Blackhen Education is an online school founded in 2011, which caters to English-speaking children living abroad. We offer English language courses for students aged 4 to 16 years and British history courses for students aged 11 to 14 years.
Our courses are designed to follow the UK National Curriculum guidelines. Our tutors are fully qualified, experienced British teachers from both the primary and secondary sectors.
Blackhen Education was started with the desire to introduce a fun and inspiring way for English speaking children living abroad to maintain and develop their mother tongue. We became aware of parents who were concerned that their children had either forgotten how to read and write in English, or had never learnt how to.
We believe that to be truly bilingual, a child needs to be able to read and write in both languages, as well as being able to speak both. We believe it offers the child more choices; if they decide at a later date to work or study in the UK, they will need to be proficient in English.
