Message from Director

Dear Parents,

Assalamu'alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

With a need for an Islamic environment and quality education, Zaytūn International Academy(ZIA) has, AlhamduliLlah taken an initiative to promote both excellent academic education together with Hifz-al- Qur’an. It was noticed that many parents wished for their sons to do Hifz without compromising on their academic education, in a comfortable and safe campus. This would enable the child to complete the Hifz program and rejoin in the mainstream education according to their age.

At Zaytūn International Academy, we take this responsibility extremely seriously. We care about every student and ensure that they are provided with outstanding, progressive and integrated education to help them achieve true success.
We are fortunate that ZIA is able to offer both Islamic and Academic Education on a full boarding and day boarding basis. Children will be taught to memorise the Quran with tajweed, in addition to academic education. ZIA aims to prepare our children to become Hafiz-ul-Qur’an between 3-4 years on average. Zaytūn International Academy provides an environment in which the students can learn, understand and practice the Islamic way of life, simultaneously striving for excellence in subjects such as Mathematics, Science, English and Social Studies.

Furthermore, our holistic approach helps students to develop their Islamic faith and values through authentic Ta’aleem, Tarbiyyah and Tazkiyyah. Zaytūn International Academy (ZIA) presents the true essence of this great fruit of Zaytūn in the form of holistic education, that promotes enrichment of body, mind and soul to produce responsible individuals for the well-being of society at large. The opportunity to educate your children is a privilege and we, at ZIA, are fully committed to take this on as an Amanah and fulfil it, In sha Allah

Message from Principal

Dear Parents,

Assalamu'alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

I consider it a great privilege to help educate children from Muslim community of India. Having had the opportunity to educate children and young people in the UK and Saudi Arabia for over 20 years, I feel I have a great deal to offer in helping your children to be the best that they can.

To help them develop in the holistic sense – mind, body and soul - brings greater responsibility, and is something that I will fulfill with great care, sensitivity and seriousness. I truly look forward to this opportunity.

I am very passionate about education and consider empowering students, particularly Boys’, as extremely important. Today’s children will be tomorrow’s decision makers. Hence, I believe that if we educate our Boys’ properly it will help us raise the educational level of our community. But this is only a part of our goal, we want Muslim Boys’ to be educated to the highest levels so that they can gain access to the best possible university education and be able to fulfil their aspirations, and dreams.

I believe that your sons deserve the best possible education to make them the best that they can be. This is something that I believe I will be able to give for every single student.
