Alder Bridge School was established in 1987 by a pioneering group of parents and has been running an Early Years, Kindergarten and Lower School provision to a minimum of class 5/6 ever since. We are a co-educational, fully comprehensive independent Steiner Waldorf school.
The school is situated in beautiful semi-rural surroundings and we are privileged to have our own woodland for the children to explore as well as a woodland classroom. Our grounds provide lots of play and learning opportunities, with vegetable plots, willow structures and simply space to run.
