Islamia Primary School, situated at 129 Salusbury Road, London NW6 6PE, is an esteemed educational institution in Queen's Park, London. This voluntary aided primary school is distinguished by its prominence within the local Islamic community. The school offers a curriculum supplemented with classes in religion and Arabic language, adhering to both the national curriculum and Islamic principles.

Established in October 1983 by Yusuf Islam, the school seeks to provide quality education to students between the ages of 4 and 11. It is organized as a two-form entry with approximately 420 pupils and has 210 official places, having a notable waiting list of over 3,500 students.

Currently, the school is led by Head Teacher Shiraz Khan, and Chairman Sofia Moussaui, with Prince Charles having officially inaugurated its voluntary aided status in 2000. In 2013, Islamia Primary School won the Global Peace and Unity Education Award for Excellence, underscoring its commitment to comprehensive education and social values.

The school's expansion underwent a contentious phase, with an £8 million extension approved in December 2010, which would include a new two-storey building. However, this scheme has encountered challenges with community groups and, as of the last information available, has been included in Brent Council's Permanent Primary School Expansion project.

The school is located in the London Borough of Brent and is part of a broader Islamia Branch that consists of the primary school, Islamia Girls High School, and the boys' school, Brondesbury College.
