About Us

At Olive Tree Study, our culture of care and positive relationships provides students with the confidence and independence they need to succeed both inside and outside the school. This is why Olive Tree Study is one of the renowned weekend Islamic schools in the heart of London.

We celebrate this success at Olive Tree Study by providing all children who enter our doors a place to enhance spiritual growth, establish strong moral frameworks, and build upon foundations in Quranic teaching. We place great emphasis on partnership and cooperation between parents, students and staff to ensure each child receives the best possible education.

What we offer

Our aim is for children to understand Arabic language fluently in order for them to access the Quran and sacred knowledge to a much deeper level.

No need to worry about traveling to one of our branches anymore, your child can now benefit from our school by studying online with us. Our Online School is taught by our in-house trained and qualified teachers using our own unique teaching resources. 

At Olive Tree, we invest in the highest quality resources and teachers to guarantee a small student-to-teacher ratio. Our fees are competitive and reflect the high-quality education your child will receive whilst in our school. 

We all want the best for our children, but how do we ensure that they not only survive but also thrive, today and in the future? After all, our children are the most important in our lives.

Your child will learn the tajweed rules in no time with these fun and catchy nasheeds created and produced by us.
