Al Khair is a primary and secondary Islamic school in the heart of East Croydon. The word al khair translates from Arabic into good.

History[edit]

The school officially opened to the public in 2003 and was enrolled with only five pupils. The sports hall was a converted warehouse and the school itself was an office. The founder of the school is leading Islamic Imam, Imam Qasim Ahmad. He is also the founder of the Al-Khair Foundation.

In over ten years, the school has evolved into a fully fledged primary and secondary school, with over 350 pupils.
