Our staff enjoy the unique international community and environment of Michael Hall School, that aims to create a culture of mutual respect, tolerance and fraternity. We are committed to continuing professional development of all our staff and to training new teachers.

The Teachers at Michael Hall School are responsible for delivering the Steiner Waldorf curriculum to the students, guiding the children to investigate core subjects such as language, history, maths, science and geography through creativity and imagination. They aim to:

  • Clearly communicate with students, colleagues and parents
  • Commit to each student individually, throughout their years of school
  • Create lively, interactive lesson plans
  • Push themselves to grow and constantly question their teaching methods
  • Push beyond their comfort zones
  • Think outside the box
  • Inspire their students to keep progressing

Our Administration team works together to support the teachers, and the maintenance and kitchen staff work to ensure a smooth functioning of daily operations of the School.

Sarah Stokes


Sarah Stokes brings a wealth of both teaching and school leadership experience with her to her role at Michael Hall School. A teacher with thirty years’ experience, she has worked in numerous schools in London and the South East. She has successfully run three schools in her capacity as Acting Head, Executive Head and as Head Teacher in her most recent school, a leadership role that she held for nine years.

As a parent to four teenaged children herself, Sarah welcomes close communication with her parent community and sees the strong relationships forged between home and school as vital to the wellbeing of every child. 

In addition to her commitment to education – a commitment that continues to evolve and is now being shaped by the rhythms of Steiner Waldorf education – Sarah is a keen crocheter and enjoys spending time in all weathers out on the South Downs with her dog
