This is is a personal site that has, over time, evolved into a resource and broadcast tool for an increasing number of families choosing to educate their children at home. For those new to home education, a good reference guide is Fiona’s Ed Yourself website. The website of the Alternative Education support group, Education Otherwise, is also useful.

My boys and I are based in Royal Docks, a fast-growing area within London Docklands. We are very fortunate to be near the fabulous Museum of London Docklands, for history; Wakeup Docklands, for water sports; SportsDock for physical education, gym, racquet sports, etc; Siemens Crystal, for STEM subjects; Excel Centre, for eateries and exhibitions;  Thames Barrier Information Centre; Olympic Park and all its facilities; Lee Valley VeloPark; The O2 for concerts and exhibitions; Leisure centres, for all other sports; and the cable cars. It also helps that the train station for our frequent trips into London is only a few minutes’ walk away.


For regular outings in London and beyond, get in touch for recommendations.

Donations towards the upkeep of this site is gratefully received. Thank you, Phoenix.
