Key take aways

Up until starting grammar school, Syd loved learning, but grammar school was more about learning to pass exams, than creative learning. This is why UKVS embraces a joy of learning.
As kids become older, they become less curious when in the traditional schooling system. This is why one of UKVS's core values is Curiosity. For more on our core values, make sure you listen to episode 3 when it's available.
Syd found the competitive nature of grammar school unhelpful. This is why UKVS has mixed age classes.  When the kids are a different age and have a different starting point, rather than being in competition with one another, they naturally collaborate.
