How Was Zakaria Muslim Girls’ High School Established?

Zakaria Muslim Girls’ High School is one of three Muslim High Schools in the Kirklees area.  We are an independently financed secondary school for girls with 144 students on roll from the Kirklees and non-Kirklees areas.

The school was established in 1982 in response to an increasing awareness amongst parents that the needs of Muslim children were not being catered to in state schools. In the beginning, there were a handful of students receiving education in a terraced house that served as a school during the day and as a madresah during the evening.  It began with the blessed dua of the widely renowned Hazrat Sheikh Moulana Zakaria Sahib (R.A) after whom the school is named. The school is now located on two sites; the lower school (Years 7 - 9) is loacted at the Education Centre on Taylor street and the upper school (Years 10 & 11) is loacted at the main school building on Warwick Road.
