Muslim primary schools have again exceeded  the national average pass rate in the Key Stage 2 Level 4 and above exams, a level expected for 11-year-olds in their last year in primary school.

On average 91 percent of students sitting their KS2 (or equivalent) tests last year in Muslim schools reached Level 4 and above in English that is 11 percent higher than the national average. For Math 90 percent of students in Muslim schools reached Level 4 and above, 5 percent higher than the national average.

Thirty-six of the schools featured are Independent and seven are Voluntary Aided (some costs are subsidized by the government).

They include Al Falah and Tayyibah Girls  (Hackney); Al-Hudaa  (Nottingham); Al-Noor and Apex (Redbridge); Assunnah (Haringey); Crystal Gardens (Bradford); Date Valley (Merton); Fitrah SIPS (Southampton); Leicester Islamic Academy and Noor Ul Islam (Waltham Forest).
