A good education, wherever your location

A recent report released by The Future Leaders Trust, a charity that strives to ensure that opportunities in school are fair, has said that many coastal schools in England “face unique challenges” which are resulting in the underachieving of children across large parts of the British coastline.

Educational correspondent for the BBC, Sean Coughlan, has asked the question “is geography the new poverty?” after figures revealed that a place where a child lives could be a “defining feature” when a child underperforms.

The problem?

It seems there is a struggle to “get enough good teachers” to coastal schools and The Trust’s report argues that ‘exceptional head teachers’ need to be recruited and deployed to seaside towns. In Coughlan’s BBC report, he touched on the fact that coastal towns can’t compete with inner-city schools because of lack of attraction and good transport links.

The answer?

We can’t tell you the answer; all we know is that no matter where you are, at InterHigh you’re guaranteed an exceptional standard of learning wherever you are on the globe and that transport links definitely aren’t a problem.

Our team of fully qualified teachers and expert staff, who are recruited from across the UK, are proud to deliver a flexible and unique education to all.
