Learn the Gujarati Language
SATURDAY GUJARATI SCHOOL
The Gujarati School was founded at the old Temple premises at Vaughan Road, Harrow and was one of the first to be established in the UK. It has been running from the new Temple from March 1997 moving successfully to the purpose built Education Building in Spring 1999.
The School currently has 386 students spread out between two sessions and has 25 members of staff. Beginners start at the basic level of Ankodi, then proceeding to Balpothi, Standard 1, Standard 2, Standard 3, Standard 4 and onto GCSE. We follow the syllabus set by the Examining Board. On average the class size is 12-15 students per teacher.
We have been an approved GCSE Examination Centre of Cambridge (Centre No. 12767) since May 2002. Last academic year (summer 2010) we had 18 students who sat for their GCSE exam each receiving excellent pass marks (4A*; 6As and 6Bs and 2Cs).
All the teaching staff at the school are experienced, trained and are encouraged to improve teaching standards. In-house training is given for any new procedural/regulatory updates, covering resource development and management, for classroom control, promotion of learning and general professional approach. Many of our post GCSE students have come back to the School to join our existing dynamic teaching team.
The Enrolment day for new students will be Saturday 2nd July 2011 (10.00 am to 12.00pm). Those interested in placing their child/children must attend during either session. Please note that we do not take students mid-way through the term and unfortunately we do not keep waiting lists. The minimum age of students must be 7. You will be handed an application form to fill in, please note forms are not available before this date.
We encourage our students to take part in the Temple activities and include in our teaching some basic cultural and religious events and topics.
Please note that the School's phone number is 020 8909 9389 (Ext.239) (during school hours - 10am to 3pm).
