Brighton Steiner School

Our School

Brighton Steiner School, founded in 1984, is an independent co-educational school for children aged 3 to 16. Based on the insights into child development by the Austrian scientist and philosopher Dr.Rudolf Steiner, we provide a proven and established alternative to mainstream education as well as offering GCSEs to our Upper School students.

See our current class 10 pupils GCSE Art exhibition here.

Vision, Aims and Ethos

The work of the teachers is inspired by the wisdom and contemporary relevance of Rudolph Steiner’s educational philosophy and how it prepares your child for the changing modern world.

We aim to give your child:

  • Eternal values
  • Self confidence
  • A love of learning
  • The ability to work with others
  • Enduring and practical skills
  • Open and tolerant attitudes
  • Spiritual freedom
  • Creativity

The task of the education at Brighton Steiner School can be summarised as:

  • Fostering a healthy development in your child
  • Enabling your child to reach their full potential
  • Helping your child to develop the skills they need to contribute to society

A Child’s Journey

The focus of Steiner Waldorf education is to educate the whole child, emphasising not only the intellectual development of the child, but equally on developing the child’s artistic and emotional feelings. In this way we aim to allow the child’s potential to unfold, allowing them to grow into a self-motivated adult.
