Educating your child in the UK is compulsory, however attending school is not – and deciding whether or not to home school your child is never an easy decision. There are a variety of reasons you might decide to home school their child, whether due to a lack of places at your preferred school, social or cultural differences, or even the need for an extension of parenting styles such as a helicopter or authoritative. Whatever the reason, you’re not alone. Research shows the number of children being home schooled continues to increase year on year – with a 40% increase in home schooled children in the last 3 years alone. We understand how important a decision this is and that’s Liberty Tuition are here to guide and support you at every step of the way. Through our bespoke services, we make sure to provide expert knowledge and resources to ensure your child’s needs are met and excels throughout the course.

Arrange Tuition

Liberty Tuition provides flexible, bespoke home-schooling programmes tailored towards the individual circumstances and educational goals of each student. Whether it’s to provide long term educational support and accessibility with your child’s medical needs at the centre, or to provide your child with an alternative provision while you look for schools, we are able to provide a programme of study with durations as short as a month, to and entire academic year


Already, we’ve seen the impact our work in schools and local communities has had on children and young people throughout London – maximizing their potential and shaping a brighter future through not only academic support but social and emotional growth through mentoring. Over the next 3 years, we intend for this impact to spread to other communities across England, ensuring we’re contributing to a world in which no child’s life chances are limited by their socio-economic background.

Advantages of Homeschooling

Home-schooling offers many advantages when compared to traditional mainstream school based learning, and the statistics surrounding the year on year increase in the amount of parents and carers choosing this form of education for their children strongly supports this. We’ve summarised some of the advantages below:

In schools, children are encouraged to study at a certain rate, often meaning they either fall behind their classmates and feel they are learning too slowly, or find their potential constrained, leading to boredom. Home schooling can eliminate these issues, given that a student’s progression is decided by themselves and their tutor.


With home schooling, a student can create and study a curriculum they want to learn, giving rise to increase engagement and motivation.


Parents can ensure their children are taught in line with educational philosophies that are well-suited to their child’s learning style.


It isn’t uncommon for parents and carers to feel as if they don’t get enough time in the day to spend with their children, and this can lead to parents and children alike feeling somewhat distant. Home schooling can strengthen the bond between parent and child, given the amount of time spent together, allowing families to reconnect and learn about each other on a whole new level.


Home schooling can be a sociable experience, despite the apparent lack of contact between a child and their peers. Complete flexibility in the hours of teaching means that home schooled children can pursue hobbies, contribute to their communities and meet people they would otherwise not have interacted with if they were educated in a school – people of all ages. Arguably, this is more beneficial than primarily spending time with people their own age in school.
