MTO Persian School
Our Goal Our primary goal of teaching Farsi starts with the elementary foundations which are taught in the primary years. The principles of learning the Persian language are followed for our young students to learn the fundamentals of the language in speaking, writing, grammar and its different applications. Our aim in ensuring all our students achieve their best in education, they learn Persian as their second language through our specially designed text-books. Our course contents in years 4 to 6 are specifically designed to prepare students to partake initially in GCSE Persian Language and eventually in A-level Persian.
These qualifications will help them further on their career choices when applying for university. Besides teaching Farsi, we also aim to familiarise our students with all aspects of Persian culture and arts and the path to realising this goal starts with introducing and incorporating their countrys different tribal and regional customs and arts into their syllables and extra-curricular activities. The knowledge they acquire and the activities they partake in, will help them find more self-confidence and gradually discover their hidden talents. In the pursuit of this goal, and for the celebration of our Youth Day and Norouz, the arts and various cultural endeavours, such as music, painting, drama and dance are taught, and traditional dishes as well as tribal/regional costumes are introduced and worn by our students and staff.
MTO Persian School is situated in the central building of Highgate Wood School with the use of the classrooms and canteen on the ground and first floor. For safety of our students we have a full-time security guard on site during school operation hours.
