Welcome to Samford Valley Steiner School

A living education for social renewal

Samford Valley Steiner School offers an inspiring and comprehensive education for children from Pre-Prep through to Year 12 in high school.
Our school is located on 20 acres of leafy, natural bushland, in the semi-rural Samford Valley. This picturesque destination is approximately 24km/35 minutes drive from Brisbane, in South East Queensland, Australia.

Shared by the fastest growing independent school movement in the world, our curriculum is based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. The education aims to give each new generation an education entirely free from partisan political, economic, sectarian or racial influences. From the earliest years, throughout the child’s education right up to high school graduation, our curriculum is integrated to fully prepare each child for adulthood. We recognise that each child is unique and through focusing on enhancing each individual child’s attributes and sensitively addressing their challenges we strive to develop unprejudiced, well-informed, confident and creative young people who are valuable and practical contributors to society.

We welcome the involvement of parents in our school community. Click here to find how you can join in. Download more information by clicking on the button on the right, or call the school on 07 3430 9600 if there is information you have not found on our site.

Update on search for our Second Campus
We are very aware that many of you are waiting eagerly for news regarding progress towards establishing the Brisbane Steiner School; SVSS 2nd campus.  We are actively following up all leads and possibilities and have several promising sites that we are working to progress.  It is still our hope to be able to identify a site and obtain all the necessary approvals for an opening date sometime in 2017.  For this to be possible we need to have a definite location secured prior to the end of 2016.  We are making a committed attempt to achieve this.  We will provide a further update early in December or prior if we secure a site in the interim.  Thank you for your ongoing support and patience.
