Welcome to Imhoff Waldorf School

Imhoff Waldorf School was started in 1996 by a group of parents who believed in alternative education with roots in the conservation of the environment. Waldorf education was the nearest form of curriculum embracing these ideas. At first the school was housed at Imhoff Farm. The school is now situated on a stretch of land directly adjacent to Imhoff Farm, having moved across to new grounds which the school purchased in 2018. The land is unspoilt, resulting in a natural feeling and appealing sense of freedom.

There are goats, alpacas, Nguni cows, tortoises and peacocks on the farm next door. We also see rabbits, porcupines, baboons, bird life, scorpions, insects and chameleons.

Today, both Imhoff Farm and Imhoff Waldorf School have managed to maintain the natural and rural feel. We hope in future developments that this natural spirit will be preserved, as it has become such an important part of Imhoff Waldorf School.

The philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the school’s unique grounds, the low pupil to teacher ratio and our committed sponsorship program ensure that the children grow up and learn in an environment of nature and diversity.

Children at the school are predominantly from Kommetjie, Scarborough, Noordhoek, Fish Hoek, Masiphumelele, Ocean View, Capri, Glencairn, Simonstown and Muizenberg.

Our school has a Parent & Child Circle, Playgroup, Kindergarten, and a Primary School from Class 1 to Class 7.

We are also please to announce that as of 2024 we have introduced our International Enrichment Programme which is a programme that allows for international students to experience Imhoff Waldorf School for a term or longer.
