The Virtual School has a message for you!

Dear Planet Science Followers,

Are you passionate about engaging science education? Have you ever thought how cool it would be to film your experiments or give learners the chance to go back at the point of need to that bit of a lesson they didn't understand?

Then join The Virtual School's quest for equal access to the highest quality secondary education for every learner in the UK and globally - anytime, anywhere and completely free of charge.

The Virtual School creates state of the art, truly subject-specific science learning resources. To achieve that, we collaborate with specialist teachers from the UK's outstanding schools who are really passionate about their subject.

Watch this video to understand how teachers can contribute explanations in an easy to learn and fun activity. The open educational resources co-created by participant teachers and our visual designers are made available free of charge to students, parents and teachers around the world on our easy-to-use open learning environment and our YouTube channel.

The Virtual School's award-winning social learning platform lets students and teachers participate in:

  • Meaningful and fun online interactions around the excellent science, maths, English and ICT learning resources & functionalities such as adaptive testing, preparation tools & engaging educational games.
  • UK-wide communities for teachers to share teaching best practice in their subject with specialist teachers from leading schools.

Are you a teacher and interested in participating in the program and reaching out to children in need of better education, just like many outstanding teachers already do? Just email us at and we will walk you through the process step by step!
