Finnish language and culture in Kingston-upon-Thames

Our school is part of a global network of part-time Finnish schools. Our aim is to teach the Finnish language and culture to children as well as adults. Our students usually have a parent or grandparent of Finnish origin or they come from Finnish families living in the Greater London area for work reasons.
See page: Admissions for instructions how to join in to the school activities.

We meet at Tiffin School (see "Our Location" page for directions) for two hours every other Saturday morning during term time - see the Calendar page for school times/dates and details of other events. We have a cafeteria and we run a small library with books in Finnish language.
