What is Awwal Academy:

Awwal Academy is an afternoon Supplementary school that offers faith and character development programmes, core curriculum support and other out-of-school activities to children.

What do we do:

Awwal Academy exists to raise the attainment of children and young people through excellence in education, upbringing and nurturing support, engendering love and driving home values such as family, community spirit and social responsibility. We provide a variety of learning opportunities (soft and hard skills dev.)  and also offer extra-curricular activities like Arts and Sports.

Why are we so effective?

We are an important vehicle for channeling direct support to our communities. We are based within the communities that we serve so we can respond to specific needs and issues within those communities. We provide targeted educational and socio-economic support from a shared cultural and/or linguistic perspective and provide children communities with dedicated and hard-working role models from their own cultural backgrounds.

Our core pillars:

  •     Raising aspirations
  •     Learning mother-tongue languages
  •     Cultural engagement
  •     Culture of achievement
  •     Peer support
  •     Engaging parents
