How we teach

Delivering the highest standards

How online teaching works

We’ve harnessed the power of technology to develop a system that works. No matter where our pupils are in the world, we can deliver the standard of teaching that supports their achievement and drives their development. Once your child enrols, we’ll provide access to our online school portal – called PowerSchool – where you can find class pages for each of their chosen subjects. On these pages, you can access learning materials, message the teacher, submit homework and socialise with fellow pupils in the common room.

Access anywhere

Both our PowerSchool platform and our virtual classrooms are accessible from anywhere. Just log in and learn.

Engaging variety

Lessons are interactive and will include presentations, readings, question-and-answer sessions and more.

Two-way communications

Pupils do more than just watch. They can make their voice heard, send messages or use our ‘hands up’ feature.

Smaller than traditional classes

We limit our classes to a maximum of 20 pupils, so every child can get one-on-one support if they need it.

When it’s time for a lesson, our pupils log in to an online classroom where they’re welcomed by their teacher and fellow pupils. The lessons are varied and engaging, with the chance to keep in constant communication with the teacher and other pupils through voice, text or interactive presentation.

With classes kept to a maximum of 20 pupils, there’s plenty of scope for one-to-one interaction and support. And, with ‘break-out rooms’, the teacher can split the class into groups, while our ‘hands up’ feature gives pupils the chance to ask questions.

Each lesson lasts for an hour, then the teacher sets a homework assignment to build on what they’ve covered in the classroom.

Demo Lessons

You can see how a typical lesson works by watching one of our demos.

Making the most of today’s technology, our system is a world away from the traditional classroom. It’s also an approach that delivers the highest standards of teaching and learning for our pupils – and we’re always looking for new methods to innovate and improve what we do.
