The Brave New World of Online School Programmes

Alright, picture this – you’re cosied up with a cuppa at home, it’s a typical drizzly Tuesday, and you’ve traded the rush to catch the school bus for a leisurely stroll through online lessons. Wild, right? But this is the reality we’re offering with our fantastic online school programs.

Now, we’re not talking dull, dusty textbooks transplanted to a screen. Nah, we’re all about crafting an education that’s engaging, innovative, and packed with interactivity. And the best bit? We’re sticking to the good old National Curriculum of England, so no worries about missing out on key stuff.



What does this mean for your little ‘uns? Well, say goodbye to one-size-fits-all learning and hello to a bespoke, flexible curriculum. That’s the beauty of it – they can delve into the subjects that tickle their fancy at a pace that suits them. Plus, they’re still set up to smash the same exams as their mates in traditional school.

“But what about their friends?” we hear you ask. We’ve got that covered too. Our programmes are bursting with chances for your kids to interact and work together. They can chat over video, team up on projects, and even join online clubs. So, there’s plenty of opportunity for a natter and a giggle along the way.

And we get it; the whole tech thing can be a bit of a minefield. But don’t sweat it; all you need is a sturdy internet connection and a device – no flashy gadgets required. And if you do hit a bump in the digital road, our tech wizards are on hand to get you back on track.

The Nitty-Gritty of Secondary School Applications – Let’s Break it Down.

Alright, folks, let’s talk secondary school applications. We all know it can be a bit of a roller coaster, full of forms, big decisions, and more than a few cups of stress-brewed tea. But it doesn’t have to be a headache.

First off, you need to suss out your options. Think about what lights a fire in your little learner’s eyes, what subjects they’re smashing, and how far you’re willing to schlep every morning. Pop along to some open days, have a nose at the facilities, and check out the GCSE results.

What do we offer at our school? Well, we’re all about creating a place where students feel safe and supported. We set the bar high academically, but we also know that it’s not all about the grades. We champion well-rounded development, and our curriculum is as varied as a bag of pick’ n’ mix, so there’s something to satisfy every curiosity.

Once you’ve got your shortlist, it’s time to tackle those forms. Yes, they’re a bit fiddly, but starting early gives you plenty of time to gather all the bits and bobs you need and finesse your application. And if you hit a snag, our door is always open for a chat.

Remember, this is an exciting time! It’s the start of a whole new chapter in your child’s education, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that journey. So, grab a biscuit, put the kettle on, and let’s make secondary school applications a doddle.

The Thomas Keith Independent School Revolution: Online Learning that Feels Like the Real Deal



Alright, folks, let’s sit down for a chinwag about online schooling, shall we? Now, when you hear ‘online school’, what pops into your head?

And we’re passionate about making sure this magic happens for our students every day, in every class.

But what does a day at Thomas Keith Independent School look like? Well, imagine a history lesson where students can explore archival footage right from their living rooms. Or a science class conducting real-time experiments with household objects. It’s all in a day’s work for us.

And we’re not just teaching for teaching’s sake. We’re dedicated to the English National Curriculum, ensuring our students are right on track with their peers in traditional schools. So, you can rest easy knowing your kids are getting a top-notch education.

What is an online school?

Like conventional schools, students attend their classes live, but with a crucial distinction: all lessons take place online. There’s no need for them to commute to a physical school building. Instead, they access their lessons by logging into the Thomas Keith Independent School’s web portal a few minutes before the scheduled start time of their classes.

Teaching occurs in real-time in a digital classroom that comes equipped with a whiteboard, live video and audio streams from the teacher, and a chat box. During the course of the lesson, pupils can freely interact with their teacher and peers via the chat box or their microphone, as needed. They can even be given access to write and draw on the whiteboard. They submit assignments and receive feedback on them through the student portal, with the entire process being online.

Through an amalgamation of voice, text, whiteboard annotations, notes, recordings, presentations, and screen sharing, classes are made more engaging and interactive than in traditional school settings. Students can be assigned to complete specific exercises, share their work, or present to the class. Every pupil also has the opportunity for direct and private communication with their teacher, ensuring that nobody feels overlooked or left behind.
