Bristol Steiner School
Where education is a journey, not a race

At Bristol Steiner School we believe that:

  • Education is a journey, not a race
  • Play is the serious work of early childhood
  • Learning takes place with hands, heart and head
  • By protecting the right to childhood we are creating abilities for life


School facts

  • The school has developmental provision for a range of ages.
  • In the main school, children are aged from 6 to 14 years old and plans are in progress to open an upper school for older children.
  • We have a kindergarten in Cotham which focuses on developing social, imaginative play based learning for children from 0 to 7 years old.
  • There is a focus on the social wellbeing of classes. When children look forward to going to school, have a love of learning and enjoy a social life, discipline problems tend to be less frequent and less serious.
  • Children of different ages mix and play together and there is a peer support system in place.
  • The Bristol Steiner school is for mainstream pupils; it is not a special needs school. There are nearly 900 Steiner schools worldwide. It is the largest and fastest growing independent school system in the world.

The Bristol Steiner school uses a curriculum which is structured to respond to the developmental needs of children, and to provide them with the skills they need to become balanced, well-rounded individuals. As well as academic skills, the children acquire a sensitive and caring interest in the cultural and natural worlds.
