Welcome to

Steiner Academy Bristol


Steiner Academy Bristol offers an education that is creative, engaging and environmentally conscious. Our vision is for a school in which children can fully experience childhood; think independently, clearly and considerately; observe the world perceptively; and act with creativity, courage and self-determination.

Steiner Academy Bristol will be an all-through school, for children aged 4-16. When the school reaches full capacity it will have 624 pupils in two classes for each year. We currently have around 260 children of both primary and secondary school ages.

The school is based on the St Matthias Campus in Fishponds. These beautiful Victorian buildings and grounds have been in educational use since they were built, and provide a perfect home for our school. The St. Matthias Campus is undergoing a major refurbishment, which will be completed in spring 2017. The school currently occupies the south and west wings of the site along with the theatre and dining hall, and our new sports hall is just coming into use. Full details are on our Location page.

We are part of a group of Steiner Academies, state-funded schools that build on the ideas of Steiner education with a commitment to diversity and accessibility. Our school will be accessible to all, regardless of background, income, ability, faith, gender or any other consideration.

The other Steiner Academies are in Exeter, Frome and Hereford.

Delayed opening

Aug 30, 2014

The opening of the school has had to be delayed until Monday 8th September. Unfortunately the site will not be safe for us to use until then as there have been a number of delays with the work being carried out on site.

Food glorious food!

Jun 10, 2014

We are looking for a supplier to provide our school meals for 2014/15. We're passionate about the importance of food in education, and if you share that passion and would like to get involved then we would love to hear from you...

Teachers wanted!

Dec 21, 2013

We are now recruiting for our first class teachers and kindergarten teachers. These roles are crucial to the success of our school and we will be providing an excellent package of training, support, pay and pensions.

Steiner schools have sometimes been criticised for not giving enough information about Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner's philosophical system.
