Paiwand is pleased to be able to partner with Norbury Primary School in hosting this Saturday School. Our feeder schools, referring twenty students each, are Grange, Weald Rise, Cedars Manor and Vaughan Primary Schools. These partnerships mean that school fees are paid by schools (at a discounted rate), rather than by parents. If you represent a primary school and are interested in referring students to our Saturday School please contact the School Manager on the details provided below.
All of our teachers are Good – Outstanding UK-qualified teachers currently working in local schools. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of each student and to naturally complement their teaching in mainstream school. Teachers are observed termly and regular training provided to ensure quality of provision.

Dari and Pashto Classes
Maintaining the cultural heritage of the Afghan community us a core value of our work. Originally founded as an Afghan charity, we provide high quality and enjoyable Dari and Pashto classes for Afghan students. Lessons are delivered from levels 1 – 5, culminating in preparation for GCSE Farsi for Dari students. Pashto is taught from Levels 1 – 4.

We are happy to provide a free ESOL class for parents catering for Beginner and Intermediate levels. Please phone the School Manager to inquire about remaining spaces.
The charge for the Saturday School is £10 per Saturday per child. Discounts apply for large families.
If your child attends one of our partner schools, your fees may be paid by your school. Please inquire with the Deputy Head or Headteacher of your school to see if your child could be offered a funded space.
