Perceval School was founded in 1957, and has about 400 pupils from pre-school to upper school, with education founded in the Steiner–Waldorf educational system.
Upper school pupils at Perceval School work towards the French baccalaureat L, S and ES. The school is partially financed by the state and the local council (Mairie). The school follows the Steiner-Waldorf educational system and is part of the Fédération des Ecoles Steiner en France. The Steiner-Waldorf School Movement unites about 2,300 pupils in 21 schools and jardins d’enfants in France.
Steiner-Waldorf education recognises the whole child, the intellect, the emotions and the physical, which is sometimes expressed as head, heart and hands. Steiner–Waldorf education has 5 main objectives:
– Awaken and develop the creative abilities of each child.
– Encourage children to be independent at each stage of their development.
– Encourage children to develop as full members of society, confident and happy in their surroundings.
– Stimulate in pupils a desire to learn, based on lively teaching and artistic presentation of material.
– Offer pupils a wide range of activities, allowing children to develop their own talents, according to the individual nature of each child.
Tuition fees are 4,850 euros annually across all school years. An overview of lunch costs and school fees for the 2021-22 academic year can be viewed here.
