August 1, 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 4 - A Day in the Life of a UKVS Student - Raif's Journey into Secondary School

During this episode, you'll meet Raif, who's a student at UK Virtual School. 

During this chat with Syd, you'll hear about his time in state schools and some of his issues with the traditional model of schooling.

Here are just some of the reasons Raif loves online schooling:

➡ UKVS really DOES listen to their students, whereas he felt largely ignored at his old traditional school

➡ UKVS has helped Raif to become more focused on his work, and comfortable enough to participate and ask some brilliant questions.

➡ The UKVS day is planned carefully - with breaks to keep the students learning effectively.
