Steiner Academy Bristol approved in the last round of ‘free school’ Applications!

To open in September 2014, the Academy will be the first inner-city, state-funded Steiner school in the UK and the third Steiner free school to be approved under the ‘free school’ programme. The school will grow slowly, with an opening cohort of 78 pupils (Kindergarten, Class 1 and class 6), rising to two classes every year, with a total of 624 pupils by 2022.

The Academy will make a major contribution to the shortage of school places in Bristol, with demand for opening places in the first two years already up to five times oversubscribed.

The school are currently recruiting for a principal and will be recruiting teachers and other staff in 2014. For more information on admissions and recruitment, see or contact
