My name is Wayne Owens and I am proud to be the Executive Headteacher of this thriving, unique, vibrant and extraordinary school.
In some ways, InterHigh is just like any other school. We have highly qualified and professional staff; we have timetabled lessons; we have homework to be done and we have many students who achieve great success, doing well enough to go on and fulfil their dreams, whether it be in employment or further study at the UK’s leading universities.
Students come to us from everywhere to make the most of the opportunities provided by a high-quality British education, delivered through a state-of-the-art online learning platform. Pupils learn in the way that suits them best so that they are prepared for the future. However, there is also a significant difference that sets us apart and makes us rather special. All of our teaching and learning takes place in online classrooms, so, our school catchment is the world.
Many of our students are typical of those found in other schools but some of our students have struggled elsewhere and have come to us because we provide a way of achieving success. Others have come to us because online education represents a tremendously exciting way of learning, as well as a glimpse into the future of education.
Some of the UK’s brightest students study with us, as do some students with extraordinary gifts in sport, business, music and drama, who seek to combine their education with development of their talents.
At the heart of InterHigh School is a community of students, staff and parents, created through a real sense of partnership. I have spent my career working in a wide variety of highly successful schools where this has been true too, but, none of them have been as innovative, as exciting or as life-changing as InterHigh.
I know that the choice of school is one of the most important decisions that a parent can make for their children. I hope that the above has provided you with an insight into what we do and what we are. More information is available on our website and I am always pleased to speak to parents and prospective parents about why we are so successful and so special.
I look forward to talking to you.
