Our Parents and Pupils
Stories from our fantastic community

At My Online Schooling, we have a fantastic community of pupils and parents. The chance to improve their future is why we exist. So, for educators like us, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the progress our pupils have achieved or hearing about the difference that online education has made in their lives.

A few of our pupils and their families have been kind enough to share their stories – watch the videos below to hear about their experience with us at My Online Schooling.

The Clarke's Story

Alex's Story

My online schooling has been an absolute blessing for our son. He was struggling with the growing pressures at day school so that by the end of each term he was stressed and depressed. We discovered MOS and his whole world changed. He is now thriving and enjoying learning. The subjects he is particularly good at he can study at a more advanced level as he is not limited to his age level. As a result he is now happy and has the desire to learn and explore subjects in depth.

“We are very pleased with our daughter’s progress with MOS since starting in January. At mainstream school, she was missing a lot of lessons due to daily panic attacks, but these have almost completely stopped, and her anxiety is much improved. She has ADHD, so the fact that the lessons are recorded, and there is an online homework calendar helps with her self organisation, and although she still needs our help on that front, we are seeing an improvement in the quality and quantity of her work, her test scores, and reports. Most importantly, she is happier and more confident. We are delighted to have had MOS available as an option when she was no longer able to attend school. The teaching is of high quality, and she looks forward to lessons for the first time in years. MOS may have been our “Plan B”, but it’s very far from being second best.”

Our daughter had a difficult school experience, mostly because of bullying. It was heart breaking to watch our bright, bubbly and happy girl who loved learning turn into a withdrawn, sad one who could not cope.

We feel blessed to have stumbled upon My Online Schooling. We were initially sceptical as we weren’t sure whether our daughter would cope in a virtual classroom. We need not have worried. In no time at all, she was able to type, complete homework online, use PowerPoint and complete a Wiki project. The more we see, the more confident that it is setting the children up with skills they will need for the future, and more so than mainstream schools.

Far more important than her academic progress are the strides she made in her self-esteem. She loves getting up in the morning for school, and the amazing school trip to the Lake District was the highlight of her term. She is once again the happy, fun-loving child we know and love. We could not be more pleased.

We decided to join My Online Schooling because we had emigrated and we weren’t sure of the area we were moving to. Because we come from South Africa where the kids start school a year later than the kids in the UK, both Noah and Jesse were behind a little in their learning. Having them in an online school really helped so much as it is more focused to each child’s needs.

My children both love My Online Schooling so much and I can highly recommend this school. The teachers are amazing and are great with the kids. Lessons are made fun and the team have been wonderful in assisting us with everything.

I chose online schooling because I wanted my child to receive a broad and balanced curriculum from excellent teachers. I wanted him to have homework that was set and marked by teachers so he would be accountable to them and not just his mum!

My child lacked motivation before starting with My Online Schooling. He’s now more confident and keen to learn. He is 2 years advanced in Science but needs more help in his literacy. His timetable is adapted to personalise his unique needs. The school is very efficient and flexible. The team are very approachable and understanding so it is so easy to contact them with any concerns.

When we go to Italy later on during term time he can still do his lessons and not miss out! When he does miss a lesson due to illness or a pre-planned event, he can catch up with the recorded lessons.

I am so happy that I chose this online school rather than others.

My son is really enjoying learning with My Online Schooling. The lessons are engaging and well-organised, and it is fascinating to see how all the children are able to participate in learning: a far cry from the class of 30 he left behind. He was miserable at school for years and this has been transformational for him, thank you!
