

Thus every parent hopes and wishes that their children be pious with excellent character but this can only be achieved if the correct method towards this goal is adopted and the right environment created from the very beginning

Why Us? Read it Yourself!

  • With a need for an Islam-compliant environment and quality education I arrived at Olive Secondary School in its early days of the year 2008. Olive provided me with the opportunity to study two sets of curriculum, allowing me to develop spiritually/morally and academically. Always being offered a personal concern and effort from the hardworking staff and school members is what has made this truly unique for me. And after 7 years, our journey at Olive comes to an end as students, as we leave with the best years of our life and the most precious of memories. Teaching more than just books, Olive is an outstanding place to learn.
