Islamic school, Lancaster (The Royal Albert aka Jamea Al Kauthar)



The Royal Albert building on Ashton Road, Lancaster. This impressive structure currently houses an Islamic girls' madressah and boarding school, Jamea Al Kauthar. The school caters for 440 girls who study:
"the traditional sciences concurrently with secondary and further education, offer[ing] the 'Tahfeez Ul Quraan' programme (committing the whole quran to memory) and a two year abridged version of the Islamic Teaching programme in the English medium."

I know little about the school beyond what can be found on their website, although it's a building I'd dearly like to visit. I'll contact them and ask for a tour at some point when school is out, perhaps during the summer.

  1. It's a gorgeous building...looks huge! I'm glad to see they study the "sciences," but I can't think of a bigger waste of time than to memorize a religious book. :-)

  23. Its a shame such a historic building is now being used to teach Muslim girls when this great builing could be used to in better ways.... And after today's reports of Muslim girls be held against there will and sexually asulted it makes me laugh that no one else saw this coming.

  25. This building is indeed being utilised to it's maximum potential and I can certainly vouch for that. I am extremely pleased with the current management committee who have maintained this unique English heritage to the best of standards inside out and prevented it from becoming a derelict site. On the other hand, I am very disappointed and ashamed of some of our british narrow minded scum bags who just cannot think positive hence without any first hand experience or constructive justification they immediately offload their negative comments perfectly resembling their poor up bringing. On numerous occasions I have had the opportunity to interact with the students and the staff of this institute and I shall confirm that their character, demeanour, gesture and hospitality has consistently been incomparable. I need not to say much about it's standard of education as the outstanding offsted reports speak for itself. May I say that I am glad to hear
    that accusations of sexual assault and false imprisonment made against this establishment has proven to be false and fabricated. I wish this institute, its staff and students all the success and a bright future.

  31. Getting education in Islamic boarding schools with same religion of students makes them understand the importance of their religion and they can easily concentrate on their studies as well.

  32. I have studied there for 6 years, I have to say it was an amazing experience, and the atmosphere is just amazing. Top teachers, and very respectful students. May those who have put so much effort behind it be rewarded immensely. Couldn't have been the person I am today without this school. Truely a life changing experience

  33. it was an institution for individuals with learning disabilities. I'm currently a second year LD student nurse and would love to look around. Do you think this would be possible?
