What the school says...

Steiner Waldorf education recognises that every child is unique. For 77 years Wynstones has focused on enhancing each individual child’s strengths with a rich, creative curriculum that carefully meets the growing child's developmental needs. We strive to guide pupils to become unprejudiced, well-informed, confident and creative young people who are responsible and practical contributors to society.

We believe that it is not only what we learn that matters, but when and how we learn. Children pass through markedly different life stages and a Steiner-Waldorf education provides a coherent curriculum that takes its cues from the child’s needs at each life stage. Our approach develops faculties rather than delivers information, respects the essential nature of childhood, and encourages a lifelong love of learning.

At Wynstones we are more than just a school. We are a strong community of pupils, teachers, families and friends. Our education acknowledges the vital role of parents and other carers and we work to build effective parent-teacher partnerships. We have in our school community third generation pupils following in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents.

As one of the fastest growing educational movements in the world, we invite you to come and visit our school.

Wynstones offers a Steiner Waldorf education from pre-school through to university entrance. Your child can enjoy a happy and secure education, free from the unsettling experience of changing schools

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
