Julian Esposito (Headteacher)
For many years I worked in the secondary state system. It is my aim and wish to create an environment where children can flourish and be enabled to function to full capacity in our society. With this in mind, myself and a large group of committed teachers have initiated a start to an Epicquest.
We use the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner, the Dalai Lama and Jakow Trachtenberg. Children have the capacity to form their own system of understanding in all subjects. What is required is smaller classes, longer periods of learning a single subject and repetition.
I have always admired the discipline instilled by example, rather than through authoritarian power structures. I would like to continue this form of leadership. I encourage meditation, questioning and hard work so that the children are able to fulfil their potential.
