Founded in 2020 by Minerva Tutors, one of the UK’s leading providers of private tutoring and homeschooling, Minerva’s Virtual Academy is a fully-fledged online independent school for pupils aged 12 – 18. Pupils study the British Curriculum from the comfort and safety of their own home, wherever they live in the world, receiving an affordable, world-class education to rival ‘mainstream’ school for the first time. The school enables its pupils to thrive both academically and socially online whilst helping them to develop the skills they need to succeed in the modern world. Pupils choose from 15 subjects at GCSE (A Levels from September). Personal mentors support each child outside lesson hours. A dynamic weekly timetable includes live lessons, virtual assemblies, after-school clubs, wellbeing sessions, and an exciting co-curricular learning programme that tackles the most urgent issues of the day. Minerva’s Virtual Academy is growing fast, led by a team of outstanding teachers who’ve come together to redefine what’s possible for school-age education in the 21st century.
