Muslim Boy Reading at Islamia Primary School

A boy attending Islamia Primary School in London, a state funded, faith-based Muslim religious school, reads the popular book The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, by CS Lewis. The book is well known for its strong Christian symbolism. Islamia Primary School was opened in 1981 as the first full-curriculum Muslim school in the United Kingdom, and has received state funding since 1998. It was founded by Yusuf Islam (who was formerly the pop star Cat Stevens). The school has 210 pupils, has been praised for its students' high exam scores. It has 3,500 children on its waiting list.
