Home schooling can offer an exciting and very successful approach to your child's learning. It is estimated that over 50,000 children are home schooled in the UK and the figure is rising by 80% per year.
The thought of home schooling may at first seem daunting. But most parents' apprehension is due to the fact that so little is widely understood about how home schooling works and there are many assumptions and misconceptions surrounding it.
As generations of home schooled children grow up, some never having been to school, and move forward into further education, universities and employment, they are living proof of how successful it is; a life saver for some whose destiny in school may have been prolonged suffering at the hands of bullies, or academic failure as their learning needs were not individually catered for.
This is the greatest advantage of home schooling; it gives parents the opportunity to create a ‘tailor-made' education - one that suits the learning needs of their child. Because of its flexibility parents who home school have a choice about what, when, where and how their children learn.
We currently support a number of families who have chosen home schooling. Some of our families are dissatisfied by their local schools, others are seeking extra academic challenge for very academically gifted children; others have children with learning needs that a busy teacher cannot cater for and others have children who find the school environment too stressful for them to learn well and reach their potential.
We have considerable experience and success in providing home schooling for children of all ages, abilities and needs. Our teachers will support families by scheduling a complete programme of learning, teaching regular one-to-one lessons each week, monitoring progress, organising public examinations and supporting and advising parents.
Tuition fees to support home schooling range from £100 to £500 per week, dependent upon the shape of the week and the level of teaching input required.
|Home Schooling: Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2; typically 8 to 16 hours each week, from £38 per hour|
|Home Schooling: Key Stage 3, GCSE, IGCSE and A level; typically 2 hours per academic subject each week, from £40 per hour|
