Waterperry House

After completing a few terms of studying philosophy, students are invited to spend a weekend at one of the School's country study residencies of Waterperry House, which is located to the east of Oxford. Study weekends are an opportunity to meet, study and work with students from other UK Branch Schools and students from the head School in London. (Due to current Covid restrictions, the House is not currently available for residential meetings.)

The house is set in spacious grounds that comprise beautiful gardens, a garden centre, a teashop, a farm shop, a church and several cottages. Click here to go to the Waterperry Gardens website.

Inside the house are numerous works of art, all produced by artists and sculptors who are, or have been, students in the School. The 'Artists' Hall' is richly decorated with marvellous frescoes in which each one depicts a meaningful philosophical story.

You can see the frescoes and more information about Waterperry House and the School from a YouTube video by clicking here.

As students progress through the School, longer study periods of up to a week are available at both Waterperry House and Nanpantan Hall in Leicestershire. (See also the Nanpantan Hall page.)
