What is The Academy?

The Virtual Academy is an online school for Years 9 - 13. We're enrolling now for an immediate start for Years 9 & 10. 

Pupils study the British Curriculum from the comfort and safety of their home, learn through a mixture of live group lessons and online self-taught modules, take exams, make life-long friends, get great results - and do this all online.

Our goal has been to take our 1-2-1 homeschooling expertise and apply it to a virtual setting, whilst also providing a solution to one of the key concerns about homeschooling - what do we do about the social side of home education?

The result has been to take the whole school experience - from lessons, to extracurricular clubs, and even weekly assemblies - and put it online.

With 7 years of exceptional experience in private tutoring and homeschooling, we're now able to make a big difference to families for whom traditional school is not an option, or for whom traditional homeschooling is too expensive.

Virtual learning, made good...

Our world-class online learning platform allows students to work at their own pace, on their own schedule, encouraging them to develop self-study skills, self-sufficiency, and accountability.

Pupils will learn the GCSE syllabus through a mixture of video, audio and texts. They will be regularly quizzed and challenged to learn, reflect, revise, test; then master and move on to the next topic.

These lessons will reinforce their learning in a highly engaging and interactive group environment, and ensure that nobody gets left behind.
