At UK Virtual School, we have 4 core values; Growth Mindset, Innovation, Curiosity and Diversity and Inclusion. On this third episode of the show, you’ll hear about how important values are at UKVS. Syd will deep dive into our Core Values, which are central to how we function as a school, how we train our staff and what our expectations are of our students. Syd explains the importance of each value in turn why she’s so passionate about each and every one of them.

UK Virtual School isn’t just any online school – We dare to be different! We offer a flexible online British Education adapted for the modern world, catering for Year 1 to iGCSEs for Home Educating families, Expats, and World Schoolers.
