King Fahad Academy
It is a registered charity under English law and the chairman of the Board of Trustees is HRH Prince Mohammed Bin Nawaf Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud.
The school was founded in September 1985 by the authority of King Fahad Bin Abd Al-Aziz Al-Saud with the aim of providing a high standard of schooling for the children of Saudi diplomats, Arab Muslims and the local community in London.
In February 2007, the school was featured on BBC's Newsnight programme. The school's director, Dr. Sumaya Aluyusuf, defended the use of Saudi textbooks describing religions other than Islam as "worthless" and comparing their adherents to pigs and monkeys. The books were later edited, and the controversial descriptions removed.
