The advantages of studying at our online sixth form college

Many students find the step up from GCSE to AS and A Levels more challenging than from Year 13 to university. InterHigh’s online sixth form college, gives students taking online A Levels, a wide range of advantages over more traditional styles of sixth forms, as well as helping to make these difficult transitions smoother.

Smaller classes, less distraction and more free time

InterHigh’s AS and online A Level class sizes are limited to a maximum of 15 students. The class sizes ensure the flexibility for personalised learning is greater. Teachers can also amend lessons or incorporate additional topics if the few students in that subject are ahead of where they need to be at any given time. Due to our online status, staff are able to teach students for the entire lesson length without the usual distractions usually encountered at bricks and mortar schools and colleges. We also find that no time is wasted on behavioural issues at InterHigh Sixth Form College, which is crucial in year 12 and 13.

Typically, students studying three online A Levels are only committed to 10 hours of live timetabled classes each week, which can be accessed anywhere where there is an internet connection. This gives students flexibility to plan other activities, self-study and fit jobs in around their timetable.

A wealth of online resources and a chance to make new friends

At InterHigh, all our interactive lessons are recorded and archived. This archive is accessible 24/7. As well as being a great resource for revision, project work and preparation for lessons and exams, it also means that if you’re unable to decipher your notes, you can simply go back through the old lesson for clarity.

As well as our online school library, we also have a whole host of clubs and societies students can join and our very own common room. We also host common room guest talks every Friday afternoon. Army officers, doctors, nurses and scientists have given talks about their careers in the past and the weekly slot can also sometimes be about topical issues and other areas of general interest. We actively encourage social engagement both inside and outside the classroom and hold regular school trips throughout the year as well as a Summer Ball.

Help with university applications and careers advice

The university application process can be daunting for students. Every year, InterHigh learners are helped by our dedicated team in applying for university places. Our staff help students write their personal statements and everything else they need to submit a strong UCAS and Oxbridge application. We find that universities like our students because they can provide evidence of ‘self-directed study’. The team is also on hand to help you with your career choices and look at various career paths you could take.

A wide choice of online AS and A Level subjects

Because we are an online Sixth Form College without walls, it means that students can learn wherever there is an internet connection. We therefore find InterHigh is popular with actors, sporting prodigies and travelling students. Also, if the school or college you attend only offers some of the subjects you want to study at AS and A Level, then InterHigh’s Sixth Form College could offer you the perfect solution. You can combine studying one or more subjects at InterHigh alongside your existing studies.

Setting students up to succeed

We want to give our students the best chance to succeed in their AS and A Levels so at various points of the year, we hold intensive revision weekends in various subjects, including support courses for help with UCAS and Oxbridge applications. We know how stressful the application process can be, that’s why at InterHigh we have dedicated members of staff available during the school week to answer any questions a student may have in relation to their university application.
