Praise be to Allah the lord of the worlds. The One who has no beginning and no end and exists without a place. I ask Allah to raise the rank of our master Muhammad and raise the ranks of prophets Adam, Nuh, Ibrahim, Mousa, ^Isa, their righteous followers and companions.

Coordinator Message - Liverpool Secondary
The Secondary School Curriculum at Al Amanah College integrates many aspects of academic, vocational and basic organisational skills. Students are given many opportunities for growth and development through the curriculum as well as the many programs that are offered at the school. Arabic and Religion are vital aspects of the teaching and learning and integrate cross curricular topics in order to enrich understanding and application.
Secondary students are nurtured through many aspects such as being mentored by their peers and later becoming senior mentors which allows for a well-rounded growth and understanding of their own development through the very critical teenage years. Students are given the opportunity to lead through classes, presentations, Friday sermons and becoming key community members.
Students who graduate from the Secondary school discover the skills needed to progress beyond school and into vocations or tertiary education. Communication, organisation and persistence are all important to their growth well beyond the school’s walls.
