My story

Alder Bridge School is the first Steiner-Waldorf School in the Thames Valley area of the UK. Our Kindergarten takes children from age three to six years, and our School has offered education for children from age 6 to 11 (Steiner-Waldorf Classes 1 to 5), now extending to Class 6.

Each Steiner-Waldorf school has its own character but they share a highly structured curriculum that is applied flexibly to meet the needs of the children, based on a profound respect for the individuality of every child. Steiner-Waldorf Schools have a unique teaching approach to education. The healthy development of the child is fostered through the head, heart and hands. The education of the child is largely the responsibility of the Class Teacher. The activities are appropriately structured to the age of the children ensuring that children are actively engaged in the education. There are healthy and natural developmental targets with careful consideration of each child's needs and the gifts that they bring. All Steiner-Waldorf Schools base their teaching on this well thought out methodology.

We recognise that each child has something special to bring to society. The broadly based curriculum ensures there is a subject in which every child can shine. The children understand that every child's input is of value and the class becomes an extremely cohesive and socially aware group.

The reason for our appeal is that, as an independent charity school, not following the national curriculum, we are not funded by the government and therefore rely on fees from parents, many of whom struggle to manage these.

The school wishes to bring this education to any who choose it and would therefore prefer not to have to charge those who do.

Any contributions to Alder Bridge Steiner-Waldorf School will help to bring this wish closer to being possible.
