Principles & Practices of The School

Why We're Here

The hope and intent of the School is that students will:

  • Gain inspiration and guidance to help bring them to a fuller, richer and more productive life
  • To evolve the spiritual aspect of their being
  • To serve society to the best of their ability.

These are the principles that we adhere to:

  • All tutors are also students of philosophy in the School.
  • Tutors give their time freely and receive no pay for their services. Two office staff are part-time employees and are paid.
  • Course fees are used for necessary expenditure such as the purchase of furniture and equipment, maintenance of premises, administration, advertising etc.
  • Fees are kept to a practical minimum - they do not cover capital expenditure, which is made possible by donations, loans and legacies from students with the means to contribute in this way.
  • No one may receive financial advantage from attendance at the School.
  • Neither attendance at the School nor position in it is for obtaining personal advantage.
  • In order to protect student relationships, students are asked not to enter into financial or business arrangements between themselves without appropriate prior consultation.
  • Students are asked not to indulge in criticism of others, but practise tolerance and respect and raise issues or concerns in a reasonable way.
  • All are welcome to sample what the School has to offer through the introductory courses, and to continue further with the study and practice if they wish to do so.
