It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Leicester Islamic Academy was founded in 1982, and has a rich history of success for all. Many of our alumni have gone on to be successful in the fields of Medicine, Accountancy, Pharmacy, Teaching, Dentistry and Islamic scholars. We offer a friendly, happy Islamic educational setting for your child to thrive in.
We are blessed with well-equipped classrooms that are resourced to provide an ideal environment in which young minds can achieve to the best of their potential. We are situated on a large site, in the leafy area of Stoneygate, Leicester. We are ideally located near to the main transport routes into Leicester and are in walking distance of the City centre and the Universities. We are fortunate to have a Pre-school Unit, LIA Gems, that provides a caring and nurturing environment from the age of three months to three years.
For Primary school age children from age three in Nursery to age eleven in Year 6, Leicester Islamic Academy provides a stimulating education that allows children to thrive spiritually and reach their full academic potential. Children end their LIA school journey in Year 6 with excellent academic skills and an Islamic education based on the Quran and the Sunnah.
The Islamic education is delivered through a carefully structured curriculum teaching our pupils how to recite the Qur’an with tajweed and enhancing their knowledge of the essentials of Islam. Throughout the six years at LIA, pupils will learn different surahs from juz Amma and will also learn different duas from the hadith. The Islamic studies curriculum comprises hadith, fiqh, aqeedah, and seerah, all which are taught, using a variety of resources, in an engaging and challenging, yet enjoyable manner.
Our motto is ‘Excellence Everyday’, this is lived out by our wonderful pupils and our dedicated staff team. Our Mission statement is a clear reflection of our values and ethos. We have an LIA school vision that is based on every child developing a strong deen and growing up to be a responsible British citizen who gives back to society through hard work and service.
To see our vision in practice, come and visit us! We look forward to welcoming to you to our friendly and caring school, Leicester Islamic Academy. Together with you today, we grow the leaders of tomorrow.
