Regulating all online education providers

It is difficult to know who to trust these days when it comes to educating your children. Are there regional differences in the quality of teaching/tutoring? Is the same amount of money being invested in each part of the country? Are teachers’/tutors’ claims to be qualified individuals, true? To what extent are teachers/tutors in tutoring companies being thoroughly security checked? What level of safeguarding training have they received? How much are certain tutoring companies benefitting from the tax payer’s money? These problems have been further exacerbated by the Government’s National Tutoring Programme.

[Newsletter] Spring at Sophia High School: Going Beyond the Curriculum

Dear Parents and Friends,
The ten weeks of the Easter term have flown by, as our school continues to grow.
Sophia High currently has very much of an international feel to it. We have now welcomed students from the UK, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Portugal. It is lovely to have these students join our British students, as we grow our global learning community; there is so much we can learn from each other’s cultures.
