Some Words from Our Founder

“I’m really excited about UK Virtual School, what it represents and what it stands for. I’ve worked with Home Ed families for over a decade and I know there was always a need for something different to traditional schooling, a framework that allows students to learn and grow without the focus on marks and grading.

For those of you who have followed my journey over the years, you will know I am a big advocate of growth mindset. This is embedded in the core of UKVS. We are still early on in our journey – as we phase in more of our unique ideas, we are very open to input from both parents and children.

UK Virtual School is revolutionary in many ways and we hope to see you become part of our family to see your children transform and grow a passion for learning.”
