About Hebden Bridge School

We opened in Hebden Bridge on September 5th, 2016 as an educational community working to create a mindful enviornment for learning. We believe that everything in life is inter-connected and integrated. It is our mission to understand how this works, how we are part of nature and how we can learn to live sustainably and creatively in it.

We have a four-day-flexi-time school where you can choose to do the number of days you want. We foster optimum receptivity to learning through yoga and meditation, democratic decision making and cross-subject learning. Small class sizes, never more than 15, enable closer teacher-student relationships. For us the “classroom” is an exciting learning place which also includes the natural world.

The learning environment, combined with the excellence of our teachers, helps our students succeed at whatever path they choose to take including GCSEs. To keep the flame of learning alive both teachers and students need to be constantly challenged. Soulful creativity is at the centre of all that we do, and we are all learners here. We hope that children will leave our school with a sense of purpose and confidence in themselves as unique human beings ready to break new ground in their path through life.
