Curriculum and Subjects - 2021/2022

Our curriculum

A global standard
for 21st Century Education

At My Online Schooling, we teach the English National Curriculum (ENC). The ENC is a very well established and recognised curriculum known for providing a broad and balanced, structured education that is relevant and progressive for pupils. Our qualified teachers deliver a curriculum based on the ENC in a coherent, progressive and interactive way. We currently offer a range of subjects at Key Stage Two (KS2), Key Stage Three (KS3), International General Certificate of Secondary Education (International GCSE) Level and Advanced Level/ International Advanced Level (A Level / International A Level).

The English National Curriculum is not only taught in the vast majority of schools in England, but also used by thousands of international and British schools around the world. The curriculum is divided into Key Stages:

  • Key Stage 1 (Primary): Year Groups 1-2 (age 5-7)*
  • Key Stage 2 (Primary): Year Groups 3-6 (age 7-11)
  • Key Stage 3 (Secondary): Year Groups 7-9 (age 11-14)
  • Key Stage 4 (Secondary): Year Groups 10 & 11 (age 14-16)
  • Key Stage 5 (Secondary): Year Groups 12 & 13 (age 16-18)

As such, this provides the baseline standards of what pupils should be learning in each subject for each stage and age, setting programmes of study which our teachers then convert into lessons delivered in the virtual classroom.

Our range of subjects

My Online Schooling Courses
2021/2022 Academic Year

We offer a range of subjects at Key Stage Two (KS2), Key Stage Three (KS3), International  GCSE (KS4) and A Level (KS5).

Key Stage 2
Junior School

For pupils at KS2 level, we offer an engaging core curriculum package that covers all key curricular areas and increasingly promotes independent learning. We keep class sizes small and every lesson is taught live by an experienced Junior teacher, so your child is engaged and supported at every step of their learning.

Key Stage 3
Secondary School

We offer an excellent programme of study in Years 7, 8 and 9 as pupils move into their Secondary education. Our subject specialist teachers deliver a coherent and engaging curriculum that develops pupils’ learning skills and promotes increased independent learning. The use of the break out room feature in our online classes allows for discussions and collaborative work.

KS4 International GCSE
Secondary School

In Year 10 our pupils typically begin two years of study toward achieving their International GCSEs, which are the global equivalent of UK GCSEs and are awarded by the Pearson Edexcel examination board.

The International GCSE is an ideal qualification for online education, as it can be assessed 100% externally and it doesn’t involve any coursework. While it offers the same level of qualification, it is widely considered to be more challenging and rigorous than a GCSE. It’s also a linear qualification, meaning pupils take all of the exams at the end of the course, in May/June of Year 11.

KS5 International AS and A Levels
Secondary School

In Year 12, pupils can then progress onto Cambridge International accredited AS and A Levels. These qualifications involve studying the theory of a subject, combined with some investigative work. AS Levels generally take a year to complete, acting as the foundation for the A Levels, which pupils then take in Year 13.

Your child's progress:

Measuring Performance

at My Online Schooling

Progress in our classes is measured with every lesson and with assessments every term. For every subject we use the descriptors: “working towards expected level of attainment”, “working at expected level of attainment” or “working above expected level of attainment” to state your child’s level of performance.

Of course, it’s important to remember that every child is different – learning in different ways and at different rates. With small class sizes and a flexible approach, we offer an individualised style of learning that reflects and meets their needs. At every step of your child’s progress, we work hard to ensure that they enjoy a rich, coherent and engaging learning experience where they are respected as an individual, enjoy learning and are empowered to thrive.
