OTHS is not like other schools, it’s like a network of friends. We are like a family as we have smaller class sizes. More time with staff to give 1 to 1 support. We do have disagreements but they get sorted and we are all girls and its good fun. We are like sisters.

On Islamic celebrations we all come together as a family and fully participate in the celebration. Our lessons incorporate Duas and Hadiths through which we learn more about Islam.

We get along very well together and we also have house groups based on the role models of Islam. Being in the house groups teaches us that “men aren’t superior than women and women are not superior than men”.

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor does a black have any superiority over a white except by piety and good action.” (From the last sermon of Prophet Mohammed ﷺ PBUH)

Our teachers are providing us extra support sessions in order to prepare us for our GCSE Exams. We appreciate the help and support provide by our teachers.

During Salah time, the girls come together and offer their prayers in a collective and conducive environment.

The school also encourages enterprise. This is where we find out how the business world operates and get involved in charity work. It is very stimulating and ultimately we acquire skills in budgeting, planning, negotiating and communications.

School council is an opportunity to build confidence, knowledge and skills for future prospects, college and sixth form.
