July 18, 2022

UK Virtual School isn’t just any online school – We dare to be different! We offer a flexible online British Education adapted for the modern world, catering for Year 1 to iGCSEs for Home Educating families, Expats, and World Schoolers.

Season 2, Episode 2 - The Globe Trotting Teacher: From the Welsh Valley to the Jungle!

During this episode, you'll meet Jemma, who's an English teacher at UKVS.  She LOVES being part of the team because it gives her the ability to travel the world.  During her chat with Syd, you'll hear one story about a snake in a playground that you'll never forget!

As well as giving Jemma the ability to travel, she's a big convert to online schooling for these reasons:

➡ Students are more focused, as there aren't any classroom distractions

➡ At UKVS, teachers are subject specialists, even for primary age students

➡ The students and their families have time flexibility
