Founded by J. Krishnamurti

The Intentions

The intentions of Brockwood Park School, stated in Krishnamurti's many public talks and books, can be summarised as follows:

  • To educate the whole human being;
  • To explore what freedom and responsibility are in relationship with others and in modern society;
  • To see the possibility of being free from self-centered action and inner conflict;
  • To discover one's own talent and what right livelihood means;
  • To awaken a sense of excellence in academic studies and everyday conduct;
  • To learn the proper care, use and exercise of the body;
  • To appreciate the natural world, seeing our place in it and responsibility for it; and
  • To find the clarity that may come from having a sense of order and valuing silence.

Surely a school is a place where one learns about the totality, the wholeness of life. Academic excellence is absolutely necessary, but a school includes much more than that. It is a place where both the teacher and the taught explore not only the outer world, the world of knowledge, but also their own thinking, their own behavior.
