Pioneering Quality Standards for Online Education
At Sophia High, we are leading the charge in bringing rigorous accreditation frameworks to online learning. As a recognised leader, we aim to set the bar for excellence, accountability, and confidence for remote instruction.
We are delighted to share that we were visited by His Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI) on 20th and 21st September 2023 to complete our Online Education Accreditation Scheme Evaluation and we look forward to sharing details of the outcome in due course.
Partners in Quality Education
Sophia High has passed the strict eligibility criteria for online schools in England wishing to be part of the Online Education Provider Accreditation Scheme that was launched in March 2023. We now await our Evaluation visit by Ofsted who are the Quality Assurance provider for the scheme. Sophia High School was one of four online schools selected by the Department for Education to pilot the new Online Education Accreditation Scheme in 2021. Our upcoming inspection will evaluate programme delivery, resources, safeguarding, outcomes and more. Earning this new accreditation will further confirm our commitment to accessible, transformational remote learning for today's needs.
Sophia High has been granted full membership by the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS), following a thorough evaluation process. This global recognition is a tremendous validation of our exemplary academics, faculty, technology, and student support. Out of thousands of schools worldwide, we join an exclusive group of just four accredited online schools representing both the UK and US Curriculum.
We have partnered with GL Assessments, the UK's leader in standardized testing, to integrate leading assessments into our programmes. GL's progress tests and benchmarking provide robust, externally-validated data on student learning gains across critical subject areas. Parents gain visibility into actionable academic progress. Teachers benefit from data-driven insights to personalise instruction. And students receive feedback motivating growth. Our partnership with the gold-standard assessment authority demonstrates commitment to understanding impact.
