What the Good Schools Guide says...

A gentle school which aims to keep children from rushing into adulthood before they’re ready and parents value for ‘creating innovators’. Will not work for every child, nor every parent – both must be tremendously involved. Very difficult to explain a Steiner school without direct experience or attending an open morning - hippy stereotypes abound and you might find a compost bucket resting on a photocopier – yet....

What the school says...

Why Michael Hall? What qualities will your child need to flourish as an adult in todays world? They will need to be articulate, creative, self-reliant, skilled at listening, imaginative and inquisitive. Every lesson at Michael Hall is designed to enhance and develop these qualities in your child. For over 85 years, we have consistently provided an inspirational, rigorous, nourishing educational environment for children from birth to 18 years. We give equal attention to the physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and spiritual needs of your child and the curriculum is designed to work in harmony with the different phases of your child's development. Our experience has shown that learning comes easily and joyfully when it is offered when your child is developmentally ready.
The core subjects of the curriculum are taught in thematic blocks (Main Lessons) and all lessons include a balance of artistic, practical and intellectual content. Whole class, mixed ability teaching is the norm.

All students participate in all the Steiner Waldorf curriculum subjects throughout their school life. The purpose of studying a subject is not to make a student into a professional mathematician, historian, or biologist, but to stimulate and nourish the capacities that every adult needs.

Michael Hall students have a reputation for being well-rounded, balanced individuals who are able to cope with the demands of a fast-changing and uncertain world. Graduates are highly sought-after in further education and in the work place for their confidence, resourcefulness, social responsibility and enthusiasm.

Special Education Needs

The Learning Support Department supports individual pupils with specific learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and children with mild aspergic tendencies. Support may take the form of one-to-one lessons, small group lessons or in-class support. The department screens classes every two years. Following these screenings and after dialogue with the class teacher the department is able to identify those pupils who may require extra support. We also help teachers with IEP writing and differentiating tasks to enable all students to access the curriculum.
