The School has adopted various working principles with the aim of protecting the welfare of its students and the integrity of its work. These include the following:
- All are welcome to sample what the School has to offer through the introductory courses, and to continue further with their studies if so inclined.
- The intent of the School is that everyone attending, however long or short their stay, will find something of value.
- The School not only seeks to deepen the understanding of its students but also encourages them to put what they have learned into practice. The aim is to lead a balanced life and to serve society to the best of one’s ability.
- Students are asked not to indulge in criticism of others, but to practise tolerance and respect towards fellow students.
- All tutors are also students of philosophy in the School.
- Tutors receive no remuneration for their services.
- The fact that someone is attending courses in the School, or has a position of trust within it, should never be used for the purpose of securing financial gain.
- Course fees are kept to a practical minimum and are used to pay for the hire of the building, to advertise the introductory course and to make a financial contribution towards the central administrative costs of our parent charity.
