Our History

Iqra Academy opened in 2009 and is the only all Girls Islamic faith school in the City of Peterborough.

The Academy is unique in that it fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum along with the opportunity to learn Islamic values and Quranic studies, giving the students the best of both worlds.

Moving forward, our vision for the Academy is a simple one: we want every member of our learning community to be the very best that they can be and achieve their full potential.

Our aim at Iqra Academy is to enable our students to develop a sense of self-value and self-respect as British citizens and help them to become valued and responsible members of British society.

The Academy has a vibrant and challenging atmosphere, where students have the highest expectations and standards, showing trust and discipline in all that we do.
