What says..

Unusual Schools

Cast aside all preconceptions you have ever had about schools: classrooms, desks, kids, clangour, clutter, the smell of sweaty changing rooms or long-boiled cabbage (ok, probably quinoa salad these days), dusty tomes/sleek IT, the head sweeping by with a swish of his/her gown, the pupils stiffened against the corridor wall, cheering from the pitches, sweet singing in the choir and so on – and welcome to InterHigh.

Founded in 2005 in response to a perceived need for an alternative to physical school, InterHigh is an entirely virtual school, where students and teachers never sit together in the same room; indeed never see each other, yet manage 4 hours intense tuition a day and achieve the kind of results any non-selective school would be happy with.

Who on earth would want that?

Well, a surprising number of young people

What the school says...

InterHigh was established in 2005 and currently has around 600 students worldwide. Lessons are delivered by rofessionally qualified teachers and the students log into virtual classrooms.

Our school offers a uniquely flexible approach to learning, empowering students to take control and supporting their academic progress and success. 69% of the IGCSE grades reported by students in 2015 were A*-C with 35% at A* or A; around half of our A-Level students go on to study at the university of their choice and a number have attended Oxford and Cambridge. ...Read more

What the parents say...

My daughter has just completed her first year at Interhigh and we are hugely pleased with it. She loves the lessons and has made really good progress academically. Her teachers have been very supportive and approachable and her homework has been marked promptly and with good feedback. She has made good friends (they all skype each other!) and enjoys the banter of being in a class, albeit a virtual one. Our only problem so far is that our daughter is so fond of her teachers that she's upset not to have them next year! I'm sure she'll like her Y8 teachers just as much. Interhigh has been the perfect schooling solution for us and represents great value for money.

My daughters been attending interhigh for 4 years. She is excited about her subjects, is able to focus, and is a confident young lady. This is an excellent way of educating and she still has association in the virtual classroom so doesn't feel isolated. They also have an annual get together which is great for forging friends from all over.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
