Cardiff Steiner School is an independent Steiner Waldorf school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18. We offer an inspiring and creative education based on the needs of the whole child – academic, physical, emotional and spiritual.
Steiner Education is the largest and fastest growing independent school system in the world. Schools avoid formal teaching until a child is six and teach Early Years in a family-like setting with an emphasis on creative, experiential and social play. From age 6 up our distinctive, international curriculum integrates arts and academics into a rich, balanced education that ignites a lifelong passion for learning.
Cardiff Steiner School is committed to safeguarding children and young people, we expect all applicants to uphold this. All candidates must have suitability to work with children, and post holders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure Barring Service check.
