The Bristol Steiner School is a beacon for parents seeking a human scale school where childhood is valued and in which a lifelong love of learning may grow.

The school provides pupils with a modern Steiner based education through a transparent and well-structured learning programme that is challenging but not dominated by the need for academic achievement and the stress of targets and tests. Pupils are part of a community in which they are both known and well-known and can thrive and develop the self-confidence and independence vital for success in today’s world. By Year 5 they are well prepared and ready for a successful transition to secondary school.

The central feature of a Steiner education is that it recognises the broader needs of the whole child – academic, physical, emotional and spiritual – and is based on an understanding of the different phases of a child’s development.

The Bristol Steiner School is breaking new ground in providing pupils with a Steiner education that is true to Steiner principles but is updated and relevant to a modern context. In this the school benefits from a modern management structure and experienced leadership team.

Choosing the right school for your child is perhaps the most important decision you will make. A Steiner Education creates a love of learning, sees artistic activity and the development of the imagination as integral to learning, and is respected worldwide for its ability to produce capable young people with a strong sense of self and diverse capacities that enable them to become socially responsible citizens.
