The Small School is a coeducational independent school for children ages 11-16, located in Hartland, Devon, England.


Satish Kumar, who also founded Resurgence magazine, lived in a rural village and did not want to send his 10-year-old son to the nearest secondary school either in Bude or Bideford. The Small School is known for its pupils growing, cooking, and serving their own lunches. Unlike other state schools, The Small School was founded in September 1982, and has a choice of afternoon options including: photography, yoga, pottery, woodwork. The Small School began with 8 children and has grown to as many as 35 (it has an organised capacity for 40 children), although the school currently only has 20 students enrolled.
