Thread: Hello from UK!

  1. #1

    Default Hello from UK!

    Hi I'm Helen and we have been home educating our daughter for 3 years. We pulled her out of school at the beginning of year three (grade 2) and have not looked back.

    We have recently looked into how things are organised in the US, with SAT's etc and think we will follow this route rather than the UK route of GCSE's and A Levels.


    Looking forward to making new friends etc

    Welcome! SATs are a long way in the future.

    Is it difficult to homeschool in the UK?

    Home Education in UK is relatively easy but not as well known as in the US (although it is growing in UK)
