We help start and advise Democratic Free Schools on the Summerhill model; we also help democratise alternative and mainstream schools and classrooms.


A Good Enough Reason

A good enough reason? If Summerhill matters, it is not because of what happens in one school in one hidden corner of England.  If it matters it is because it responds to our feeling that there is something wrong with the world.  It seems to offer a way out. Your definition of what is wrong…



“This is a much needed project. There is a wide gap between what people WANT our kind of schools to be and the reality. It is so important that people with on-the-ground experience keep the knowledge of real Summerhill ideals alive. Jason and Leonard have that experience.”

-Zoe Readhead,
Principal of Summerhill
