In preparation for life

The Steiner Waldorf approach to education is both innovative and insightful. Our pupils are well-balanced as individuals and develop a general enthusiasm for learning, whatever the context might be. With over a hundred years of experience to draw on, the education is well-proven and central themes of innovation and enquiry ensure that it remains at the forefront of contemporary education in a fast-changing world.

Michael Hall is a widely respected learning organisation, actively educating over 400 pupils whilst also providing an established teacher-training course. We are the longest-running Steiner Waldorf School in England.

Our curriculum is broad and rich and the outcomes for our students are for life. The education that we offer enables our pupils to mature in a balanced way; innovative and rigorous academic education is combined with the development of impressive human qualities. These human qualities promote purposeful engagement and, more than anything else, they ensure that our pupils take up meaningful and fulfilling roles that contribute in a positive way to our rapidly-unfolding future.

Your Child’s Journey

We aspire to develop responsible, creative and free thinking young people who will contribute with vision and purpose to society and a sustainable environment. Our education is based on the pedagogical insights of Rudolf Steiner. Central to his insights is the question: what does it really mean to be a human being, living within the broader context of our contemporary world? Our education responds with three overarching purposes: to develop clear thinking analytical skills, to inspire the motivation and perseverance to fulfill our aspirations, and to cultivate an appreciation of beauty which enriches our inner landscape.
