At the end of January, we drafted Curriculum Overviews and Schemes of Work for the King Alfred School’s application to the UK government to be an Independent School. Their application was submitted by January 31st, 2021.
Pitch to our Church (Christ Church Anglican) happened on February 7th, 2021.
We purchased plane tickets, began selling our stuff, and stored some more in February/March of 2021.
In May/June, we finished selling our items, shipped the most important things, and attended as many farewell dinners and gathers as possible.
At the beginning of July, we flew to London and were picked up by Tom’s parents. We took up residence at Lynbrook on the 5th.
July/August will be spent on final preparations for the school’s first year and any short trips.
September 6th, 2021, the first term (Michaelmas) begins!
Goal: $10,000 to cover shipping costs, plane tickets, visa applications, NHS fees, initial deposit, and new furniture.
We have this money tucked away in savings and plan to continue to add to it in the coming months.
Goal: $2900-3000 a month.
Progress: 32 families have pledged support! We are waiting for a few other pledges to come in. Currently we have 100% of what we originally asked for!
Now that God has provided so generously, we have set a new goal to cover the moving funds and initial start up expenses. We not only met but also surpassed our stretch goal! We should be able to cover some of the intitial expenses with the extra.
If you are interested in other things I am in the middle of, that is all here.
