Bromyard Avenue, London, W3 7HD.
King Fahad Academy (KFA; Arabic: أكاديمية الملك فهد بلندن) is an independent school in Acton in the London Borough of Ealing that provides an Islamic-based education for children aged from 3 to 18. The school is on the former site of the now closed Faraday High School (closed 1984).
In February 2007, the school was featured on BBC's Newsnight programme. The school's director, Dr. Sumaya Aluyusuf, defended the use of Saudi textbooks describing religions other than Islam as "worthless" and comparing their adherents to pigs and monkeys. The books were later edited, and the controversial descriptions removed as they were found to not adhere to Islamic beliefs of equality and peace.
