"I don't want them to be teenagers in LA. No way," Gwyneth told Red magazine. "I'm looking at this like two years, three years tops, then we will go back."
"It's part of my parenting philosophy that children should get the opportunity to reinvent themselves at a few points in their childhood," added Gwyneth, who is mother to Apple, nine, and Moses, seven. "To see where their strengths and weaknesses lie and to experience living in different cultures.
"It's an experiment," she said. "We'll see."
The Iron Man actress and her Coldplay front man husband relocated to LA in July to be closer to Gwyneth's family.
Around the 10-year anniversary of her father's unexpected death Gwyneth decided to move nearer to her mother Blythe Danner and her brother Jake Paltrow.
At the time Gwyneth said that the move was only temporary while her childrens' schooling would be unaffected.
"Gwyneth's children have English accents," said a source. "Once they start senior school she says the family will likely return to the UK because she believes that the English education system is second to none."
