School: Michael Mount School
Founded in 1960 by a group of progressive parents,
Michael Mount Waldorf School is a mainstream school that focuses
on educating the whole child using the educational principles
laid down by Dr Rudolf Steiner. We provide an age-appropriate,
child-centred curriculum ensuring that our children experience
wide-ranging subject matter that gives them a real sense of the
world in which they live.
The Waldorf curriculum is an integrated Primary and High School
system with the developmental stages of the child being the
basis upon which subjects are introduced. The Main Lesson, which
takes place in the first two hours of the school day when the
children are at their most attentive, provides an in-depth
exploration of any given subject. Each main lesson block lasts
approximately four weeks, during which time children learn to
approach the topic using all of their senses, to feel, think and
experience the subject, making it their own. Their enthusiasm
for learning can be seen in the quality of the self-made books
that each student creates for the main lessons.
