Head Teacher’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 Head Teacher 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 within 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 in order to achieve the best results.
We aim to prepare our children to be hardworking, enterprising and valuable social members of society. Not only do we educate each child academically, we also teach them to see the importance of living a healthy, happy and balanced lifestyle.
We teach children Christian values, train them to care for themselves as well as others and encourage them to have fun.
As 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,
