School History

Imam Shafi (Rah) Matriculation Higher Secondary School was established on 7th Nov 1973 as a primary school in Adirampattinam, Thanjavur District of Tamilnadu. The objective of starting this school was to impart quality education to the students and imbibe Islamic values among them.

Though there was a college, a government high school, madrasas for men and women in Adirampattinam, the beneficiaries were very less. In the absence of a quality educational institution at primary level, many young children were out of school and their future was going bleak.

To address the above need, few youngsters with a great vision, to name few Haji M S Tajudeen, Haji A Shaik Hadhi B.Sc., Haji A Syed Ali Maraikayar and Haji Saifudeen started this institution at the residence of NMK Shahul Hameed Maraikayar in Kittangi street of Adirampattinam. The first teacher was Mrs Fathima Bi. The school started with a modest strength of 9 students, a teacher, 3 benches, a black board and a bullock cart.

The school has now grown by Allah’s grace into a Higher Secondary School wherein around 1400 students study and 80 teachers serve and benefit out of this. The school has good
infrastructure, laboratories, library, Audio Visual halls, playground and transport facilities.

In 1976, as the strength of the school was growing, it was shifted to a location called Hasan Radio Park. In 1977 the Adirampattinam Educational Trust was formed under the societies act and the school was brought under this trust.

In 1985 the school was upgraded into a Matriculation school with tireless efforts of the trustees. In spite of all these efforts the girls were discontinuing their studies after primary level of education and the reason quoted was that there are no separate classes for boys and girls. To address this, a new campus was developed on the Pattukottai Road and a new building was constructed with 3 floors.

In 1997, the school was upgraded into a Higher Secondary School. To bring educational awareness among the people, especially among women, the trust conducted Educational Conferences in 1988, 1999 and 2019. To encourage sports, many tournaments were conducted. In 2015, due to increased strength, a new primary block with 3 floors was constructed. There are many philanthropists (who didn’t want to be named) who supported us in this 47 year long journey. May Allah reward them immensely for their Ikhlas and pious intentions.

To imbibe Islamic values and character building 8 Alims and 6 Alimas are now employed and Deeniyat is taught from Primary classes itself. Hifz academy was started in the year 2018 and by Allah’s grace within 2 years, 2 of our students have become Hafiz e Quran without interrupting their school education. More are expected to become, Insha Allah.

In 2018 a multi purpose Audio Visual Hall (Ibn Al Haitham Hall) for boys and in 2019 a similar Audio Visual Hall for girls (Fathima Fihriyya Hall) were developed. For Primary sections, a safe and secure play area, Al Atfaal was developed and during this lockdown (due to pandemic) the school renovated its library.
