The purpose of the Finnish Schools is to support bilingual children’s language learning and the expatriate children about Finnish culture.
The Finnish Schools strengthen the Finnish identity of those living in Britain, especially the identity of children of British-Finnish families. The Finnish Schools are important cultural hubs for all local Finns, Finnish-British families, and friends of Finland.
Currently there are around 20 Finnish Schools operating in the United Kingdom and their sizes vary from ten pupils to almost one hundred pupils. All in all, there are approximately 500 pupils, 200 adult learners, and 70 teachers in the Finnish Schools in the UK.
Finn-Guild has a key role in maintaining and developing the Finnish Schools, and it functions as the umbrella organisation for all Finnish Schools in the UK.
