School dubbed 'Muslim Eton' closes because no students signed up
by Jeremy Culley
An Islamic girls school labelled the "Muslim Eton" has closed – because no new students signed up.
The school in Burnley opened only in 2010, vowing to provide four-year programmes to girls aged 16 plus so they could become Islamic scholars.
It sparked fury from Christian leaders who warned of right-wing extremism being inflamed and community integration being skewed.
