Welcome to Schoolhouse

Scotland’s National Home Education Support Charity

Who are we?

Schoolhouse is Scotland’s national home education charity (SCO26965), which was formed in 1996 and is now a well-established and well respected source of independent information and support for anyone interested in home education.

We aim to provide reassurance that home education is a legal and successful alternative to school, and is widely practised in Scotland. We hope you will find this website a useful resource and that you will consider becoming a member of Schoolhouse or making a donation to help us continue our work.

Schoolhouse is run entirely by volunteers and receives no government or local authority funding. It is entirely dependent on volunteers and public support.
