Mature Students are young adults who come to Brockwood out of their own interest in order to study Krishnamurti's teachings within the context of the School. Their contribution is to participate with staff and students in the life of the School and to contribute to the atmosphere of Brockwood with their own serious inquiry. They are junior colleagues of the staff and work 20 hours a week in return for free board and accommodation. Mature Students are generally between 21 and 30 years of age and have no dependents.
They may have specific duties with respect to the students, which might include academic tutoring, coaching in sports, etc. As with staff, mature students have a duty of care with respect to the students, who sometimes look to them for guidance and assistance. Mature students also have their own programme of dialogues and inquiry, based on Krishnamurti's teachings, and this is generally geared towards educational writings.
