Burns Night cancelled

Regretfully due to low ticket sales we have had to cancel Burns Night.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you and thank you for your support.
We look forward to welcoming you at future school events.

Happy 90th Birthday to us!!!!

We celebrated our 90th birthday today. We are the longest running Steiner Waldorf School in the English speaking world, having started our  life in Streatham, London, in 1924. During the Second War the entire school was evacuated to Minehead in Somerset, after which it moved to its present home at Kidbrooke Park, Forest Row.

Track where our balloons are landing here!

 

 

Teachers, children and parents celebrated by letting off 500 balloons (biodegradeable of course), each with a tag containing the childrens’ message for their School. The balloons and their message will hopefully travel far and wide, with the finder of the one that travels furthest winning a prize!  In addition, celebrations included a verse written especially for the occasion, a song, the planting of an Oak tree with the wishes of all the School community contained deep within its roots and, finally, an enormous cake!

Class 12 students are holding fantastic offers from the first round of University applications!

Well done to those students who have successfully gained offers from a variety of high quality Universities. Durham, Cambridge, Exeter, Bristol, UCL and King’s London have all offered our students places and the students have worked hard (and been well supported) in bringing their applications to fruition. This work has ranged from ‘taster days’, intensive Research and guidance, support with Personal Statements, advice on courses/careers, mock interviews and so forth - what wonderful results!  Now the next stage of the hard work begins to enable the students to fulfil the grade requirements attached to the offers!

Many more applications are in the pipeline and we will keep you posted on the successes of our work in the Upper School

Well done!

Class 8 Project Presentations

On Wednesday the 14th at 7pm the children of Class 8 will be presenting their projects in the Theatre.

From Boxing to House Building and from Lolita Fashion to Cake Decoration, the variety is incredible. What is even more amazing is the standard of skill they have managed to achieve in just three months. I admire them greatly and so will you after viewing their presentations.

Collaborative Charcoal Drawing

“A group of 8 class 9 students did a collaborative charcoal drawing of a winter forest as part of their Black and White Drawing Craft Rotation. This encouraged working together; as well as understanding perspective and atmosphere created by making a large composition together.

Black and white drawing is part of the Steiner curriculum which is unique to Class 9. The guidance given for this points to the importance of order and calm during this period of adolescence where polarities of feeling among the teenagers are strong and in some cases swing wildly. By taking away the colour in these arts & craft lessons, (colour can intensify the feeling realm) we find balance between extremities of light and dark.  Working to connect the many mid tones can be likend to exploring compromise and understanding within the world and our relationships within it.”

Christmas Play tonight 7.30pm

Come and join us on Tuesday 16th December. A free night at the Theatre.

The Coventry Shepherds' play

This year the teachers and Heart of Teaching students will be presenting the wonderful sixteenth century Coventry cycle Shepherds' play - come along at 19.30 on Tuesday 16th December (donations on the door).

As if this was in itself not enough of a departure from tradition, the later performances will also include dramatisation of scenes from the Christmas truce of 1914, the centenary of which comes around this year. The script has been adapted from the many letters written home describing this extraordinary event. We hope to see you all at the performances and look forward to a new tradition of innovation.
