Missed our Open Days at UKVS?

Our Open Days took place on the 4th July and 1st Aug 2022. This was an opportunity to find out more about UK Virtual School, learn about how we work, what our values are, and what makes us unique. Parents met our Founder, Syd and learnt about her educational philosophy and her vision for UK Virtual School. There was an opportunity to also meet our students and parents who shared their initial experience at UKVS and how they transitioned to online learning.

Syd also shared some plans for September for those who were looking to join. 

Don’t worry if you missed out. Both our open days lasted nearly 2 hours! Our video editing team has been busy creating small mangeable videos for you to watch in your own time!
