“King’s InterHigh is, in my opinion, one of the best things the internet can be used for. It’s great. I love it and recommend it to everyone.”
At King's InterHigh, we are dedicated to supporting home educating families and the wider homeschooling community. With a focus on high-quality teaching, personalised learning, and community, we work to provide an education that meets the needs of parents, guardians, and students.
To accommodate the preferences of homeschooling families in the UK, we do not notify your local authority when you join or leave King’s InterHigh (effective from August 2021). Parents and guardians have the choice of whether to inform their local authority. If you would like us to notify the authority on your behalf, you may also submit a request to us.
For families outside the UK, in countries with regulations around homeschooling, King’s InterHigh can provide a letter detailing our accreditation. Many parents and guardians have found these letters helpful to share with their country’s education body.
Online educators can provide homeschool support to families in search of high-quality teaching and resources for GCSEs, A Levels, and a variety of Primary and Secondary subjects. Whether you’re looking for help with complex subjects or you need a better way to balance working from home and homeschooling, online education is a great way to supplement your homeschool program.
Homeschooling your child online couldn’t be simpler with the support of King’s InterHigh. Our experienced teachers lead live, online lessons, and all class recordings are available to rewatch 24/7. Interaction and socialisation are encouraged with teachers on hand to answer any questions pupils may have. Parents can check up on their child’s learning through our parent portal, and every pupil has access to a personal control panel with homeschooling resources, a library, clubs, and more.
While you can choose King’s InterHigh for full support in all subjects, you are also welcome to enrol your child in individual courses of your choice. With partial support, you can teach your own homeschool curriculum your way, resting assured that your child also has access to the UK curriculum with high-quality teaching.
Whether joining as a full-time student, or selecting the three subject package developed as online support for home educators, the process for enrolling your child for online homeschooling is simple. You can sign up for online homeschooling support at any time during the academic year, too.
Students can be joining lessons live within just two days. To join King’s InterHigh, you’ll need to complete our online registration form and pay the £50 Registration Fee. You’ll then be able to enrol using our Enrolment Dashboard. Here, you’ll sign a contract, pay the initial fees and upload the required documents. This includes a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport, plus your proof of address.
We recommend students in Years 11 – 13 join us before the October half term. This is because students who join later and haven’t studied the same syllabus at their previous school will need to catch up on missed lessons in their own time.
If your child is applying to study the IB Diploma Programme, they must register by the October half term in the year they wish to begin studying. This means they’ll need to register by October 2022 at the latest in order to join the September 2022 cohort.

Many families consider online homeschooling effective, as this encourages child-led learning. No two learners are the same, and there are more opportunities for your child to embrace their uniqueness and study at a pace that feels comfortable to them.
Not everyone studies effectively from 9am – 4pm. With online homeschooling, your child can catch up with lesson recordings and resources at a time that suits them. As long as you have an internet connection, they can study anywhere they want, too. So, there’s no need to stay at home if this doesn’t feel comfortable.
Online learning enables your child to focus for their entire lesson, without the noise and disruption that can sometimes be experienced in a traditional school. This means they can progress at their own pace, feel comfortable in their learning environment, and explore other interests with more energy.
You and your child will have access to qualified subject specialists, which means you don’t have to feel pressured into teaching complicated topics. If your child has a question, they can note this down to be covered during the next live lesson. This gives you the peace of mind that your child is receiving a comprehensive education and covering the most up-to-date syllabus on tricky subjects.
There are several advantages to online homeschooling, including improved flexibility, socialisation, engagement, and wellbeing.
You can choose when and where your child is going to study. If they’re more productive in the morning, they can work during this time. Or if they’re more productive in the afternoon and evening, they can catch up with lessons later.
Many of our students have commitments outside of education. With lessons and resources available at any time, your child can study during the hours that fit around their lifestyle.
Your child can interact with their teachers and other students, giving them access to academic and personal support. Working with other students, they can break into groups to solve problems and complete lesson activities. This helps them build relationships to take into activities outside of lessons.
At King’s InterHigh, we have plenty of online clubs and extra-curricular activities for your child to join. This gives them an opportunity to meet other students with similar interests. They can also attend regular in-person events throughout the year, so they can get to know their new friends face-to-face. Many families also arrange meet ups in their local areas through our parent communities.
With fewer contact hours and no commute to school, it’s easier to focus on online lessons. You can supervise or sit in during your child’s lessons, providing support if needed. There’s also less risk of distraction from crowded and noisy classrooms.
Feeling comfortable at home can help your child develop emotional intelligence, curiosity and creativity. And with online homeschooling, you can plan their learning around the other commitments in their life, meaning they don’t need to compromise one or the other.
Extra-curricular activities allow them to be part of a community. They can meet other students, connect over shared interests and develop new skills.
