‘Receive the child with reverence, Educate with love, Relinquish in freedom.’
With an approach rooted firmly in the educational principles of Rudolf Steiner, we aim to ignite a life-long love of learning by fostering the child’s natural curiosity for the world around them, and inspiring their innate love, connection, and respect for nature.
We aim to create an unhurried, holistic, and creative learning environment where we address the whole child in thinking, feeling, and doing. Cultivating physical wellbeing, a rich inner life, creativity, and joy in learning.
Our ethos understands the human being to be grounded not only in human culture but also in the natural world, as well as the spiritual world,and that it is essential for this connection with the earth and nature to be fostered while at school.
We wish our children to be confident, creative, free-thinking young people with a strong sense of self and an innate belief in the importance of their place in the world.
Our ethos understands that the qualities referred to here can only flourish within a framework of clearly agreed rules and boundaries which are respected, supported, and upheld by teachers, children, and parents alike.
