Online Schooling in Scotland
In recent years, many Scottish parents have been moving to their children into the online learning paradigm. We’ve been observing this transition across Scotland, particularly in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Stirling, Dundee, Perth, Aberdeen, Elgin, and Livingston. As it continues to gain momentum, it’s gradually reaching other cities of Scotland.
At Cambridge Home School Online, we provide a quality British online education to students across Scotland. We offer four competitive homeschooling programs: Primary Prep/Key Stage 2 (ages 8–10), Lower School/Key Stage 3 (ages 11–13), Upper School/IGCSEs (ages 14–16), and Sixth Form/AS & A-Levels (ages 17–19).Read More
Our commitment to academic excellence helps our students achieve top grades. For years, our Scottish students have enjoyed outstanding academic success. 86% of our IGCSE students secured A*s and As in their target subjects in June 2021. 83% of our A Level students secured two As and a B or higher, as requested by top universities. Moreover, all students who applied received offers from some of the best universities globally.
Not only do our students perform exceptionally well in school, but they also achieve high levels of success in other aspects of their lives, e.g., sports. Let’s take a closer look at why CHS Online is the ideal choice for students in Scotland.
Excellent Academic Support
CHS Online has a team of MA/MSc/PhD qualified teachers on board. Our experienced, trained, and assiduous teachers deliver focused lessons in small groups of 8–10 pupils. We intentionally keep our teacher-student ratio particularly low. As an institution, we firmly believe that students perform better when they receive their teachers’ focused attention. This is only possible when each classroom consists of a small number of students and teachers can engage with each pupil on an individualised level.Read More
Most conventional schools in Scotland have a particularly high teacher-student ratio. As many as 25 students are taught in one classroom, which prevents teachers from keeping the class focused and keeping students engrossed in their lessons. There are simply too many pupils in class for teachers to maintain an engaging, interactive, stimulating, and retentive online learning environment.
By reversing this approach, we help our students learn and perform better. We also use a well-rounded, independent, and interdisciplinary online learning curriculum. While we’ve retained some facets of the standard national curriculum, we’ve introduced many new elements to cover greater academic breadth and depth.
Our students cover a wider curriculum, which helps them master their respective subjects. This allows our students to sit their exams with confidence, proficiency, and preparedness. They also utilise their strong time management skills.
While we prioritise academic success, we also focus on skill-building. Our teachers instil a range of soft and hard skills in students, including teamwork, responsibility, problem-solving, communication, critical thinking, and stress management, among others. We want our students to become well-rounded individuals who enjoy academic and non-academic success.
One-on-One Pastoral Support
At CHS Online, we believe that students face a wide range of obstacles today. If they don’t enjoy a healthy school-life balance, they may feel overburdened, overworked, and overwhelmed. This can affect their mental health and academic performance. We firmly believe that happy learners are better learners. If students aren’t content, motivated, and empowered, they cannot perform to their fullest potential.
We have a team of qualified school counsellors who provide personalised pastoral support andsuccess coaching to each student. They build trust to make sure that students feel comfortable opening up about any academic or non-academic struggles they may be facing.
Today, many students feel stressed and anxious for a range of reasons. Younger students may not receive enough time for personal growth and social development. This could affect their performance and increase the risk of tantrums. Older students face a range of complex obstacles that affect their stress and anxiety levels. They may face problems in their personal life (self-doubt, academic shortcomings, etc.) or social life (peer pressure, bullying, relationship problems, etc.).Read More
Addressing and resolving these problems is imperative. Students may struggle immensely if they’re taken lightly and swept under the rug. By acknowledging, understanding, and managing these problems, our school counsellors help students enjoy good mental health. They provide complete support and guidance to students at all times. Our Scottish students feel safe confiding in our counsellors. They also feel open and comfortable voicing their concerns. By providing a judgment-free safe space to students, we encourage them to stay on track.
Switching to Online Learning in Scotland
As online schooling gains more momentum across Scotland, many parents are making the transition for their children. If you’re in the middle of your research, take your time. This decision should be given the careful thought it deserves. Speak with your child so you can consider their opinion on the matter.
At Cambridge Home School Online, we’re committed to helping students succeed academically, personally, and socially. In addition to providing excellent teaching support to each student, we also equip them with additional online learning tools.Read More
Each student is provided access to a vast online library of educational resources. They can access online videos, presentations, study guides, past papers, activities, worksheets, and many more tools.
These come in handy when students are completing their homework or revising for the day. If they require prompt support, they can consult our resources and overcome any obstacles. We encourage students to take down any questions they may have and present them in class the next day.
At CHS Online, we use a range of similar strategies to help our students become happy, successful, well-rounded, and motivated high achievers.
