LEA & AM British Values Statement

“Our aim is to ensure that young people leave school with the knowledge, skills and ambition to succeed in modern Britain and to compete in the global labour market.”

Promoting British values is fundamental to achieving this and that is why we continue to ensure that the Department of Education’s five part definition of British Values is delivered not only across the curriculum but also in all of the additional opportunities students at LEA & Al-Mizan have outside the curriculum, in the local community and globally.

London East Academy is an independent Islamic secondary school for boys and Al-Mizan is a mixed junior school. Both schools are located in the East End of London at the prestigious East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre.


Our Mission – we aim to be a learning community that aspires to educate the whole child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, cultural, social, emotional and physical.


Our Aims

  • To provide a high quality broad and balanced curriculum offering national curriculum subjects, the memorisation of the Quran (Hifdh) and Islamic sciences in which students are provided with opportunities and encouragement to develop and discover their interests and talents.
  • To provide a community in which children can grow and develop, so that ultimately they can enter the fast changing world with confidence and make a positive contribution to their school and community
  • To provide the appropriate support to allow all students to achieve and fulfil their individual and collective potential in both the national curriculum and Islamic sciences as well as hifdh.
  • To recruit, develop and retain the best possible staff and provide a stimulating, rewarding and supportive environment for all who are employed at our schools.
  • To nurture character development where a child will acquire knowledge,  life skills and uphold core Islamic values such as courage, respect, integrity, responsibility and service to others


Askor Ali


It was in the summer of 2001 when a group of dedicated parents noticed a need for a school that combines between learning Islamic traditions and a high quality programme of education in teaching national curriculum subjects. Shortly after, Al-Mizan was formed.
