Steiner education is state-funded in many European countries and in four schools in England under the Academy and Free School systems. However, as we do not offer the National Curriculum, we are unfortunately unable to secure state funding in Wales. As a result we have to charge fees.
It is our policy to be as socially inclusive as possible whilst being self-funded, therefore we keep fees as low as we can in order to minimise the financial barrier to attending. We also offer a robust and well taken up Bursary Scheme to help families, who could not otherwise a place at the School.
For these reasons fundraising is fundamental to the School’s existence and our families, teachers and friends run regular fundraising events throughout the year, including our annual Christmas and Summer fairs, School Shop and Craft Group.
There are also a number of ways you can individually support the School:
£3 a month appeal
- Set up a regular donation to our ‘Every Child Bursary Fund’, and from just £3 a month you can help families, who could not otherwise afford it, give their child the gift of Steiner Education. Donate today, and make a difference that lasts a lifetime…
