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.

Site Announcement for our Second Campus

On behalf of the Rudolf Steiner Education Group Brisbane, I am delighted to announce that we have found and secured a wonderful site to commence operations of the Brisbane Steiner School. The site is located at 583 Coronation Drive in Toowong. It is a lovely character building that was once the old Toowong Municipal Library. The site is within walking distance of the river, the ferry, the train station, Toowong Village and various sports and park facilities. The site has lovely trees and greenspace that will be converted into playgrounds for the children. The building is big enough to house a Prep- Class 3 campus and the hunt will continue for another site nearby to allow continued growth of the school.

It is our intention to commence operations mid 2017 with the opening date to be determined by the approval date of our application for accreditation with the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board. The school will commence offering a Prep and a Class 1 in 2017; a Prep, 1 & 2 in 2018 and a Prep 1, 2 & 3 in 2019. Once a larger site is secured within the vicinity, we will roll out another class per year until the full range of Primary Classes is reached. Upon relocation of the Primary Campus the Coronation Drive site will be reconfigured into a Steiner Early Years Centre. If you have not yet confirmed your pre-enrolment please do so as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Pre-enrolment places have been filling steadily and we envisage an escalated interest now that a site has been secured. Regular updates will be provided until the school opens and we will be hosting an open day early in 2017. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to welcoming your family to the Brisbane Steiner School community in the new year.
Warm regards
