Norwich Steiner School Graduates
In July 2017 our first cohort of 12 pupils graduated from the school age 18/19. These pupils comprised a group of boys and girls, some of who have been with the school since kindergarten, others more recently, including one who joined the class (known as Elder class) as little as one year ago.
Nine achieved the Level 3 Steiner School Certificate* (with 78% being awarded ‘highly commended’ or above); two gained a Level 2 certificate, and one student chose not to study towards the qualification, but instead worked to develop a portfolio of practical work.
Where do our pupils go when they leave school?
University: Five pupils applied for places on University courses. All of them received multiple offers, including offers from universities which form part of the prestigious Russell Group. Three of the five have started their courses: Maths with computer science, Computer Graphics and Photography; the other two pupils, have deferred entry for their degree courses in Music and Music/Art until September 2018, in order to allow them time to travel and gain work experience.
College: Five pupils are continuing their education in Colleges. One is doing a foundation course in mechanical engineering, three in drama/theatre studies and a fifth is doing teacher training.
Taking time out to consider next steps: Two of our pupils are completely undecided at this stage; both are taking a year out to travel, gain employment experience and consider their options from a wide range of possibilities open to them with their skills, interests and Qualifications.

Maths and computer science: York, Lincoln, University of East Anglia, Loughborough
