Who we are

The Islamic Circles Supplementary School (ICSS) is an entirely volunteer run supplementary school that operates in the London Boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets. The school is open to children of all backgrounds and faiths and we strongly believe that our students (from a range of ethnic backgrounds) need to be encouraged to integrate into British society, and our volunteers play an important part in this as role models.

Our aim is not to replace but to supplement the work already being done by the local schools by providing additional support in the core curriculum subjects.

What sets us apart is that we also aim to be an integral part of the local community. We provide active role models for the students.

We not only support education, but also contribute to community cohesion by being involved in local events based on our strong links with the Froud Centre and the Parish of St Michael's.

Our volunteers are as diverse as the community around us - doctors, accountants, solicitors, and local businessmen being just some examples of the various backgrounds we hail from.
