On Tuesday 24th November, starting at 7pm, the school will be holding a talk to update parents and other interested people about the new Level 3 School leaving qualification, the Steiner School Certificate (SSC).
Norwich Steiner School is now in it's second year of running the SSC, which is a three year qualification. Pupils have to be at least 16 years old in the academic year when they start the SSC. It is a broad spectrum qualification, with opportunities to specialise in areas of interest. It is more similar to the International Baccalaureate than A Levels, but is based entirely upon the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum. More information about the SSC is available on the SSC page of this website or by contacting the school.
Pupils in our oldest class (age 16-18) are now studying for Level 2 of the qualification and it is still possible for pupils of this age coming from other schools to enrol for the SSC if they are interested to do so. Contact us for more details.
If you have a son or daughter who is unhappy at school or struggling with the mainstream academic environment, then the SSC and this school may suit them better. The SSC allows for a broader range of learning styles, whilst losing nothing in rigour and the standard/quality of education.
The talk is expected to last for around an hour, with additional time for questions and answers. The talk will also include a short video of our oldest pupils being assessed as part of their Level 1 course last academic year.
Admission is free, but space may be limited, so we ask that anyone intending to come contacts the school on 01603 611175 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
