  • positive review  My daughter is in her 3rd week of lessons at UKVS, after we recently removed her from school. She's currently in Yr8, doing the Interactive Lessons. All the teachers are friendly, she's really enjoying the lessons, and always comes off smiling! I would recommend going with the Interactive Lessons for the interaction with the teacher, the work, and the rest of the class ☺️ Very happy with UKVS!

  • positive review  My girl Varnika is in year 5 and fortunately found UKVS for temporary home education. This has really helped me and I am so relieved that I chose UKVS. Initially started with weekly classes and then moved on to daily classes. Teachers and administrators are so friendly. My decision was very late for daily classes despite of that I got my refund for the weekly classes after a week of classes done. Varnika will be going to school from January, however I would still like to continue this classes going forward along with school(if it’s possible). Varnika says - Ashley, Kate and Sid were so enthusiastic, kind and supportive. I look forward for every class every day, I look forward to making new letters poems and stories. It is so fun way of learning English. Learnt a lot of new things in Maths.
