*Mindful Tarbiyya Event Postponed*

Unfortunately, after careful consideration and given the current health climate and public opinion surrounding Corona Virus (COVID-19), it is with a heavy heart that we’ve decided to postpone the event until after Ramadan, inshaAllah.

Given the extra precautions we are being advised to take, we believe that it’s in the best interest of all to delay the gathering until a time of more certainty and stability.

May Allah accept everyone’s intention to attend and better yourselves for His sake – alhamdullilah for a deen that rewards intentions regardless of the results!

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will be issuing all refunds in the coming days, inshaAllah.

Remember, this is not a cancellation but rather a postponement, so we’ll be in touch soon and hope to see you all in the near future!

This week our students got into the spirit of anything and everything technology-related; they made PowerPoints, did research, and even coded their own websites! Each class participated in a fun array of activities which allowed them to tinker with different skills - both which were familiar and unfamiliar to them! We've got some snapshots of our assemblies where students were encouraged to share their projects with the school, as well as some of their work too!

Our new playground activities are certainly being enjoyed by all! We've got basketball, ping pong, hop scotch, arts and crafts and so much more!

Feel free to enjoy the selection of photos starring many happy faces from today, and check out our website for a more thorough gallery update!


Save the date for May 25th, because that's when our student body from Years 1-6 will be performing at ArtsDepot theatre; we've got an exciting extravaganza lined up for you for the afternoon, ranging from a multitude of nasheed performances, to an exciting play titled 'When the Clock Strikes Eid' and the official launch of our new BHA anthem, which our students have had the pleasure of creating alongside HalalBeats (a digital media company specializing in Islamic vocals).

So book your tickets now, and we hope to see you soon!

Barnet Hill Academy EYFS classes have been looking at the importance of road safety - from zebra crossings and traffic lights, to learning all about how to cross the road safely, our youngest students have become pioneers of safe travelling. In addition to road safety, we’ve also been inspecting different modes of travel and our Reception class was thrilled to visit a train station this week. We watched trains trundle past, received an in-depth tour by the Station Master and even learned the fascinating process behind printing tickets and tapping Oyster cards.


Monday morning smiles at the snowy school gates today. Barnet Hill Academy students excited and still raring to go! Applications still open for state funded reception places for September 2023 at UK’s 8th Voluntary Aided Islamic Primary School.

When it comes to respect, it's often reiterated how elders should always be treated kindly, but what's also important is behaving nicely with our juniors too!

Last week's theme explored the importance of treating those who are younger than us with an equal amount of respect, and in particular we looked at the hadith in which the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is reported to have said:

"Whoever does not respect our elders, is not compassionate to our youth, and does not give our scholars due honour, he is not one of us."
(Ahmad and Hakim)


There’s an abundance of knowledge to be learned at the RAF (Royal Air Force Museum), and a wealth of historical artefacts, clothing and more! Year 2 Barnet Hill Academy students dived into the history of Hendon rooted into the local landscape, and consulted maps, images, written sources and artefacts to investigate the impact that aviation companies had on the development of Hendon.

A Fun Fact:

Did you know that Colindale was actually known as Colin Dale, as it was initially fields which were then later used for an aerodrome!


Rockets are some of the most fascinating technological machinery to exist, and Year 5 Barnet Hill Academy students experimented with making their own rockets, using a variety of different materials such as foil, cardboard and more! Activities like this only enhance our students’ ability to ‘think outside the box’ as well as ingrain the importance of collaboration with their peers!


Did you know that there are three different types of rock, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic? We didn’t either! But Barnet Hill Academy’s Year 3 students have dived into geological investigations this week and as part of their learning, have also painted some fantastic designs onto pebbles of their own! It also helps that they’ve been reading ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’, a scientific adventure that takes readers around the globe, which further links together their different areas of learning.

L is for Learning

We have a volunteer’s reading scheme run by an army of parent volunteers which gives children one-on-one reading attention and where they are able to explore their feelings, thoughts and ideas on their books! Enquiry based learning is also key at our school, so whether our students are investigating parachute drops, the distances of celestial objects or mini beasts, they are doing so with their whole selves and their thinking hats firmly on! WOW moments are an everyday occurrence at Barnet Hill Academy.

The L in Barnet Hill academy will tell you about our Loving and safe environment -

As a school, we know we are ambassadors of Islam for our children too. Like Brother Yossouf our seemingly stoic caretaker, who always has the best dad jokes up his sleeve to keep the pupils entertained. “I love my job, in particular the mornings. I enjoy watching the children walk through the school gates with their big school bags and even bigger smiles!”

The L in Barnet Hill academy will tell you about our Loving and safe environment -

We teach our children the importance of that sense of Islamic responsibility in our care for each other in both theory and practice - our school-fundraised allotment means children can practice those green-fingered skills that require so much patience, understanding and faith. As part of our holistic approach to learning and development, children plant and manage the allotments, and the nutritious produce is used by them too! This is all part of the healthy choices we promote at our junk free school - including taking part in sometimes national health and fitness initiatives including our Junior Travel Ambassadors, Fizz Free Feb and Bikeability.

The L in Barnet Hill academy will tell you about our Loving and safe environment -
