Petra Ecclestone and her fiancé Sam Palmer are homeschooling their children. 

The Formula One heiress, 32, and the aspiring real estate agent and businessman, 38, who live in Los Angeles, have decided to teach their kids at home, after the latter revealed his disdain for ‘woke stupidity’ on many curriculums. 

The couple have daughter Millie, 18 months, while Petra shares Lavinia, nine, and twins James Robert Fredrick Jr and Andrew Kulbir, six, with ex James Stunt, although the children call Sam ‘dad’ amid Petra’s fraught relationship with James. 

Sam took to Instagram earlier this month to document their arrangement, as he penned: ‘We home school. We have teachers. And sport coaches. I was against it initially, but I have to say I really love it. We get to spend more time as a family.’

‘Woke stupidity’: Petra Ecclestone and her fiancé Sam Palmer are homeschooling their children

He explained: ‘We get to choose what’s being taught to our kids. And it will certainly not include woke stupidity like I’ve seen in some schools’. 

Petra, whose net worth is over £200 million, and Sam insist they do not think their children are losing out by not being at a normal school. 

On the social aspect and ensuring they see friends, Sam said: ‘There are four of them anyway so they are never alone, and also go to sports clubs.’ 

Sam regularly shares insights into home life with his 16.6k Instagram followers and while the family choose not to share their children’s faces, he obscures the kids’ image among snippets of home life.

Sam has spoken candidly in the past about his fractious relationship with Petra’s ex-husband and baby daddy James, who has often hit back. 

Petra and James’ divorce was finalised in October 2017, after six years of marriage.

 While no details of the settlement were released, it was reported that James signed a £16m prenup, with Petra also awarded sole custody of the couple’s three children.

The reveal comes after the couple put their £170m home in the UK up for sale.

In a recent clip, produced by Architectural Digest, Petra and Sam introduce people to their Grade II listed home, which has been transformed into a modern palace plush with gold and crystal detail.

As cameras are let into the home for the first time, Bernie Ecclestone’s youngest daughter, who’s family is worth an estimated £2billion, says: ‘This project took me five years to complete and is a home that I absolutely adore.’

It’s an unusual step for fiercely private Petra – who admitted the home will be ‘hard to sell’ and has previously spoke about how she relocated her family to Los Angeles as she no longer felt safe at her luxury London home.
