As an independent school perhaps the biggest challenge we face is funding - as we are curriculum-free, we have no financial support from the state.
Any donation, no matter what the amount, ensures democratic education remains an option to students throughout West Cork and beyond!
It feels good to help an organisation close to your heart. Charitable giving carries on your values, reflecting your passions and priorities with your support. There are many ways you can support West Cork Sudbury School and our community projects.
