The School’s curriculum is based on the insights into child development of the Austrian Scientist, philosopher and educationalist, Rudolf Steiner(1861-1925) His principle is to educate the whole child head hands and heart thorough a curriculum which strengthens body and soul and where the subjects taught are linked to the phases of child development. His work has lad to the foundation of over 950 schools, 1500 early years centres and 60 teacher training centres, all over the world.
Children are in the world of creative play in the Kindergarten until their 6th year when they enter Class 1 From class 1 through to class 8 pupils keep the same class teacher fostering a sense of community and continuity. The school day is based around the main lesson of two hours each morning allowing extensive
study and exploration of a topic for several weeks at a time (after the morning break), Specialist teachers give lessons in languages, music handwork and other areas as the children move through the school.
