Non-selective Independent School

Learning to love learning

Cardiff Steiner School is a non-selective, independent school in Cardiff for boys and girls aged 3 to 16. Our small, caring and supportive school offers an inspiring and nurturing education based on the needs of the ‘whole child’ - academic, physical, emotional and spiritual. With the Steiner Waldorf curriculum, we draw on a 90-year-old teaching tradition - integrating arts and academics into a rich, balanced education that ignites a passion for learning. We focus not simply on the college your child will attend, but rather the person your child will become: a curious, compassionate, critical thinker ready to meet the challenges of our changing world. more>>
