History of the School

Madni Muslim Girls School was established on 23 March 1987 in a back to back house on Scarborough Street. 

As the school expanded and pupil numbers increased temporary accommodation in the form of portakabins were placed in the grounds.

The images show the portakabins and the old school building on Scarborough Street.

As years went by the trustees wanted to expand the current provision both to meet demand and because the porta kabins were becoming dilapidated.  The school purchased the adjoining land and construction started circa 1990.

The land was purchased in 1987; the site was an old mill and tyre factory.

The Foundations were laid in 1991 by the late Hafiz Patel of Dewsbury. A construction project of this size would take time to complete and Alhamdolilah finally in July 1999 the building was ready to move into. The first purpose built Muslim Girls School building was completed.

Students started the new academic year in September 1999 in the new building

In March 2017 the school celebrated 30 years of success, to mark this important milestone the school rebranded in September 2017, with a change of name and uniform. The school name was changed to Madni Academy to better reflect the all through school.

…Watch this space to see the school progress even further over the years Insha Allah…
