The Genius Tree

The Genius Tree is growing into a small community of New Paradigm thinkers who believe in natural immunity and a better world for all.

We are here to support young people identify and nurture their talents.

“Thank you for today! My daughter came back elated, full of stories… She can’t wait for the next session.”

Michael Meade quote about Genius

“After so many years of conflict with the school system, I’m so happy to see the children love learning again and to have found you to help them on their journey. I knew intuitively you were the right person to work with them and immediately fell in love with the genius tree project. Thank you for all you have done so far.”

We create an atmosphere of exploration and experimentation. Students are sheltered from external pressures so that their natural inclinations can sprout forth and take root under the protective branches of the Genius Tree.

LOCKDOWN RESILIENT LEARNING

We provide services to key workers and other special cases so that a consistency of care is provided to families regardless of restrictions.

The work we do is of a sensitive nature and we like to keep things personal so we always prefer to work face-to-face.

To find out whether we can help your family contact Ian on 07476 179330 to find out more. We’ll make an appointment to come and meet with you.

GREAT VALUE

We tend to be popular with self-employed families who can receive large discounts on our activities due to the tax-free childcare scheme.

Example: A £50 day can cost parents as little as £10.

BETTER THAN SCHOOL

The Genius Tree provides an outstanding alternative to conventional education, both private and public. Only a handful of schools in the UK are actually dedicated to self-directed learning.

In our Genius! magazine we lay out a powerful case against the out-of-date educational practices in schools so we’re not going to labour the point here. We provide the inspiration and the support for young people to develop their capacities in order to thrive in this rapidly changing environment.

NOT ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL

The Genius Tree provides an alternative to mainstream education for those families who are wishing to breakaway from conformist attitudes and cultural trends to re-establish a grounded approach to youth development.

It can be a struggle to provide a rounded upbringing which can prepare young people for modern life and an uncertain future. What is for certain is that we can only experience the best that life can afford us when we connect fully to the latent genius waiting to be awakened.

NOT FOR MUGGLES

By placing ourselves firmly in the context of a Hero’s Journey, as postulated by Joseph Campbell, every living moment becomes an opportunity to pursue our never-ending quest for self-improvement and adventure. This creates an environment in which we can assess our behaviour and decide whether or not our actions are taking us towards meaningful goals.

Moving away from the paradigm where students are coerced to practise ‘real-life’ before they’re allowed to do anything ‘for real’, the Genius Tree provides an encouraging environment where young people can play for long enough to find, identify and nurture their inner calling so that their gifts can be brought fully into this world.

WORKING HOURS

The Genius Tree has been launched, currently operating three days per week: Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Brighton (ages 3-7) and Fridays in Ringmer (8-15). As demand increases, more capacity will be added.

In the coming months, we also intend to offer additional services:

Tutor Groups
Family Events
Lectures
Music Sessions for under 7’s
Daily Online Assembly

Contact Ian on 07476 179330 if you’d like to find out more.

If you want to find out if we’re truly aligned in terms of our educational philosophy, please take a little more time to explore our inspiration section and the Genius! magazine.

The Genius Tree is where heroes grow.
