Our distinctive, international curriculum integrates academic, artistic and practical learning into a rich, balanced education.
We offer the Certificate of Steiner Education (NZCSE) in Upper School. The Certificate is the first trans-national, secondary school qualification to be fully based on the Steiner curriculum. It is a valid, alternative secondary school qualification that allows students to progress to further/higher education free from the pressure of GCSE and A level curricula and examinations.
