The 4th Annual Home Education Fair

The Home Education Fair is a terrific opportunity to find out all about home education: how it works, what researchers say, find a home education group near you, young people who were home educated and hear about the imminent government plans to limit your freedoms with regard to education and how to help fight this.

Saturday 19 September 1-5pm

Westbourne Grove Church, Westbourne Grove, London W11. (corner of Ledbury Road and Westbourne Grove) 5-10 minutes walk from Notting Hill (Central, Circle)

Entrance: Free

There will be talks by academics in the field of home education about its theory and practice as well as talks about the imminent government plans to limit freedoms with regard to education. There will also be workshops on various areas of home education and a panel of young adults who were home educated will talk about the experience. Plus there will be stalls of national groups such as Education Otherwise, Choice in Education, and Home Education Advisory Service offering information, books and leaflets - including details of the many home education groups across London and the South East.

Children can enjoy craft activities in the play area while home educated young people will keep everyone supplied with tea and home-made cakes.

This year again we will be part of International Freedom in Education (IFED). IFED promotes educational freedoms internationally with events around the world to celebrate!

Whether you are thinking about home education for your own family, have heard about the threat to educational freedom or just want to know why more and more families are choosing it, you’ll find it all at the Home Education Fair.
