In 1998 a group of parents started a Steiner-inspired toddler group in the front room of one of the parents houses. From this emerged a kindergarten, which formally opened a couple of mornings a week in January 2003 in St Augustines Church Hall in the north of the City.

Also in January 2003, a group of kindergarten parents set about the considerable task of developing a Steiner school for children from age 7 upwards.  This group were instrumental in finding larger premises in Bowthorpe Road to the west of the city for the kindergarten in September 2004. This premises was also a church hall, but had more facilities and space. In September 2005, the lower school for pupils age 7 opened; the first class had just 3 pupils in it.

At that very first meeting of the ‘school founding committee’ in January 2003, a vision was voiced and subsequently upheld in all the years that followed. The vision that the School should provide a Steiner education for all of the compulsory school years.
