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.

When the school reaches full capacity, Steiner Academy Bristol will be an all-through school for children aged 4-16; with two classes in each year a total of 624 pupils. We currently have around 325 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 has undergone a major refurbishment, which was completed in spring 2017 and includes a science laboratory, craft and art rooms as well as a theatre and dining hall. we also benefit from beautiful grounds and a new sports hall. 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 is accessible to all, regardless of background, income, ability, faith, gender or any other consideration.

The other Steiner Academies are in Exeter, Frome and Hereford

We are consulting on changes to our admissions policy for September 2016 entry. We want to make a few changes which we hope will make for a simpler policy that is more effective in achieving our aim to build a community school.
