Slough's Al Iman Institute has won a prestigious national award for the third year running.

The Islamic supplementary education institute was announced as religious education provider of the year for 2020 at the eighth British Muslim Awards ceremony held at the Mercure Piccadilly Hotel in Manchester.

The event was attended by top professionals and businesses from the British Muslim community.

Headteacher Joweria Khera said: “It is an honour to have won this award three year running and to bring it back to school for our students. The students are over joyed and the team is extremely happy. This is a proud moment for us and celebrations will continue for the rest of the year."

Al Iman Institute is a (Saturday only) supplementary education institute based in Langley at St. Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School.

Students recently raised £250 for the international charity WaterAid.

WaterAid representative Sue Alexander paid a personal visit to thank them and explain how the money is specifically used to help the world’s poorest and most marginalized communities have access to clean water, sanitation facilities and basic hygiene.

Mrs Khera said: “We want children to start taking responsibility for the planet and environment around them from an early age, so that they grow up to be responsible citizens of the world and do their bit for preserving natural resources for generations to come.

"Al Iman Institute will continue to support the Water Aid charity by raising funds throughout the year for them."
