Steiner Education 
Officially Recognised in UK


Published in Detodo/La Optimista, Ibiza’s good news only newspaper.

The first Steiner school opened in Germany almost a century ago. Since then, the network has grown to over 1,000 Steiner schools worldwide; forming the largest group of independent non-denominational private schools in the world.

Based on an educational model developed by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), “Steiner schools aim to provide an unhurried and creative learning environment that nurtures the whole child, giving equal attention to

the physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and spiritual needs of each pupil.”

Steiner education is already state-funded in most European countries as well as in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

In the UK, The Steiner Academy, Hereford, has recently completed its transition from

an alternative independent school, to a state-funded facility, proudly adding the UK

to a growing list of countries officially recognizing a more holistic approach to learning
