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.
Visa Applications will be submitted as soon as possible: three months prior to when we plan to move to England. We will be applying for a Tier 5 Religious Worker Visa.
In May/June, we will finish up selling our items, ship what remains, and host all our farewell parties.
At the beginning of July, we will fly to London and then be picked up by Tom and Hayley. We have a place to move into!
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. With this new goal, we are looking to raise an additional $2600 to cap things off.
If you are interested in other things I am in the middle of, that is all here.
