There is a Guru Nanak Academy for High school students in Smethwick and there is a Nishkam High on Soho Road. There is also a new primary school named Anand Primary which is gonna open in Wolverhampton next year or so.

If ghosts existed they would probably be lost souls seeking peace and would still be a part of Wahegurjis creation so why wouldn't they be welcome in his or her Darbaar?

I used to live there many years ago.

There are lots of Sikhs in B'ham - there are a decent number of Sikh kids in most schools. Avoid schools that are sullah dominated - not an issue in Great Barr though.

Out of interest - why not just choose a school with good academic records? I would reccommend Sutton Girls and QMGS - both easily within reach from you via public transport if the kids will be travelling themselves. Consider the private sector if your finances allow.

I have a similar question for Slough / M4-Corridor. Can somebody recommend me a good Grammar school Secondary for Girls, How is KHALSA SECONDARY SCHOOL, SLOUGH, I know it is not a Grammar school, but how good it is academically - I am more than happy to consider KHALSA SECONDARY SCHOOL, SLOUGH as compared to a GRAMMAR School if it is not S****h dominated and is good a academically, and there is sufficient teaching of Gurbaani/Punjabi etc.

Have you considered Slough Grammar School, Langley Grammar School and Herschel Grammar School? These three are all in/near Slough. Tiffin Girls' School in Kingston is a bit further away but is also a good local grammar school. These schools have good reputations locally, you should also check out the websites of all these schools (and also any other Sikh schools) and read the latest Ofsted report and see what ratings the schools got.

All the above are in consideration, in addition to Kendrick Grammar School in Reading, and Watford Grammar School for Girls, as we plan to move near about that area in 6 months time. But the point is these above Grammar schools will not teach Punjabi / Sikhism, which I believe will be taught in Khalsa Secondary school, any comment?

As far as I am aware, Khalsa Secondary School in Slough is due to open in September 2013? At the moment there is only a primary school I think. I do remember that recently consultations were being carried out and local residents were being asked their opinions regarding the opening of a new Sikh school which will be in the village of Stoke Poges. Admission will start from this September. I got this info from the website.

There's also Guru Nanak Sikh Academy in Hayes. I just read their latest Ofsted report from 2008 and it was graded Outstanding (grade 1) in all sections. Check out their website and I've also attached the Ofsted report to this post.

Thanks Bhaaji.

You know of good streets around Slough and Hays to move to (if I tell you indirectly, where we don't want to move, and if you know what I mean) ...

    • Moat this stuff is created by man. Swine flu was created by man and the way they run pig farms. And then they blame tge pigs.  Same with HIV/aids   they created that with their dodgy experiments gone wrong.  Cancer makes them billions of pounds a year so they wont give the cure away, they already know the cure  but it's become a business for them.   
    • What proper does my head in is paintings of old Singhs that have the 'modren' khanda symbol on their dastaars and jhanday, I mean, a little historical research wouldn't kill an artist.......
    • yh painting isn't accurate, I'd imagine harmandir sahib was a simply brick structure back then. In those dark times sikhs had no time  to create a beautiful building, with local muslims, mughals and afghans hunting sikhs down from all direction. plus around this time many sikhs had gone and started living in forest areas, near rivers and rajasthan.  there was another painting on mansha singh swimming towards harmandir sahib, cant find it online though. cant find absolutely anything about him online.   i had been looking for his name since the day i posted this, i was gnna give up yesterday and then i asked guru gobind singh ji what his name was and around 3 mins later i came across this painting. 
    • It should be noted that Harmandir Sahib didn't have the gold covering that it is now famous for, at the time. Maharajah Ranjit Singh had that put on at a much later date (and in obviously better circumstances for Sikhs in Amritsar!). 
    • I have some relative that have come over to UK on sponsership from India. They are looking for empolyment but dont also have much qualifications. They are female btw. Not sure what is the best way for them to get a good job. Apart from obvious retail which does not pay much. other ideas I thought about is factory job. ie probably in southall where they can speak punjab to other people as they dont have good english which is something they prefer as dont feel comfortable working in a place that they will be the only asian/indian. Any ideas to get a well paid job for them?. I doubt they can secure this without qualifications. ie a levels, degree ect though.  Not sure how to guide them career wise. My aim is to get them ready and be more employable.
