Summerhill may not be a Sudbury School but they think highly of SVS and
its "many followers". There website directs visitors to SVS. When I was
re-educating myself to free schools I call Summerhill and talked to a
couple of their staff about the Summerhill and they pointed me back to
the Sudbury model and Danny. Sometime soon I would like to be a "fly on
the wall" at Summerhill.

I did not say, nor intend to imply, that Summerhill is a Sudbury school.
There are similarities and it is the democratic model founded in
England, where the original poster is located, so I thought it might be
of interest to her. If one is to start a democratic school, it just
makes sense to find out about the local democratic model that already
exists. IMHO

Hi Jennifer,
I would not say that Summerhill is a Sudbury School! Maybe they were the
first but they are not the same in my opinion.

Hi Corrina,
You should check out Summerhill, I believe the school is in Leiston in
Soffolk. The school that really started it all. if there was an earlier
school, I would love to hear about it.
Take care,

Hi to all

Are any of you based in England and/or wanting to set up a Sudbury-based

model here?

I'm teaching in the English state system now and my heart is in the
model. I'm interested in either setting up a one-off school or just
the whole hog and Sudburyifying the English system. Where are all you
English people who have this same yearning and the energy to start
some ass!?? Surely better late than never.... ;0)

Love to all,

Hey Corrina,
I am not really an 'English person', but based in the UK for the moment
anyway (Scotland, that is). I've spent a year at the Australian Sudbury!
School, but am originally from Germany. At the moment I am studying
conservation biology at the university of Aberdeen. I just wanted you to
have my email adress in case you do get some people to meet sometime and
want to invite me along ;-) No seriously, it might be interesting for
any of us and I just love getting in touch with other Sudbury people!
Good luck to you,
Regina =)
