In the UK, plans are underway to open a Free School in Richmond, a borough of London, for September 2013 which aims to deliver not only outstanding academic results, but also the full development of pupils' creativity, intelligence and self-confidence. The Richmond school will use Consciousness-based Education, which incorporates a few minutes practise each day of the Transcendental Meditation technique for pupils and staff.

Consciousness-based Education has been pioneered by the Maharishi Free School in Lancashire, which will supervise the Richmond school. Ofsted (the UK's Office for Standards in Education) has rated Maharishi Free School ''outstanding'' in 11 areas and ''outstanding'' overall.

An announcement of the planned opening explains that Maharishi Schools:
∙ Systematically nurture the happiness of the pupils.
∙ Eliminate bullying.
∙ Have a proven reputation for outstanding academic results.
∙ Primary and Secondary places available.

The announcement invites parents who might like to enrol their children to register their interest on the school's website and come to introductory Open Day events in the area in early December.

''I have had the pleasure of meeting many students who are practising Transcendental Meditation and experiencing Consciousness-based Education. They are amazing: self-sufficient, energetic, blissful, creative, powerfully intelligent and peaceful human beings. Meeting these students, for me, was the proof that Consciousness-based Education is a profoundly good thing for our schools and for our world.'' — David Lynch, Film Director
