This Team includes all teachers who teach Classes 8, 9 and 10. The Team meets once a week at 4 pm on a Wednesday, though this will change each year. During the meeting, there is a report from each class and any areas of concern are discussed. The Team is also working on the future development of the Upper School. This includes the needs for the coming year, and into the more distant future with the possibility of developing a Class 11 and 12. The Team is also actively involved in the development of the curriculum and next year class 9 will be taking part in a Europe wide pilot study for the European Waldorf Diploma (EWD). We hope this will eventually see our own Steiner Waldorf curriculum accredited by Edexcel as a viable alternative to GCSEs.
Angela Clark, for the Upper School Support Team.
