Bristol Steiner School: Education is a journey, not a race

The diverse curriculum includes music and forest school

Bristol Steiner School is an independent day school for children from the age of 3 to 11 years. The curriculum is enriched by integrated learning and the relationship between the theoretical and practical aspects of subject matter. Language and oracy play an important part in school life and children participate in activities that enhance this. Mathematics is taught in class and then used across the curriculum in woodwork, handwork and form drawing. Eurythmy is an expressive artform that combines language, music and movement. It is taught throughout the school. Physical education, swimming, music and forest school complement the diverse curriculum.

Strong relationships are nurtured at the school, where teaching and learning are seen as relational activities. Over the course of an education at Bristol Steiner School, pupils will be guided by just two class teachers. A Kindergarten teacher nurtures pupils throughout their early years from the age of 3 to 6 years. A Main School teacher then moves through the years with pupils from the age of 7 to 11 years. Pupils know all of the adults on site by name. Small class sizes promote the wellbeing and self-belief of each child. Education is a journey, not a race.
