A Primary School Without Walls

Based in Crickhowell, InterHigh is the UK’s leading independent online secondary school.

This month it launches its primary school – InterHigh Juniors, which will offer the same quality, flexible, accessible and positive education online as its secondary school, for Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.

Established in 2005, InterHigh was founded by former secondary school teacher Paul Daniell and his wife Jacqueline with just 23 pupils on its books. Today, it teaches over 1,000 students worldwide from Year 7 through to AS and A Levels.

Paul, who is InterHigh’s headteacher, identified the need for an alternative to the ‘one size fits all’ physical secondary school approach to education. Following extensive research, Paul helped to develop a revolutionary online teaching model aimed at providing a more flexible, personal education and InterHigh was born.

InterHigh works just like a normal school but is online. Pupils can log in to live interactive lessons wherever there is an internet connection. It means there is less disruption and behavioural issues in class, so staff can concentrate on teaching for the entire period and pupils can learn at their own pace. All lessons are also recorded and accessible online 24/7, so pupils and parents can go over content at any time.

At InterHigh Juniors, qualified and experienced primary school teachers lead classes limited to a maximum of 15 pupils, to ensure each child gets the attention they deserve. Pupils will be taught the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum for England, which includes core subjects such as: English, Maths, Humanities, French, Science and Computing.

InterHigh Junior pupils will also have weekly tutorials and their own weekly common room with projects, activities and guest speakers. Pupils at InterHigh Juniors will also be able to operate in a safe social media environment, taking part in various online social groups and school clubs.
