“The results also revealed some good news for Gove’s flagship free schools programme, with an unorthodox free school in west Lancashire achieving some outstanding GCSE results.
The Maharishi Free School near Skelmersdale was fifth among non-selective state schools with 61% of its pupils gaining A* or A grades in art and design.
Its curriculum includes three periods of meditation each day for pupils, which headteacher Derek Cassells said was part of the reason for the school’s excellent results in art.”
And for those of you who speak French this is a nice review of our Maharishi School in England (and another special school on a boat).
