A Steiner Secondary School

A core aspect of Steiner education is the integration of academic learning with creativity in all its mediums. This education meets the needs of each individual academically, socially and emotionally.  It develops creative thinking and self-confidence as well as practical skills for life. It further supports young people to develop healthily and grow into responsible, wise, resilient and rounded adults who respect themselves and the world in which we live.

The Secondary School started in September 2019. We cater for Classes 7, 8 and 9 which is equivalent to 1st, 2nd and 3rd year in mainstream secondary education. It is also the intention, in longer term, to work towards offering a creative Transition Year Programme, both for our own students and to others from outside schools. Like our fellow Steiner Secondary schools, we welcome enrolment from overseas students in the worldwide Steiner Community who may join us for a term or a year of their Secondary Education.


Subjects taught include: English, Maths, Irish, European Languages, Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), History, Geography, Music, Physical Exercise, Drama, Fine Arts, Social Education, Woodwork, Gardening, Cookery, Bushcraft and more.

Catchment Area

Our catchment area typically includes the towns of Newbridge, Naas, Blessington, Kilcullen, Dunlavin and Baltinglass. We have had pupils in the primary school coming from the counties of West Wicklow, South Kildare, Carlow, Killkenny, Laois and Dublin.
