Hi - I'm Rosalyn Spencer

In my first book 'Why I Started a Small School' I share my vision with the reader, and tell the true story of how I made some dreams come true. 

'Everybody has intelligence ...

It's just a matter of finding the right door ...

and then finding the right key to unlock it!' 

Professor Tim Brickhouse

'The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are seedlings of realities.'
        James Allen

“A powerful story of transformation in education. I recommend this book to all educators wholeheartedly.“

Satish Kumar: Editor-in-Chief of Resurgence & Ecologist; Founder of The Small School, Hartland

Book Reviews

“Rosalyn Spencer’s personal and compelling narrative about her battle to establish a new type of school two decades ago marks her out as an innovator ahead of her time.“

Tony Breslin, Chair, Human Scale Education

“Rosalyn’s courageous establishment was a much-needed exemplar of change in education-provision, in what is now, a socio-ecologically fragmenting Britain.”

Stuart McBurney, Author, Ecology into Economics Won’t Go
