What we do

Photo of a boy standing a ladder drawing a large chalk spaceship on a wallFlying Tree was founded in 2019 to use technology to make home-education as rewarding and accessible as possible, for both parents and children.

All our apps and services are designed and built alongside home‑educating parents.

Star Compass (work in progress)

Star Compass (work in progress) is an easy and elegant work journal designed for home-ed, with optional feedback from experienced mentors and tutors, if you want it.

Keep notes on what you're doing, and learning, via our mobile app and website. We'll turn them into a well designed report and offer to give feedback and ideas.

All our tutors are well-versed in the principles behind home-education and won't try to encourage you into any particular way of doing home-ed. The idea is to help you, not tell you what to do.

This app is currently under development (screenshots in this section are illustrative mock-ups only). We're really keen to talk to as many home-educating parents as we can, so if you want to be involved in developing this, or just want to meet up for a chat, please get in touch.
