This 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 read of Fiona’s comprehensive Ed Yourself website is highly recommended. The website of the Alternative Education support group, Education Otherwise, is also useful.

My boys and I are based in Royal Albert Dock, an area in the fast-growing London Docklands. We love travelling so it’s great to be minutes away from the London City Airport and the Eurostar stop in Stratford.

We are also very fortunate to be very close to the fabulous Museum of London Docklands; Wakeup Docklands – the watersports centre; The Crystal with its superb interactive exhibitions; the Excel Centre with its numerous events; the O2 with its concerts and eateries;  the Thames Barrier Information Centre; those cute cable cars; the gorgeous Olympic Park and all its facilities; and the kids’ favourite, the Lee Valley VeloPark.


For regular outings in London and beyond, we recommend Home Education: What’s on When/Where – Surrey and London. If the above link does not work, please copy/paste https://www.facebook.com/groups/HomeEdWhatsOn/?ref=ts&fref=ts into your browser. There are, of course, numerous other equally amazing events-organising home education groups on Facebook.

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