Description

In 1915 a new school opened in Letchworth. Based upon Theosophic values, it offered a very progressive form of education, with children encouraged to develop their own personal interests, and emphasis placed on tolerance towards all races and religions, and physical health and well-being. Discipline was largely self-imposed and students were able to influence the running of the school. The school's philosophy has enabled it to weather a century of change, including two world wars, economic depressions, and many shifts in national education policy. St Christopher School is now a unique and dynamic school where education continues to be based upon the concept of treating children as individuals. This book explores the school's history and philosophy, offering a concise but fascinating insight into the first hundred years of St Chris.show more
