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


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.
