Rustam Goes Global

Celebrating Rustam’s response to lockdown

Who we are?

Founded in 1981, Rustam is not just a well-established centre for Persian learning from primary to GCSE and A-level standard, but a community that celebrates our students’ Anglo/Persian identities and gives them opportunities to grow and shine together as young people.

Registration Day


Whilst we are proud of our online learning experience during lock-down and are prepared to continue this if need be, we are also hoping to start the 20/21 academic year back at Fortismere School, providing it is safe to do so.

If you would like to secure a place for your child/children in advance, you can find our more about fees and complete the enrollment form HERE

Learning through lock-down


Like many others COVID 19 took us by surprise, but we adjusted quickly, adapting to remote teaching and new technologies. We are proud of all our staff, parents and students for rising to the challenge, not missing a day of teaching and continuing to nurture and develop our students and care for our community.

Over Summer we will be reviewing our successes and learning, whilst following the developing guidance to make sure we are prepared and able to offer the best learning and community experience from September 2020.
