The SKLPC Gujarati School currently has over 200 pupils, attending classes that cover curriculum study from beginners to GCSE level. During the first year, students are mainly taught through oral work and are slowly eased into learning the alphabet. Sounds and vowels are then introduced in the second year of learning. This is preparation for the students so that they can pick up skills of reading and writing. This then sets a firm foundation for these vital skills needed for the final GCSE exam.
Staff at the Gujarati school cover the OCR syllabus provided by the examining body and are qualified and fully trained for the position they hold. As with other GCSE examinations the Gujarati GCSE is a two year course.
Balmandir classes start at the age of 3.5 up to 5 years old. These classes place more emphasis on oral teaching techniques accompanied with practical and fun work to keep the children interested.
Beginner’s classes range from age 6 to 15 and set the foundation for students with alphabet, sounds and introduction of simple vocabulary.
GCSE & Pre GCSE classes are aimed to prepare students for passing their GCSE by practising past papers and oral questions. We also promote students sitting their GCSE exams at the age of 14 and 15 if they are ready.
Adult classes are becoming increasingly popular with young adults and parents that have missed the chance to learn Gujarati at a younger age.
