Ensuring a quality performance on and off the field

Sporting and performing arts students have a tremendous challenge. Elite-level performance requires dedication and focus, yet it has to be balanced with the right attention to education. In the modern world of sport and entertainment, education is essential to navigating the complexities of the performing arts and sporting life, or as a fallback if things don’t work out. Progressive academies and stage schools recognise this and ensure that they provide quality teaching to their members.

The flexibility of King’s InterHigh’s online provision suits the demands of sporting and performing arts students, who must fit their education around training regimes, tournaments, rehearsals and performances. The combination of live lessons and recordings ensure students can always stay up to date or catch-up if they need to.

Above all, what we offer our young people is time. The effectiveness of our school means that pupils are ‘in school’ for only three or four hours a day, giving them an unrivalled opportunity to pursue their goals. It all adds up to make King’s InterHigh as individual as our pupils.

Features and benefits

Sporting academies and stage schools work with King’s InterHigh for a wide range of reasons. Below are just some of the features you can benefit from by partnering with us.

Flexible learning

King’s InterHigh’s online learning platform and lesson library allows for greater flexibility when it comes to fitting your learning around training sessions, tournaments, rehearsals and performances. This allows pupils to make great progress in their studies. Our pupils have control over their learning and their interactions around the school. The online platform provides a personal and engaging teaching experience where pupils can directly and discretely question their teachers during and after classes to ensure they have an in-depth understanding of the subject or topic before moving on.

Quality education

Our Key Stage 2, 3, 4 and 5 curriculum is taught by qualified, trained and experienced staff whose detailed knowledge of their subject is matched by their motivation and energy to see every pupil in their care succeed.

Real-time lessons

Lessons are live and led by our expert faculty. Within timetabled lessons, we utilise a number of teaching and learning methods. These range from exercise lessons which can be small breakout groups of 2-3 students, right up to lead lessons which are subject masterclasses demonstrating new topics and knowledge.

24/7 access to curriculum and lesson library

The effectiveness of our learning platform means that pupils are able to watch any missed lessons back in full. This ensures greater flexibility for students at sporting academies, as well as providing them with a useful resource for revision, project work and to consolidate learning.
