Green Oak Academy – Girls’ School
In early 2016, Scholars and Academics from the South Birmingham Muslim community saw an urgent need to set-up an Islamic School which provided high quality School Curriculum education in an environment which championed authentic Islamic values and teachings.
The need was to ensure that neither were Muslim children hidden away in the name of preserving their Islamic identity nor were they left unprepared for life in modern britain with mediocre skills and aspirations.
Green Oak Academy – Girls’ School started in September 2016 on the site of the former Woodstock Girls’ School as a humble effort to address these issues. Through the grace of Allah Ta’ala and the efforts of the core team, the school and Madrasah have grown from strength to strength.
From morning to evening, the building now reverberates with recitation of the Glorious Qur’an, high quality Islamic studies classes and high quality School Curriculum classes whilst students, staff and visitors make use of the Masjid area of the building for Salah during classes.
The School Site
The School site has historically occupied a special corner in the heart of the local Muslim community. It was once home to the now imposing Masjid Hamza which is located a short distance away on Church Road. It has had the honour of being host to a number of legendary luminaries such as Mawlana Manzoorul Haqq rahimahullah (Former Imam at Masjid Hamza) and Qari Tayyab Qasmi rahimahullah.
Occupying such an old site has not been short of challenges for Green Oak Academy. Extensive works have been carried out to modernise the building and meet modern health and safety standards whilst maintaining its unique homely character.
The school site is now commonly described as a home away from home by visitors, staff and students.
Green Oak Academy is fortunate to have been able to operate the Islamic Girls’ School over the past few years. We are now in the process of seeking sites to extend provision to further sections of the community.
Members of the community are kindly requested to remember the School and Madrasah in their Du’aas and assist where possible.
