New Finance Surgery
Dear Parents,

Following my recent appointment as School Bursar and as part of an ongoing review of our finance policies, we think it would be more efficient if I set aside specific times each week to meet parents/ guardians who wish to discuss school fees.  

The new surgery hours will be Wednesdays from 2.30-3.30pm and Thursdays from 9.30-10.30am.  If you do require a meeting, I would be grateful if you could call or email ( ahead to book a slot, so that I can have all relevant information to hand.  

If a meeting is urgent or you are not able to fit in with these times, I will of course be available to meet outside of these times.  

Helen Smither
School Bursar
Fundraising Thanks
Thank you for your support and generosity during recent Class VII Raffle and Popcorn Sale.

Over £225 was raised by the students.
Dear Community...
From 5 March through 20 March, my beloved son and daughter will both be with me. I need to find a space for the 3 of us together during that time as my own space is too limited.

Can you help?

Very best,

Mrs. Ramelow
Class II Teacher

Former pupil's eutony classes for Steiner School parents
I am a former pupil at the Vrije School, the Rudolf Steiner School of Antwerp / Belgium (1957- 1963).  I have excellent memories of my Steiner primary School education (there was no secondary school in Antwerp at the time).  I am sure it has contributed to giving me a strong sense of myself, a deep grounding in nature, resourcefulness and creativity, and ease in intellectual subjects for which I'll always be grateful.  And so it warms my heart to see this school thriving, and trust the children will do well in the world. 
I am now both an artist, and a eutony teacher in Islington.  At a re-union with my Steiner school mates and teacher a few years ago, I realized that the vast majority of us went into the arts (in the broader sense of the word), the healing professions (from medicine to various therapies), and education.
Eutony is little known here, but you are welcome to look it up at  It is better known on the continent, and widely practised in Germany where it has informal links with Steiner.
Introductory days and weekly classes for the Spring term start at the end of this month.
I'd be happy to apply a 10% concession as a gesture to Rudolf Steiner.
