Between 14 and 16 years of age, pupils work towards a range of accredited courses. These are delivered in a manner which embraces the rich Steiner pedagogical practices such as ‘main lesson’ periods, phenomenological/experiential approaches and supporting learning through creative and active means. Throughout this time the children continue to have access to Games, Music, Landwork, Art, Craft and Handwork, as well as being able to opt to explore Computing and Programming.
Key Stage 4 students (ages 15 to 16)
From September 2016 our Key Stage 4 qualifications offer includes English Language, English Literature, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Spanish, Drama, Music, Craft and Art. Our Qualifications Policy encourages most students to work towards 7 or 8 qualifications to include English, Maths and Science. However, we have clear pathways to ensure we work in partnership with students, parents and outside agencies, where appropriate and ensure students sit the qualifications best matched to their abilities, well-being and the requirements of their post-16 choices. We also commit to pursuing these qualifications for the learning which they hold. All Upper School staff work hard to ensure students’ well-being and love of learning are not sacrificed in the pursuit of grades and that we celebrate our young people for their unique progress and development.
Life After School
Through the diverse and structured curriculum, students leaving Class 10 at the age of 16 will have received a robust series of learning opportunities and experiences, as well as the range of accredited qualifications detailed above.
The vast majority of our pupils continue into further education at one of the local Hereford Colleges/Sixth Forms where their openness and interest in learning and life is welcomed as are their social abilities. Our careers officer is David Mace and can be contacted at this email address:

Pupils go on to work in all walks of life and we keep a database of the progression of past pupils which is available on request.
