What the school says...

As a Steiner-Waldorf school, we are proud to provide an education which works with every aspect of the child intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual - allowing them to grow into confident, creative and free-thinking adults. While nurturing a childs imaginative and cognitive capacities we are also enabling them to become socially and economically responsible citizens.

Kindergarten (ages 3 - 6) provides a 'home-from-home' where a child can explore their relationship with the world through imaginative play, and develop key skills through meaningful work such as baking, gardening and seasonal crafts.
Upon entering the Lower School at age 6, a child begins their formal education with a curriculum that is rich, broad and balanced. Key subjects are taught in thematic blocks of 3 - 4 weeks, allowing time for a deep understanding to develop and a love of learning to be nurtured.

As the only Steiner-Waldorf school in the Thames Valley, we enjoy a semi-rural setting with easy links to London. Our extensive grounds, including woodland, provide an array of outdoor experiences that are part of the wonder of childhood.
