If your child requires Special Consideration or Access Arrangements (for example, extra time or use of a laptop) during examinations, let your exam centre know during the booking process. Each centre has its own policy on how to organise these arrangements.

Your child may need to undergo an educational assessment to determine the appropriate arrangements. This is often the case for students with dyslexia or learning difficulties.

Alternatively, you may need to provide evidence of your child’s need from a specialist. This typically applies to students on the autism spectrum and those with ADHD, mental health needs, or medical needs.

King’s InterHigh can also provide a statement about your child’s usual way of working to support your request.

However, there are some key differences between the two. IGCSEs can be studied anywhere in the world, and some IGCSE subjects include more globalised content. IGCSE exams are also available in three sessions per year (May to June, November, or January) to accommodate all students. All IGCSEs at King’s InterHigh are assessed entirely through examinations, and some subjects may be graded using the traditional ‘A* to G’ system (rather than the new ‘9 to 1’ scale).

We also offer two subjects as GCSEs: Film Studies and Psychology. Students must be able to take exams in a UK exam centre to study these subjects.

Teaching and Learning

If a student will be absent from class, parents can notify us through the parent portal.

King’s InterHigh offers a flexible approach to learning, making it perfect for students who may not be able to attend every lesson. All classes are recorded and uploaded for viewing at any time, 24/7. If learners miss a class, they’re free to watch the lesson recording at any time. Students can also email their teachers directly for additional guidance if needed.

20 5

All lessons are taught live online with interactive elements. Attending classes according to their timetables, students can interact with their teachers and classmates through video, audio, and text.

For the utmost flexibility, we also record every live lesson. These class recordings (along with lesson resources) are available to view at any time, 24/7.

At King’s InterHigh, we offer small class sizes of no more than 20 students for our Explore lessons. In these classes, students delve into the learning with discussions, digital tools and technologies, breakout rooms, and more. Explore lessons are proceeded by a lecture-style Learn class, which is a larger class session focused on top-level concepts.

Core subjects (English, Maths, and Science) offer additional weekly support classes, though provision may vary across year groups. Students can also contact their teachers for additional help. For students with EHCPs (Education, Health and Care Plans), our wellbeing team is on hand to help create effective study plans.

Many students also make great use of their lesson recordings to get up to speed on difficult concepts. Learners are free to rewatch any past lesson at any time, going over material that they didn’t grasp the first time around.

Our teachers use a variety of tools and teaching methods to differentiate content for each student. This ensures all learners are appropriately supported or challenged, driving consistent academic progress. Some of these tools include breakout rooms for small group work and self-marking quizzes.

Learners will sit a baseline assessment that currently takes place twice a year (October and March), along with short, informal assessments such as quizzes each week. At the end of each topic, teachers set a longer assessment (such as a written assignment) to test understanding in-depth.

This programme of assessment is designed to track students’ progress efficiently and make sure learners are sufficiently supported or challenged without causing academic stress. If teachers spot that a student is falling behind or exceeding expectations, they can adjust that students content appropriately.

On average, students receive one piece of homework per subject per week, but exact homework amounts are decided at each teacher’s discretion. Homework may include a mix of short quizzes, handwritten or drawn assignments, longer written assignments, and so on.

IGCSEs and A Levels are highly respected by sixth forms, colleges, universities, and employers around the world. Alongside high-level academic understanding, these qualifications teach a wide range of transferrable skills that can be applied to the world of work or higher education.

All universities in the UK accept IGCSE and A Level qualifications. Most top international universities also accept IGCSEs and A Levels, but we advise checking the admission requirements for your child’s university of choice.

Most subjects involve three 40-minute lessons per week, for a total of two hours per subject. Total classes per week depend on how many subjects a student is taking. For example, those taking seven subjects will have around 21 lessons per week, or 4 to 5 each day. Students will also take part in tutor group sessions and optional exercise classes.

InterHigh offers a different way of learning to the traditional physical school, the online environment provided has large benefits for a learner with special educational needs. Students accessing their lessons from home, in an environment they are comfortable in and can control. We also provide firm and consistent boundaries for students who require this approach. There is no negative behaviour to interact with in an InterHigh classroom and any behaviour from the student does not impact on other learners or cause disciplinary issues for the student. The teacher can restrict student access to general chat, private chat, microphone access and indeed the classroom itself. Students are aware of these controls and therefore respond to these firm boundaries. The teacher can set questions via a Q&A pod with only the teacher seeing the responses and therefore students are not anxious in answering questions or giving opinions. InterHigh do currently offer support classes for English, Maths and Science at KS3 and 4 but these are drop-in sessions to help with current classwork and homework issues rather than special educational needs classes. InterHigh already has students with Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP’s) and Statements of Special Educational Needs (Wales) placed with us with funding provided by the Local Authority.

Your exam centre will provide you with your child’s ICGSE or A Level results once they are available. These grades can be used to apply to Sixth Forms, colleges, or universities.

Our digital classroom environment at King’s InterHigh is designed to avoid behavioural issues, disruptions, and distractions. If needed, teachers can restrict a student’s access to chat or microphone communication until the end of the lesson. Teachers can also separate students into breakout rooms so they can talk through behaviour and remedy the situation after class ends.

All students are informed of the rules and controls in place. In turn, this creates a positive learning atmosphere for all students and helps ease worries for learners who have been bullied in the past.
