Edinburgh Steiner School

Main Lessons

Unique to Steiner Schools, Main Lessons provide every pupil with a broad spectrum of learning experiences throughout their education. Beginning in Class 1 and continuing throughout the 12 years of their education, Main Lessons are topic blocks which are carefully constructed to provide a balance between Humanities, Sciences and Crafts.

The subjects themselves are selected to be appropriate for a particular age group and developmental stage. Several Upper School Main Lessons are now accredited to the Open College Network, providing the pupils with an additional qualification equivalent to a GCSE. A topic normally continues for between three and four weeks and pupils create their own record of the lesson with a beautifully illustrated book.
