Children's Institute

Seeking Knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim

We are an educational institution which is committed to providing an academically rigorous education to students who will walk out of school ready for lives challenges and Inshallah ready to service to their community. Our curriculum consists of teaching the Quran, Hadith, Fiqh, Aqeedah, Tajweed, Seerah, Hifdh, Manners, and modern challenges that Muslims in the West encounter every day.  Moreover, our programmes also enhance skills in literacy, numeracy, public speaking and financial management which are segments often overlooked in madaaris today.  Each day at the Lewisham Islamic Institute is filled with activities that are both enriching and fun and can’t be missed by any child growing up in inner London.


We strive to be committed to the students we are privileged to serve, therefore we have ensured we possess a dedicated and, talented faculty and staff. We also take pride in attempting to have the most active and helpful group of teachers, staff, visionary management team. We attempt to cater to all, thus we have implemented a SEN class in our madrassah which seeks to bridge the gap which has been open in Muslim educational spaces for an extended period.


The best of you are those who learn the Quran and then teach it
