Why Sophia High School?

48 years of teaching experience

Sophia High School’s online provision provides considerable advantages over more traditional English Schools in the Middle East and stands apart from our online competitors.  

As passionate educators with over 48 years of teaching and leadership experience in outstanding schools around the world, our core driver is to ensure that every student is provided with a high quality learning experience and achieves their full potential.  

Qualified, UK based teachers

Our fully qualified, UK based teachers have been handpicked by our team from some of the best schools in the UK and have undergone rigorous safeguarding and safer recruitment checks.   

Our teachers deliver daily, live online lessons to our students in a maximum group size of 6 students per teaching pod for the core subjects.   This ensures that every child gets the individual focus and attention they need in lessons and also avoids any behavioural issues which can arise in both traditional class settings and online school settings where there is a high teacher to student ratio. 

Guided coursework linked to the live lessons

We also provide guided coursework linked to the live lessons which follow the UK National Curriculum objectives.  Coursework, learning resources and support material is available 24/7 via our digital learning environment powered by Google Classroom.   

Weekly 1-1 parent meetings

Parents have the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher during our weekly 1-1 meetings to discuss the learning, progress and achievement and we have a clear and transparent assessment and reporting policy so that parents fully understand their child’s learning journey at all times and we work alongside parents to provide guidance on how best to support learning at home.  Our live lessons are recorded and posted weekly to enable students to return to the learning at any time as an additional learning resource tool.  

We strive to create a global learning community, where students are encouraged to connect with their peers both through lesson interactions, weekly whole school celebration assemblies or in taking leadership roles in leading live lessons and sharing their passions and interests with their peers.   We also offer a wide variety of individual pursuits through our extensive extra curricular programme called SophiaX.
