The Cambridge Steiner School is an independent school in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England, and is part of the worldwide network of Steiner Waldorf schools. The school offers Waldorf Steiner education and serves about 100 children, with three Kindergartens (ages 3–6) and Classes 1 to 5 (ages 6–11).[1]

In January 2008, the school moved into new quarters in the previous Windmill School in Fulbourn.[2] In November 2007, the school began a process with the Cambridgeshire County Council to seek state funding.[3] In 2011 it submitted an application to become a Free School, which was unsuccessful.

The school has an international feel, reflecting the wider Cambridge community, and in January 2010 has teachers from around the world (Cuba, the Netherlands, Norway) and a vibrant parent community. The academic year 2009/2010 saw the opening of a new "Little Kindergarten" for the youngest children, and a new woodland initiative, which sees children aged 3 to 6 spend much of their time outdoors in Fulbourn Nature Reserve.
