Educating Tomorrow's Leaders

About us

A Message from the Head Teacher

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to KD Independent Grammar School for Boys.

I am delighted that you are considering placing your son with us. Choosing the right secondary school for your child is a process rather than an event and I hope that this website together with discussions with staff will provide you with sufficient information.

We are naturally proud of our reputation for academic excellence and enabling each pupil to reach his full potential but we also realise that high quality education goes hand in hand with developing each child, emotionally, socially and spiritually and to this end, we provide a wide range of extra curriculum opportunities which nurture self-respect, tolerance, team work and intellectual curiosity. Opportunities are also provided for our students to be involved in the school and wider community, especially with regard to taking responsibility and developing leadership skills. Our aim is to develop mature, confident and well balanced young men with the personal attributes of resilience and commitment which open the way to the “best” in Higher Education and employment. The majority of pupils who join us in year 7 proceed naturally to university degree courses at the age of 18.

KD is a Muslim school which is open to students of all faiths. Overarching and underpinning all of the school’s work are the values of love, respect, compassion and self-discipline together with a sense of awe and wonder about Allah SWT who sees each child as unique and precious. It is on this solid faith foundation that the school strives to be the best that it can be.  

The Prophet SAW said:

“One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by Allah…”

Riyadh us-Saleheen, 245

Our aim is therefore, quite simple, to produce both proud British citizens and also ambassadors for Islam. A balance is sought at KD Grammar School to enhance both the importance of a solid education and spiritual guidance and enlightenment which help produce confident young men who will make valid, noble and worthy contributions to the wider society they live in.

May Allah SWT guide us to do the very best for our children. Ameen.
