Friends of Rabia
All that we do is designed to assist all our students to live their lives according to the values of self-discipline, consideration, kindness and shared respect for all people regardless of differences. These fundamental values underpin our Muslim faith and our British society.
The school aims to celebrate all that faith has to give and instil a sense of elation at being part of the local and wider community. We have an inclusive approach to faith and a sense of community, welcoming people of all faiths and none and recognising that we are all part of, and contributing to, something far greater than ourselves.
We place immense prominence on character development – promoting values such as respect, care, tolerance, self-discipline and love for each other. We promote an ethical lifestyle, enabling our learners to feel empowered to fulfil their responsibilities to themselves, their families, wider humanity and the environment around them.
We want to get all our students to become high achieving, wholly engaged citizens in multi-cultural 21st century Britain. We want to help our Muslim boys and girls to delve into how they can utilise their Muslim beliefs and values in their everyday lives as dedicated members of British society. We want them to become model British citizens, inspired by their faith to uphold fundamental British values, reject extremism in any form and to prosper as part of British society. We want them to make a genuine and determined contribution and, by their actions, to demonstrate the best of what the Muslim faith can contribute to British life and culture.
To be the role models of tomorrow !
THE BISHOP OF BEDFORD VISIT
BELOW: EXCERPT FROM THANK YOU LETTER FROM THE RIGHT REVEREND RICHARD ATKINSON OBE
Sheikh Mirza Zubair Akbar Head Teacher, Rabia School 326-340, Dunstable Road, Luton LU4 8JS
Dear Sheikh Zubair,
I write this to thank you very much for your hospitality during my recent visit to your School on 22nd March 2016. Thank you for your warm welcome and for sharing your concerns, hopes and aspirations of being in Luton.
Our brief but significant meeting was indeed an opportunity to talk about issues of shared concern. It was also a time of sharing our condemnation of the latest violence and prayers for world peace.
Visits like these, for strengthening our relationships and further widening the friendly dialogue opportunities for our respective communities, ought to become a part of our life in Luton. Despite the efforts of some groups and individuals to drive us apart, let us remain committed to get to know and understand each other, and celebrate milestones in each other’s lives and communities.

Proud of Britain Project
Rabia have taken part in a major project to celebrate the benefits and blessings of living in the UK. Each student carried out research, then worked in small groups to prepare a short talk, and the whole school assembled so that everyone could learn from each other.
Project leader Ustaad Sabir said “Students have investigated Britain’s contribution to the world, such as famous scientists and inventors, Britain’s spreading of major sports like football; examined the country’s NHS service in detail; and described the historic development of human rights and democracy since Magna Carta.” The students also looked into ethnic diversity and religious liberty.
“ I learnt about democracy, UK law and about individual liberty and mutual respect; and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs ”
“ I learnt that my Muslim faith and British society are underpinned by the same values. I am inspired by my faith to uphold British values, and prosper as part of British society “
