"It is important that we discover an educational method where people learn to learn, and go on learning from life throughout their whole lives" - Rudolf Steiner
A Steiner Waldorf education is a unique, deeply beneficial experience that will enable your child to be practically and emotionally confident as well as academically successful – to engage fully with the world and to see challenges as opportunities.
At Cambridge Steiner school children acquire all the areas of knowledge of conventional education (maths, science, literacy, and other subjects on the National Curriculum). But they also gain something extra: a depth of learning, a pleasure in learning and an enhanced capacity for curiosity, compassion and creativity.
Waldorf school media policies have been an issue on the front burner since Waldorf schools and media have been around. Now, with the rapidly increasing use of media by children and families in school, at work and at home, the topic takes on even greater importance.
Filmaker Paul Zehrer has produced an excellent video for the Marin Waldorf School on media and how it touches children's and families' lives: http://www.waldorftoday.com/2012/07/media-and-waldorf- education/
The Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship recently commissioned ITN to make a short film to look at some of the key features of a Steiner School, see the film below:
We operate a bus between Cambridge City and School. Our school bus currently runs from Newnham, with various stops depending on family requirements, arriving at school at 8.25 am and makes the return journey back to Cambridge at 3.00pm
Come to an open morning and find out how we make this a reality for children aged 1 to 12.

The very small print: what is Cambridge Steiner School like? In a few words, what we aim to be is: child focused, fun, educational, enriching, nurturing. Kindergartens, parent and child, early years education, nursery, toddlers, primary school. The more children learn and know, the more they find out that there is yet to learn and to know. Every child is different, and learns in their own way. Cambridge Steiner School is situated on the Cambridge side of Fulbourn, Cambrigdeshire, East Anglia, England, UK. The nearest airport is London Stansted, which is about 30 minutes away by car. People come to the school from: Norwich, Market Harborough, Leicester, Diss, Newmarket, Ely, Huntingdon, Peterborough, Bedford, St. Neots, Bury St. Edmunds, Thetford, Ipswich, Bishop’s Stortford, Stansted, Stevenage, Saffron Walden, and the many villages surrounding Cambridge (Histon, Cottenham, Coton, Fulborn, Milton, Oakington, Girton, Grantchester, Impington, Teversham, Waterbeach, Bar Hill, Comberton, Willingham, Bourn, Great Shelford, Babraham, Whittlesford, Bottisham, Swaffham Bulbeck, Swaffham Prior, Balsham, Godmanchester, St Ives, Madingley, Caxton, Etlisley, Great Gransden, Little Gransden, Meldreth, Melbourn, Duxford, Wickham, Thurlow, Teversham, Wilbraham, Landbeach, Hardwick, Caldecote, Barton and Abington).
