It's very early days for this project at the moment. The recently formed steering group in Norfolk is busy working on ideas to propose the way forwards, hopefully leading to the set up of a Democratic School. Early thinking is that we do this in stages, finding ways to make the venture sustainable, and we’re currently investigating intergenerational nurseries and forestry teaching. We will see what evolves organically from there..!

What Is A Democratic School?

Imagine learning in an environment where, as a child, you were given as much say in your education as your tutor was.  Democratic schools believe in the ideology of mutual respect and understanding, to represent an education system that benefits every child equally, regardless of his or her learning style and capability.

If you believe that this country needs to look at alternative methods to our standard education system, have experience in the sector, and are interested in joining (or financially supporting) the project, please get in touch
