Apply for Admission

2024/25 applications are now open

We don’t just give students an education and experiences that set them up for success. We help them succeed in their learning —to discover learning they’re passionate about and dare to enjoy thus fulfil knowledge for Righteous Action.


The Beginning

Assunnah Primary School was established in 2007; the school was the project of Assunnah Islamic Centre and was formed in response to the high demand from the Muslim community in North London for an Islamic Primary School. It was also created to address the under-representation of Muslim schools in the borough of Haringey.

Making Progress

At first the school was mainly attended by members of the local community, but with the growth and success of Assunnah Primary School we now have students from neighbouring communities and even from the outside boroughs.

Ofsted Registered

In 2008/09 Assunnah Primary school notified the Department Of Education and we had our first visit from Ofsted. The school met the requirements set by the Department of Education and soon after became a registered school, and was awarded Ofsted recognition.

Moving Forward

Today, Assunnah Primary School is oversubscribed and our waiting list is growing significantly every year. Our current accommodation is what is limiting us to meet those demands. This is the fundamental reason why Assunnah Primary school is looking to move to a more spacious location.

A Statement From Our Beloved Staff & Teachers

Year 1

Year 3/4
Year 5/6

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh,

My name is Nura and I am very excited to introduce myself as the new reception class teacher at Assunnah Primary School.

I have recently obtained a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a PGCE, alhamdulilah, which I plan to transfer to an MA in Education inshaAllah. I have a great amount of experience in teaching across all Key Stages.

I love my job and get lots of pleasure from seeing children do well and achieving. Being a teacher is very rewarding. In my opinion, it’s the best job in the world! I am determined that all children will be successful as I want to inspire them the way my own teachers in schools inspired me. I want to instil a love of learning and confidence in children making the impossible, possible.

Jazakh Allah Khairan

Assalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh,

My name is Ust. Manal. I am the year 1 teacher. I have been in this school for over 3 years (Allahamduliah). I have studied Early Childhood Education and Care as a degree to gather knowledge and experience for this role. I enjoy teaching as its a rewarding role, especially in an Islamic school. Being a teacher has a real desire to make a difference and help others succeed. Teaching leaves a lasting legacy as the children you teach today become the leaders, innovators and thinkers or tomorrow.

Jazakallah khairan


Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh.

I am Ustadh Mohammed-Amin Quraishi, before starting my career as a teacher, I used to work as an ABA Therapist, specializing in ASD. My work was very rewarding as I was able to help vulnerable people; but as it is the case in many professions, I used to finish late and work during term breaks. As a result, I missed spending time with my children, who were growing up. I understood the importance of a father’s active presence and participation in children’s lives. So I decided to pursue a career in teaching. I recieved my teacher training from Essex Primary SCITT, an outstanding training provider, and as it is with a SCITT course, I recieved a lot of subject knowledge input and pedagogical input along with the school based experience.
After completing my course I realised I had the opportunity to work in an islamic environment; i had missed a lot of Friday salahs during my training year. I found Assunnah Primary School, an up and cmoing school with good transpot links from my house, hence I applied to work here and I was selected to be an year 2 teacher.
I am looking forward to working with Assunah teaching as well as learning from them, I am enjoying the islamic culture in the community.


Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh.

I am Ustadha Khadija and I will be the year 3/4 teacher. I received my teacher training from the University of Cumbria which enabled me to learn through a blend of theory and hands-on experience, working within the National Curriculum Framework. I am delighted to join Assunnah and have the opportunity to raise children’s achievements and cultivate a lifelong love of learning Insha’Allah.


Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuh. I am Ustadha Nada, and I will be the year 5/6 teacher for this year Insha’Allah. I have previously graduated with an undergrad degree in Journalism, English language, and Linguistics, and then went on to undertake a post-grad degree in PGCE Primary. I received my teacher training programme from Roehampton University, a university known to be an outstanding training provider, and with it I received a vast amount of subject knowledge and pedagogical input, as well as school-based experience. Overall, this allowed me to gain my QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) Allhamdulilah, and equipped me to understand what our children need in order to become the best learners, make progress and achieve. Therefore, I look forward to teaching this class and working with you all to receive positive outcomes Insha’Allah.
