UK Homeschooling methods

Hi everyone.

We are currently saving and planning for a circumnavigation of the globe in 2020 with our young daughter who will, by then, be around 7.

The plan is to live aboard the boat for several years as we travel around the world, homeschooling my daughter on the boat.

I hear a lot from US folks about the Calvert method of homeschooling but does anyone know of anything similar for the UK, or any good methods of homeschooling linked to the UK curriculum?

Thanks in advance!

Bec

Re: UK Homeschooling methods

IIRC from chatting with a British couple - it varies with each home council re what the formal requirements are. Like in the US, it varies with state and jurisdiction. If you talk to your local school council now - you get a sense of what's available and required, and if the home council requirements are not realistic, you have time to establish elsewhere.

There are a lot of Home Schooling Curriculum resources on line if you type this in your search..
I would also suggest you contact Cambridge University as they set curriculums for many schools and colleges world wide.. they may be able to supply a program.
My education in Pakistan was set by them and it was a very broad and comprehensive education.. not the UK's modern joke education that seems to discard actual education for politically advantageous end of term results.. to the detriment of the kids intellects.

Re: UK Homeschooling methods

We are planning to do exactly the same, well, maybe as far as Australia, leaving in 2020. We have twins who will be aged 7 also and Mum is a primary teacher in the UK. We are thinking that by the age of 11, they will need to be in mainstream secondary education somewhere, though not necessarily in the UK, by which time they may be needing more contact with their peers. Nice to know we are not alone and wish you all the best on your forthcoming adventures.
