London Muslim opposes all faith schools in the UK. They are divisive and segregate kids from an early age on the basis of Religion which is storing up a huge time bomb in this country. I wonder what Jim Fitzpatrick's views are on segregation in faith schools? The Religious industry and establishment need faith schools to perpetuate their existence. What we should be doing is bringing kids of all and no faiths together in good State schools where they develop friendships and understanding of different communities from an early age.
Anyway, I slightly digress, what of course the survey does not mention is the other side of the story where Catholic Schools do a remarkable job, particularly in London of excluding Muslims.
For example take two Catholic schools in West London. Sacred Heart in the borough of Hammersmith where that well known Hammersmith resident Blair sent his daughter, has an admission criteria which proudly states,
no application from a non Catholic family was successful last year. This has been the case for many years.
The London Oratory also in the borough of Hammersmith (where Blair sent his son) has an admission policy which like Sacred Heart accepts applications from non Catholics as a last resort but I'd hazard a guess (although I'm happy to be corrected) there are no Muslims in the London Oratory.
My point about the survey which perhaps Martin's article could also have pointed out is that it only paints a limited picture and omits to mention Catholic schools in areas with a large and growing Muslim population who directly or indirectly have admission criteria that excludes Muslims.
