The Maharishi Free School is an Academy situated in West Lancashire, north-west England in proximity to both Liverpool and Greater Manchester.

It is a wonderful place to be – a dynamic learning environment combined with a harmonious atmosphere where children aged from 4 – 16 receive the uniquely effective system of Consciousness-based Education. The School is built over two sites, Primary and Secondary each with a Deputy Head.

Creativity and intelligence are systematically developed with a few minutes of Transcendental Meditation (TM) at the beginning and end of the school day. Scientific research – based upon more than 200 studies – has shown that the experience of restful alertness during TM brings balance to the whole physiology, making learning both enjoyable and successful.
