This is Our School
We love our school and we would love you to see it.
Look in our news section to see details of our Open Doors Days and find out more about the school.
Glasgow Steiner School is the youngest of four Steiner Schools in Scotland, and is one of 31 sister schools in the UK. It opened in 1988 in the Phoenix Centre in Townhead, and had a variety of homes before acquiring its current premises in Yorkhill in 1993. Classes in the school are small and the pupil to teacher ratio is lower than is generally the norm. The class teacher evolves the curriculum to meet the needs of the pupils in their care. The school is a member of the UK Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship.
Within the school, the College of Teachers is collectively responsible for the educational policy of the School; there is no head teacher. The School Management Team is responsible for much of the day to day operation of the school. The School Governance Team (the Board of Trustees) is the body legally responsible for the School. The School Association elects the School Governance Team at its Annual General Meeting.
The School receives no money from central government nor from local authorities. Instead it relies largely on fees which are set according to the level of each family’s income.
Children travel to the School from all over Glasgow and the surrounding area. The school is easily reached from Partick and SECC suburban railway stations as well as Kelvinhall Underground station. The nearest bus stops are outside the Kelvingrove Art Gallery on Dumbarton Road.
We hold regular tours of the school once each month – please contact the School Office for details.
