"As a parent I have felt a huge weight off my shoulders, as I know that the children have developed new skills and expanded their minds while learning at home." - Joanna
Rainbow Fox Academy is run by Victoria Simpson (seen here, left). Victoria has a BA (QTS) in Primary Education with a specialism in English and an MA in The Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing. Vicki has been a teacher for over 20 years and has worked with children from Nursery to Year 6 including many children with additional learning needs. She has held leadership roles as school SENCo and Early Years Leader. She has been Subject Coordinator for art, drama, English, ICT and music.

At Rainbow Fox Academy we believe that children learn more when they are inspired by a project. We feel that it is important to encourage independent skills and cross-curricular learning to ensure each child receives a broad and enriching educational experience.
Learning should be a fun, memorable and positive experience.
Testimonials from parents and carers...
"My children (aged 8 and 11) loved having Vicki as their teacher! She is extremely organised, and comes up with highly engaging topics and activities to help the children to learn while having fun. Vicki is tuned into the children’s individual personalities, and makes school interesting for each of them."
"My daughter (age 8) really enjoyed her time with Vicki learning about some new topics, her favourite being Natural Disasters!
Vicki is very approachable and encouraging and makes learning fun which is so important."
"Biggest compliment I can give is that both my kids started each week excited about what they were going to learn and spent each week sharing their achievements.
Most importantly, the things they've learnt with Vicki have really stuck and she's been able to really help land some difficult concepts that they've struggled with in the past"
"My son, 8, joined Vicki's online classes during lockdown. He can be quite shy and I had really struggled to get him to engage with learning with me at home. Vicki came to our rescue and over the weeks he developed confidence in himself and participated more and more.
Vicki is absolutely amazing at tailoring subjects to bring out the best in children whilst still covering different aspects of the curriculum and making it fun. She is kind, enthusiastic and very funny."
"My daughter loved having Vicki as her teacher. She really connected with her and was excited to learn every day! She even loved doing maths with Vicki, which she didn't used to like at school.
She particularly enjoyed learning about rocks and crystals as this has always been a hobby she wanted to learn more about.
Vicki is an amazing teacher and very focused about her teaching. We feel lucky that she was and is our daughter's teacher."
