We have lots of lovely Easter inspired goodies in stock at the Shop, including some fair trade/vegan Easter eggs. The Shop is open every morning 8.30-9.30 and this Friday 8.30-10 and 12-1. Please come and support us - we are tucked away behind the far Car Park. It is also possible now to pay by card and cash, grab a hot drink in the Community Space and use the loo facilities if needed.. We welcome new and old customers!
A little bit of history… the Shop was launched by parent volunteers in 2005 as a way to support the curriculum and community with Steiner inspired and ethical products. Over the years it has been a fantastic fundraiser; all profits going directly to the school.
There have been many locations for the Shop; an amazing team of parents fundraised 4 years ago for the current Shop and Community Space cabins. Recently re-opening after being closed for nearly 2 years, we have new arrivals of Weleda skincare, nutritious snacks and greetings cards. We also sell wooden toys, candles, books, Waldorf stationery, art pastels, paints and brushes, wool felt, wool and silk base layers, locally made hand crafted gifts, pre-loved items and more!
If you have quality pre-loved Waldorf inspired items to donate, we are very interested!
We are seeking new volunteers:
To open the Shop for an hour each week. Working in the Shop is a great place to volunteer - opportunities to meet new people in a wonderful environment surrounded by lovely products, knowing you are directly supporting the School’s funds, your Children’s education and Community. What’s not to like?
If anyone can assist with repairs and maintenance, we would love to hear from you.
Watch out for a discount Spring sale coming soon…

The Community Space next to the Shop is open to the community using it for free during school hours- providing a cosy environment to relax and and have a warm drink. It can also be hired out for very reasonable rates if you want to run a workshop, give a talk etc. This also requires people to look after the space and support with managing bookings is needed; please consider volunteering if you can to assist.
