Education that makes a difference.

Waldorf is an holistic education with a creative, developmentally appropriate and academically rigorous approach. It aims to develop a child's emotional, spiritual, physical and academic potential equally. We call this 'Head, Heart and Hands' and through this approach we help children to be happy at school and develop the life skills they will need to thrive.

Schools are inclusive and non-selective. An interdisciplinary curriculum uniquely interweaves artistic and physical activities with academic learning including science and maths. Teaching takes into account the distinct stages of child development so that when, how and what children are taught engages with the way they naturally learn. Formal learning starts at age six allowing time for the youngest children to develop through play, imitation and exploration which fosters a sense of wellbeing and emotional resilience. The learning environment is one of warmth, empathy and appreciation which builds confidence without the need for high-stakes testing. In the upper school, a focus on questioning, discussion and research enables Waldorf students to leave school not just with good qualifications but equipped to be creative, curious, collaborative thinkers, strong communicators and imaginative innovators. Waldorf education prepares them for life in the widest sense.

They are engaged and excited about school

We've been delighted with the Waldorf approach to education. We live in London and our two children, now 12 and 14, have been with their school since their primary years and truly love their experience.

The holistic approach coupled with the academic depth given to learning means they are always engaged and excited about school and feel a real drive and ownership of their progress. Whilst both have very different personalities and styles of learning, they are both thriving in their Waldorf school and we're excited that they will be able to progress on to university with a recognised Waldorf qualification.

Our Children Truly Love School.
