The Steiner School Certificate
The SSC is a world-leading approach to secondary education, created in New Zealand. Our Upper School Waldorf curriculum at South Devon Steiner School allows students to explore subjects independently, and in-depth, with increasing specialisation and extension into preferred subjects year upon year, culminating in a recognised qualification.
Currently students in class 9 and 10 study the SSC to Level 1. We are delighted to be opening our doors for the first time in September 2017, to students wishing to complete classes 11 and 12, extending our SSC programme to Levels 2 and 3.
Our class 12 students, achieving SSC Level 3 endorsed with university entrance courses, will be able to apply to universities through the UCAS process.
The SSC is similar to the International Baccalaureat (IB) in that students continue to develop their knowledge across a wider range of subjects than the traditional approach of A Levels.
Our Upper School programme delivers a full Waldorf curriculum to 18 years including Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Music, Geography, History, Farming, History of Art, Biology, French, German, Outdoor Curriculum, Drama, Literature, Eurythmy, Architecture, Philosophy, Social Studies and Arts & Crafts.
