There’s no need to worry about stressful exams or stifling school rules. This “hipster” school in Britain might be every child’s dream! And what’s more, there are only classes three days a week.
The Green House Education Project is located at South Stoke, Bath, Somerset. Instead of listening to boring lecture day to day, students in this school spend more time outdoors. It is tagged as hipster because of its free-spirited disposition.
Founders of the school describe it as a “learning community.” The classes are from Monday to Wednesday. There are no traditional subjects, instead, the kids spend most of their time on outdoor adventures.
They climb trees…
Go on adventures…
… and more free play!
The school’s approach breaks the traditional school system.
It encourages discovery and learning through direct experience and play.
They want the students to know the importance of discovering ideas by themselves.
Simply put, the school aims to help students become “become adaptable, creative thinkers with a strong sense of identity and self-confidence.”
Cindy Adams, one of the school’s qualified teachers, explained Metro the school’s focus of collaborative learning.
“There is a saying “it takes a village to raise a child” and that is what we are trying to encourage. We are a real community, the children, parents and mentors, we are all one big family.”
“Children learn so much through play and interaction with each other, we want them to discover the best of themselves.”
There are no desks, instead they sit around in blankets during discussions or presentations.
She added that traditional schools put too much pressure to children:
“There is something wrong when research shows young children are suffering high levels of anxiety. In our schools, we do yoga, meditation and mindfulness and we encourage free play. We want our children to be happy – you can’t learn if you are anxious.”
The students are divided into two age groups: the Wolf Cubs, aged 5-7; and the Wolf Pack, aged 7-14. Termly fees cost £1,250.
