Darul Uloom London School, located at Foxbury Avenue, Chislehurst, BR7 6SD, is an educational institution with a history dating back to its establishment in 1988. The school is an independent institution, catering to boys from age 11 to 19 and providing boarding facilities. With a student population of 155, the school boasts a secular curriculum that includes nine subject options under the Examinations board Edexcel. In addition to the secular curriculum, a strong Islamic Studies syllabus is also offered, including Hifz, memorization of the Quran, and an Alimiyyah Course. The school's surroundings are peaceful and attractive, and it is easily accessible. As a private boarding school, Darul Uloom London is a Darul uloom, an Islamic educational institution, with the hope that its students will become imams and leaders serving the Muslim community in the UK and promoting social cohesion in today's multicultural society.

The school has faced challenges regarding safeguarding issues, as evidenced by its history of four Ofsted reports during 2008 to 2018 that culminated in an Inadequate assessment, along with concerns about meeting national minimum standards. However, of particular note, Ofsted reported in January 2020 that the school had met all independent school standards.
