Weekend School


To produce a generation of Muslims who have a balanced and contextualised understanding of Islam, Muslims who are not only God conscious, but also productive and contributive citizens of British society thereby leading purpose-driven lives in a way that promotes peace, harmony, tolerance and justice.


The Cheadle Masjid Weekend Islamic School has been running for many years now; It’s aim is to help provide a basis of Islamic education for our children aged 5 – 11 years. It will supplement the Islamic Education you provide at home, of course it cannot be a whole substitute, the culture is Islamic Practice can only be developed by developing an Islamic environment at home.

Subjects and Curriculum

Children will learn Insha’Allah how to recite the Qur’an with correct Tajweed and with some basic understanding. They are encouraged to memorise, but our main focus is to give the children the tools they need to read the Qur’an independently so that they can continue to read in their own time and beyond leaving the school.
Furthermore, we cover an Islamic Studies Course; it covers a new topic each week from the basic 5 pillars to the story of the Prophets as well as contemporary issues. We use “Weekend Learning” books specifically imported from North America that are suited for a school such as ours and are recommended by Islamic educationalists. Regular homework is given too and children are expected to complete them to maintain their level in the school!

Teaching Methodology

Our teachers adopt several teaching pedagogies to ensure the needs of each learner are met. There is a focus on activity-based learning to ensure greater student involvement and engagement. We have also recently upgraded our classrooms with the latest technology to provide teachers the opportunity to utilize the latest Islamic apps into their teaching methodology. We are fortunate Masha’Allah to have excellent teachers (DBS checked) many of whom have been with us for some years. Currently we have close to 130 children in the school; there is a waiting list as we have limited teaching space so we would recommend applying early by completing the application form which can be found here. If your child is accepted, we have an induction for parents and a strict code of conduct around behaviour and attendance.
