Who We Are


The Freies Aktives Lernen Syke is a registered society which was set up by a group of parents, some with young and some with older children, who are interested in new ways of schooling.


Some of us have practical experience of independent schools or playschools, others are looking for alternative ways of schooling, and one family has actually been involved in setting up an independent school in the past.


We believe that independent education helps create a diverse educational landscape, offering parents choices which enable them to get involved and to have a say in how and what their children learn.
