When your child enters our school, he/she begins to build a strong foundation in the understanding of Islam through their exposure to Quranic and Islamic Studies. Our comprehensive teaching approach ensures your child is equipped with an all-rounded Islamic education that can support their navigation through life. 

At Olive Tree, we focus on four subjects spread throughout the school day. In between each lesson, we have a short break and at lunchtime, a slightly longer break to take time for a light lunch and duhur salah. 

Our classes are allocated by age, and within classes, students are assessed and further grouped by ability. Each class has an appropriate pace for the students’ age range, but is individualised enough to allow students to progress at their own speeds. We monitor students’ progress on a weekly basis and each week, students are provided with feedback on their performance that week via their ‘Homework Diary’ for Parents to have sight of. Our carefully constructed curriculum ensures each child receives the individualised help and support they need to ensure they achieve their full potential.

Islamic Studies


In this subject, students spend the entirety of their time developing their knowledge in different areas of Islamic studies. Students from the age of five and above, study from Islamic educational books covering a substantial range of Islamic topics including Aqidah, Fiqh and Akhlaaq. Our teaching resources have been carefully selected by our Teaching and Learning Coordinators and are highly effective in their strengths of tailoring complex topics to different age ranges. Our resources are colourful, high quality and packed with creativity which really instils the enthusiasm of learning about Islam.  Children who are in the ‘Early Learning Foundation’ (under 5’s) primarily learn through constructive play where the use of nasheeds, storytelling, role play and hands-on activities are prominent.

This builds their love for the knowledge they intake even further. For students in our Lower School, we also focus our lessons on understanding the weight and meaning behind each of Allah swt’s 99 names.

Your child’s Homework Diary will be an integral part of our Teacher/Parent communication and is the dedicated gateway for an insight into your child’s learning every week. Beyond the Homework Diary, Parents are also formally informed of their child’s progress twice a year via their ‘Student Report’.
