Our Approach

"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.”
– John Dewey

Our Approach

Our school focuses on providing an exceptional online education, offering the UK National Curriculum for England, for students from age 5 - 14. We are the only UK based online school which offers full time online learning for students from as young as Year 1 - Year 9.

We are the first online school to partner with Fieldwork Education to offer both the International Primary and Middle Years Curriculums. Our interactive online lessons are delivered in real-time, in small groups of no more than 6 students, for the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.

Our partnership with Google enables us to utilise the leading Google for Education Suite of tools including Google Classroom, JamBoard, Google Meet for Education and many more. These tools transform how our educators and students learn, work and innovate at Sophia High School.
