We are the UK branch of the largest international Persian school outside Iran with over 16 centres throughout Europe, America and Canada. Our London branch is located in Highgate in north London.
MTO® Persian School was first established in London with a handful of students in 1995. The number of students has gradually been increasing to where we have now had six generations of children going through the primary years of Farsi education with us followed by GCSE exams and are now successful and influential members of their communities.
Our Persian language classes range from year 1 to year 6. The minimum entry age is 6 years and it goes up to 16 years old. Teaching Persian (Farsi) is our primary goal where we focus on the fundamentals of the Persian language in speaking, writing, grammar and its different applications.
We also offer specially designed classes called "Persian One" which caters for students coming from a mixed parental background where the child does not speak Farsi at all, as well as older students who are just beginning to learn Farsi but because of their age, they are much faster in picking up the fundamentals of the language who can then proceed to higher years of the primary years of the school (years 4 – 6) or proceed to our Persian Language GCSE classes directly.
Also, in order to gain a deeper and wider knowledge of the language, our students learn the terminologies of maths and science including numeracy in Persian in years 1 to 3.
At MTO® Persian School, we place a high value on cultural extra-curricular activities in order to familiarise our students with Iranian culture, traditions and their roots.
Through our events and teaching materials, we incorporate aspects of the Persian arts, music, culture and traditions and our students will also become familiar with historical sites, poets, regional accents, costumes, food and much more.
As we pride ourselves for being an all-inclusive community language school, we have students from other Farsi speaking nationals such as Afghan and Tajik backgrounds and in order to celebrate this, we also include their traditional music and dance in our cultural activities and whatever else they can or are willing to add to our programs.
