"King's InterHigh has been great as my acting career has developed . . . my school in Ireland was not as helpful in trying to catch up with time away or with the same broad curriculum. The recording of lessons means that I can watch them all across the world and still submit the homework."
William Franklyn-Miller | Actor, model and social media star
I started in London at a private prep school and then we moved to Melbourne. I was so lucky to attend Scotch College in Melbourne. I have some really good friends from my time there and it is an excellent school. They were really good helping me manage my time off and always helped me catch up and get ahead with sport, school and acting. Acting puts you under extra pressure with auditions and learning of scripts, as well as time off for on set work and it is sometimes difficult to get a full balance.
King’s InterHigh has been great as my acting career has developed. I started just after I landed a role on CW’s Arrow and was filming in Vancouver, and my school in Ireland was not as helpful in trying to catch up with time away or with the same broad curriculum. The recording of lessons means that I can watch them all across the world and still submit the homework (although often at really strange times of day). It would be great if King’s InterHigh offered a tutor system, which is what I miss from Scotch, where one teacher helps with coordinating catch up and missing areas of focus when you are away, but that is only one fault – the system is great and using the online timetable lets me see what I need to catch up on and when I need to submit homework – that’s easy.
My biggest role yet is in Medici: The Magnificent on Netflix at the end of 2019, I have also just filmed the YouTube series for Brat Chicken Girls which was out in March and hopefully have great news on a huge project coming soon, fingers crossed.
King’s InterHigh let’s me balance my study and acting commitments pretty well. I am really aware that acting is such a risky business, that it can all stop tomorrow and that I need different plans and options in case. Also I like learning and I have been surprised at the range of subjects that I can study – I am enjoying film studies too which was new for me this year.
I have studied in airports, on the beach, in hotel rooms from New York to LA to Tokyo to Rome and of course at home. Given the travel, and time zones a lot of the watching is of the recordings, and it can be frustrating if I am working 9 hours behind but the system hasn’t yet uploaded the video of the lesson, but it gives me an unexpected break at times! I like it most at home at my desk, when it feels like normal school.
It is such an obvious choice, giving the opportunity to work at the same time as school, the flexibility is great watching lectures in the evening or weekends and also the feedback from teachers is really quick and detailed. The UK GCSE system is also pretty well respected and so the exams in the end are so useful whether I go to university in the UK or US.
