Tauheedul Islam Girls School, in Blackburn, scored top in England for pupil progress. Its “tough love” ethos has earned it a reputation so high that only those girls who live within a couple of miles have any hope of gaining a place.
It opened in 1984 as an independent school serving its local community and became a voluntary aided school in 2005-6. An on-site sixth form opened last September and girls are currently applying for top universities including Oxford. It has 770 pupils with the capacity to grow to 800.
