Information for parents
Your child will experience a uniquely accessible school with everything at their fingertips
At InterHigh we understand that choosing the right school for your son or daughter is one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make. The InterHigh School calendar follows traditional UK independent school terms. Each year is a 35 week academic year.
Our school addresses the academic, pastoral and social needs of each pupil individually.
Our Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 curriculum are 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. Once lessons are over, pupils can enjoy a range of clubs, societies, seminars or catch up with friends in the common room sessions.
InterHigh’s state of the art online learning platform and engaging learning resources enables pupils to make great progress in their studies. We give our pupils control over their learning and they enjoy their interactions around the school; a personal, engaging teaching experience where they can directly and discretely question their teachers during and after classes to ensure they have a solid understanding of the subject.
We make it easy for parents to be involved and follow their child’s progress. Parents are given their own access to the school portal which provides constant information about their son or daughter’s progress, feedback and assignments. This is supplemented by regular written feedback from all their teachers.
Above all, we offer our young people time. The effectiveness of our teaching means that pupils are ‘in school’ lessons only for only three or four hours a day giving them an unrivalled opportunity to pursue their own interests, hobbies, pastimes and goals.
We are able to support pupils who join the school during the course of an academic year; this is hugely assisted by our online course resources, modules and the discrete, personal interaction pupils can have with our teachers during lessons. If you would like further details about any aspect regarding how InterHigh works or how we provide an effective transition into our school, please get in contact with us and we can discuss your child’s needs.
It all adds up to make InterHigh as individual as our pupils.
