Headteacher’s Welcome

Hello, welcome to the Homeschool Website.  Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our services.  

Homeschool is an initiative designed to combat underachievement at school. Unlike traditional mainstream schools we have smaller class sizes and a curriculum that reflects the working life after school.  You could say we have a truly child centered focus.

As a Headteacher I have an active, in-depth experience of educating children and young people having worked first-hand as a Teacher in primary schools, secondary schools and colleges across the country.  

Earlier on in my career I also qualified in a number of corporate sectors and have had the opportunity to travel.  I did my degree in Business Administration and later a PGCE in Education.  I have worked for over 10 years as an examiner marking and assessing exam papers.  I therefore have a broad understanding of the workforce, a rich life experience and consequently see how Homeschool can improve the way education is delivered and achieve results.

We aim to prepare our children to be hard working, enterprising and valuable social members of society.  We not only educate them academically, but also to see the importance of living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  

We teach them Christian values, train them to care for themselves as well as others and encourage them to have fun.  

Though we are a Christian school we do not discriminate against anyone and accept children of all faiths and backgrounds.  Our curriculum incorporates all of these values and more.  

We also take a high duty of care and comply with all governmental guidance in respect of safeguarding children.

For further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

With God’s Blessings,

Head Teacher
