Why online education works for expats

As a parent, choosing the right school for your child can sometimes be a tricky process.

When you relocate abroad, the complexities of an unfamiliar educational system, together with factors such as the length of your assignment and where you may be heading next, can make this choice even more challenging. Notably, if your child is transitioning between curriculum levels, selecting the right school place for them becomes even more crucial; this is especially true if they are making the move from GCSE to A Level study, due to the impact these key years can have on their future university choices and career goals.

If you are unsure whether the brick-and-mortar schools available locally are right for your child – in terms of the way they learn best or their aspirations for the future – then online schooling could be the ideal choice for you and your family.

Harrow School Online offers distinctive British education to children around the world

To support expat families looking for high-quality schooling for their children, we’ve launched Harrow School Online, an innovative co-educational online school built on the richness and heritage of Harrow School, a renowned boarding school in England, and providing distinctive British education to girls and boys around the world. The school operates on the British academic year, and admissions are now open for September 2020.

Combining rigorous full-time academic studies and co-curricular activities with the flexibility of a modern ‘anytime, anywhere’ learning method, Harrow School Online provides bright and ambitious children from 16 years of age with access to an education like no other, helping to pave their way to university and career success with:

A rich Sixth-Form programme of study built on academic excellence

Built on the academic excellence of Harrow School, Harrow School Online offers accredited Edexcel International A Level courses in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Economics – fully recognised by Russell Group and Ivy League universities. Beyond A Level study, pupils are also exposed to a rich programme of exciting extra-curricular activities – such as game design, robotics, various online clubs and more – designed to promote intellectual curiosity, foster leadership and personal fulfilment.

Successful progression to university and beyond

From their first day at Harrow School Online, each pupil is guided in their university explorations by a Success Coach, a professional mentor whose role is to help pupils develop their academic, personal and social skills and prepare them for university life and career success.

A personalised, flexible and real-school programme with live, online teachers

At Harrow School Online, pupils experience all of the flexibility of self-paced learning within the structure of a complete school programme supported by expert teachers and tutors. Live online lessons are designed to fit around each pupil’s interests and lifestyle, and to ensure their individual success.
Additionally, the Harrow School Online’s technology platform keeps parents updated in real time about their children’s education and progress, providing them with the tools they need to support and motivate.

Opportunities to cultivate long-lasting friendships online

We understand academic performance are strongly dependent on student engagement, and this is why we’ve organised Harrow School Online into Virtual Houses. Inspired by the boarding Houses at Harrow School, they connect pupils and staff beyond academic study, fostering a sense of loyalty and belonging, and giving pupils the opportunity to cultivate meaningful and long-lasting friendships online.

We know expat families are often on the move. Whether you’ll soon be heading to another country, or are staying put for the time being, a global online school like Harrow School Online not only gives you and your child the freedom to control learning, but can also move with you, allowing continuity and excellence wherever your family goes. That’s one of the reasons why high-quality online schools are increasingly popular with expat families around the world.

  1. That sounds interesting! I’ve changed schools so many times because of the moves that my school experience is terrible.
    It seems to me like a good option to avoid constant school transfers. In addition, the practice has shown that online education works well (not without disadvantages, but better than when changing locations).
