Statement of Closure of the Upper School

It is with a heavy heart that we must share with you the sad news that the upper classe of Calder Valley Steiner School will be closing their doors after 10 years of providing education in the Calder Valley. On July 19th 2019 all of the School’s activities at Cragg Vale will cease, including the plans for the Hubs, and will not be reopening in September 2019.

We had hoped that with a significant financial investment and renewed community energy we could start a new, sustainable model of education in September 2019. However, this has not proved possible.

The charity CVSE will continue to exist and endeavour to fulfil its charitable aims of providing Steiner Waldorf Education in the Calder Valley in the future, including the Parent and Child work based at Machpelah in Hebden Bridge, and the Kindergarten class in Cragg Vale.

We thank you all for your kindness, commitment and support over the past years.


Yours Sincerely,

The Calder Valley Steiner School Board of Trustees
