Our Steiner/Waldorf education and way of learning is deeply embedded in everything we do and widely recognised. Our aim is for our education to be structured, creative and successful. 

Key responsibilities

  • Be a leader of learning: planning, promoting, leading and participating in teacher learning and development in regard to student learning

Key outcomes

  • Create and lead effective schoolwide systems that reflect the school’s special character and Y0-13 reality
