Online School: FAQ

There’s little doubt that what young people want has changed in recent years. Whilst they understand that a good education is important, it’s no longer their only goal. Instead, education has evolved into something that needs to support their personal growth as they seek to develop their own distinctive voice and life path. Full-time online schooling can be the perfect answer for many students.

One quality shared by most King’s College Online students is that they’re striving for something beyond simply being at school. Driven from an early age and motivated to work hard and succeed at whatever they put their minds to, they see education as an enabler. 

By recognising that our students are independent-minded and self-motivated, we’ve been able to develop methods that teach the whole child while encouraging their entrepreneurial spirit to prosper. 

We therefore use the latest technology to bring together the best teachers and personalised support from our global network of prestigious schools and combine this with extra-curricular activities to create a holistic programme bespoke to each student. This flexible approach is ideal for anyone who thrives under a more individualised learning style, or whose local schooling system might not help them fulfil their academic potential. 

Being able to tap into our teaching expertise from all over the world can also appeal to those with worldly ambitions. Families are increasingly looking for schooling that fits their life and works around their unique needs. So, for globe-trotting households, knowing their children can learn anywhere and anytime alongside students from every continent delivers a great deal of comfort. 

Similarly, many of our students have set their sights on the best universities across the world before they start an international career. Location is therefore no barrier, and our fully online school allows them to study at a time and pace that suits them, while delivering the flexibility they need to truly flourish.  

Finally, our innovative online learning programme tends to suit those with a growth mindset who recognise the value of challenging themselves.  Our students understand that persistence and working hard are even more essential to being able to follow their dreams as innate ‘smartness’. With their passion for learning, and curiosity about the wider world, they appreciate that mistakes present a valuable stepping-stone in their educational journey and remain in control of their own destiny throughout. 

Ultimately, we believe the role of educators is to empower students to forge their own paths. Key to this is stimulating their minds and equipping them with the skills and confidence to achieve their personal ambitions. If you share our mindset, King’s College Online is the smart choice for you and your family.

More students are now choosing online school as a full time alternative to their local school. While the switch to online can take a little adjusting, here we share a few simple ways to stay focused, maximise your online effectiveness and get the most out of your virtual education.

1)    Start organised to stay on track

The “start as you mean to go on” adage is the perfect attitude to online learning. There is no doubt that this educational style requires independent learning skills, so we recommend our students take some time to figure out what approach to keeping on top of deadlines might work best for them.
Where some people might find creating an online calendar or using task-scheduling apps suits them best, many others prefer something tangible by their desk, such as a white-board.
The same applies to note-taking during lessons. Whether these are done digitally or by hand, it’s essential that they are clearly named and methodically filed away to ensure they’re easy to find, review and revise from. This might mean having a dedicated notebook per subject or creating a series of folders and subfolders per class at the beginning of the academic year to cover everything from class materials to homework.
Whatever system you choose, the crucial factor is that it works for you, and that students develop good, consistent habits. 

2)    Take control of the way you learn

One of the great benefits of online school at King’s College Online is that lessons are recorded so that you can watch them again whenever you like to help reinforce the key points. 
With such a wide range of materials shared by our teachers in preparation for class discussions, it’s important that students proactively make time to review these to ensure everyone’s starting from the same baseline level of knowledge.
However, part of taking personal responsibility for one’s own learning is not being afraid to tell your tutor if there’s anything you didn’t fully understand, or asking for help if you need additional guidance. This is one of the reasons we combine our regular classes with smaller weekly tutorial groups plus a dedicated personal tutor for fully personalised support. 

3)    Stay engaged through active participation

Our experience indicates that students learn best when they join in the discussion. Which is why we encourage all our students to take an active role in their daily classes and nurture a growth mindset by testing out their ideas.

By using Microsoft Teams for our lessons, being brave can be as straightforward as putting your hand up in the chat forum or contributing to the conversations on the group chat or during breakout sessions with your peers. 
We recommend keeping your camera’s and microphones on in the tutorial sessions so you can interact spontaneously like you would in a face-to-face lesson.

4)    Welcome feedback in all its forms

When you join in a group discussion, this interaction opens the door for your teacher to share immediate feedback and help you stay motivated. However, debating a topic with peers can also be an invaluable way to deepen your understanding of a topic, consider other angles and, ultimately, develop your own opinions.

Active learners act on suggestions while they’re fresh in their mind, and regularly review learnings to reinforce ideas. We encourage students to think of homework critique as an opportunity to receive specific targets to improve on and constructive ways on how to drive their own education forward. 

Ultimately, we want our students to embrace challenges and reframe learning gaps as an opportunity to progress and become even more effective in the future. So being able to recognise your own potential to improve is a huge strength, and a vital stepping-stone to success.  

5)    Look after yourself and strive for balance

There’s more to creating the optimum working environment than simply having a dedicated desk area with good lighting, the right seating and everything you need to study close at hand. 
To get the most out of online learning, we think students should place equal emphasis on focused time away from the computer. Whilst our teachers build in plenty of offline activities to ensure students have screen-free periods, it’s also important students remember to take regular breaks, find exercise they enjoy, and schedule extra-curricular activities.
Having a clear divide between home and school life is also essential from a wellbeing perspective. For some families, this may include being able to create a physical as well as psychological separation by setting up their school station in a different part of the house. 
Ultimately, the key to success is to achieve a healthy balance. And, with our tried and tested teaching approaches, we’re confident we can help your family achieve this. 

With the way we live and work changing dramatically, finding a school that’s adapting at the same pace is paramount. Since its launch last year, King’s College Online has been offering the perfect blend of online and offline learning for students aged 14-18, aimed at families looking for schooling that fits their life now and in the future.

Combining academic success with the flexibility of learning from anywhere, anytime, with students from all over the world, King’s College Online means no compromising. For forward-thinking families, finding the education that works around each child’s individual needs is incredibly important, and for some the mainstream choice doesn’t suit them. Instead of fitting your lives around school, imagine a world where schools fits around your life. King’s College Online aims to be the best full-time online school in the world, delivering flexibility coupled with the assurance of achieving the academic results that underpin a child’s future.

Through a combination of bespoke technology and the best offline resources and support, King’s College Online delivers live-streamed and recorded lessons, tutor-led study groups, 1:1s on request, cycle testing, parental reporting, co-curricular activities, pastoral care and more.

Exceptional offline experiences include short or extended in-school placements and attending summer or academic camps at one of the Inspired schools around the world. Inspired students can connect with students from across the Inspired network and take part in global Inspired initiatives. The King’s College Online approach affords greater individualisation, more personalisation with personal learning plans and personal tutors who really get to know each child’s path to success, plus coaching and university counselling.

King’s College Online teaches International GCSEs and A levels, delivering an education centred around personal ambitions and the academic results that will secure each student’s future. The school offers the assurance of academic performance that comes with being part of the Inspired Education Group. Over 90 per cent of Inspired students get their first-choice university and one in three attend Russel Group and Ivy League universities.

“When is school returning to normal?” is not a question asked our King’s College Online students during the pandemic; for them virtual education is the norm and here to stay. Since the launch last year, the school has offered the perfect blend of online and offline learning for students aged 14-18.

In recent years, the way we live and work has changed dramatically, yet schooling has not changed at the same pace. Families are now looking for schooling that fits their life. This is the perfect time to consider an online school that provides academic success with the flexibility of learning from anywhere, anytime with students from all over the world.

Combining the latest online technology with the best offline resources and support, the school delivers live-streamed lessons, tutor-led study groups, regular assessments, co-curricular activities, pastoral care and more.
