World schooling
More families than ever are taking ‘edventures’ – long-term trips where children learn on the road. 
Driven by a desire to spend a greater amount of time as a family, escape the pressures of work and discover new cultures and lifestyles, a growing number of parents are taking their children out of school and setting off on an adventure.
Advantages
  • Children spend more time outdoors and learning through play
  • Children are immersed in other cultures and have life-changing experiences
  • Families spend more quality time together
  • Students learn about other places, societies and values outside of formal lessons
  • Students are not repeatedly tested and progress can be measured by more than academic standards alone
Considerations
  • Travelling for long periods with the family can be expensive. Home swaps can help to reduce costs
  • Children can fall behind their peers in academic subjects. This can make it difficult to re-enter mainstream school or take public exams such  as GCSE or A levels
  • Learning in a structured way requires careful planning. World schooling families may use online professional home schooling to overcome this
  • Families spend significant periods of time together. Meeting other world schooling families can help your children to make new friends and share the world schooling experience together
