Made to Measure School from September 2017

Come and join our  wonderful one-day school on Thursdays.

The students self-direct their way through our unique educational programme that integrates the mind and body into an interconnected, creative world of study.

With each child and parent we agree a personalised learning plan to determine how the student prefers to study inside and outside of the classroom.

  • All of our  bespoke cross-subject topics  prepare students for GCSEs.
  • Children are taught in one group of Key stage 3, aged between 9 and 13.
  • All of our teachers are highly-qualified, creative professionals. They are very  experienced with taking children from KS3 up to GCSEs and beyond.
  • Students do daily of yoga and meditation to enhance the capcity for learning and self-management.
  • Students participate in the democractic meetings, learning to find their voice and make decisions collectively.
  • The school day follows the timetable below, every Thursday.
  • Individually tailored tutoring hours are available on other days.
  • Students can be set homework. This is agreed between teachers, students and parents as part of a personalised learning plan. It is up to the students to do it, there is no sanction if they don’t.
  • Parents can take holidays with their children whenever they want.
  • Students can join the group at any time and will be charged pro-rata for the term (from when they join until the end of that term).
  • A school camp will be scheduled in July 2018 for those who wish to come along.
  • Fees for 2017-18.
