“The impact of the small class sizes is such that each pupil benefits from the individual attention that is provided; pupils themselves value this and report that it helps them to make very good progress…”
- Ofsted report on Maharishi School Lancashire, 4th March 2009 (prior to the school being awarded Free School status) more »
Classes at Maharishi Free School are kept small to enable our teachers to know their pupils very well and for individual classes to form strong, supportive relationships.
This supportive relationship between teacher and student cultures receptivity to learning in students of every age because it is only on the ground of the pupils’ receptivity to learning that education can actually take place.
This policy means that pupils in the primary school (Reception to Year 6) will be in a class of 20 pupils or less, while pupils in the secondary school are in classes of 14 or less.
