Online school King’s InterHigh launches Southeast Asia timetable for international students
Students across the Asia Pacific region can now get a world class British education fully online, in a time zone more suited to them, with King’s InterHigh’s new Southeast Asia timetable — enrolling now for September 2023.
Founded in 2005, King’s InterHigh is the UK’s leading online school. Open to families anywhere in the world, King’s InterHigh provides a high-quality, flexible, and personalised British and international education entirely online. Students can already choose from two other timetable options (UK and Middle East), with the Southeast Asia timetable launching this new academic year.
Taught on the GMT+7 time zone, King’s InterHigh’s new timetable opens the field for students across Asia, Australia, and beyond to access top British schooling on a time zone that works better for them.
Meeting an international need
King’s InterHigh is proud to be home to an online school community spanning over 4,500 students worldwide, including numerous learners in countries such as Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore.
Demand for high-quality British education is high across the whole Asia Pacific region among local and expat families alike. However, parents often find that international schooling options are limited — from long waiting lists to difficulty finding a school that meets their child’s lifestyle or learning needs.
That’s why King’s InterHigh is excited to launch this new timetable. With live, online classes from UK-qualified teachers (all delivered on the GMT+7 time zone), learners can now prepare for bright futures with a British education on a schedule that suits them.
About King’s InterHigh
Part of Inspired, the world’s leading global schools group, King’s InterHigh brings together 17 years of online education experience with over 50 years of academic excellence from King’s College schools.
At King’s InterHigh, learning revolves around you. Students can study from anywhere in the world with small, live, interactive classes, all recorded for flexibility. In each lesson, expert teachers bring learning to life with proven online teaching methods and innovative technologies. Outside the classroom, students can participate in extra-curricular activities, socialise with their classmates online, and join in-person events and programmes at over 80 Inspired schools worldwide.
Since 2005, more than 10,000 successful alumni have graduated from King’s InterHigh, and the school maintains a strong track record of success. Every year, numerous students earn top grades and places at esteemed UK universities such as Cambridge and Oxford as well as top universities around the world.
Offering IGCSEs and A Levels online, King’s InterHigh’s new Southeast Asia timetable brings the world-respected British curriculum to students aged 14 to 19.
From age 14 to 16, students typically study eight or more International GCSEs (including mathematics, English, and science). IGCSEs teach important knowledge on a broad range of subjects, while A Levels are more specialised and in-depth. From age 16, students spend a further two years studying three or more A Levels in the subjects they’re most passionate about, preparing them for degree studies.
Both IGCSEs and A Levels are internationally recognised and highly regarded across the globe, providing a strong route to the world’s best universities and future careers.
Online schooling is a game-changer for students seeking to follow this route in a more flexible, personalised way without compromising on education quality. King’s InterHigh offers a range of 10 IGCSE subjects and 11 A Level subjects to choose from, giving learners the freedom to follow their unique passions with the best possible teaching.
Innovative, expert UK teaching
As the UK’s leading online school, King’s InterHigh is known for a high standard of education, and the new Southeast Asia timetable promises to be no exception. Each class is taught by expert teachers, and every teacher is highly qualified in the UK — an advantage over many traditional international schools.
Combining their subject expertise, British curriculum experience, and training in online learning, King’s InterHigh’s teachers are uniquely able to guide students to achieve their best.
This guidance also goes beyond academics. The school’s staff are dedicated to creating a warm, welcoming environment with support every step of the way, from wellbeing sessions to exam stress workshops — plus assistance with UK and international university applications.
In addition, learning online brings students a much-needed edge in today’s traditional age. At King’s InterHigh, students learn, interact, and collaborate in state-of-the-art virtual classrooms, using cutting-edge learning technologies like simulations and extended reality. For students across Asia and Oceania looking towards global futures, this innovation is invaluable.
Flexibility for all students
As many parents know, a traditional environment isn’t always the best fit for every child. With King’s InterHigh’s new timetable, more families around the world have an option for quality British learning that revolves around their needs and lifestyle.
While the school’s online classes are taught live for the best learning experience, students also have 24/7 access to video recordings of every lesson. This offers unprecedented flexibility, empowering learners to study at their own pace or fit education around their passions. King’s InterHigh student Anna Hursey, for example, is balancing her A Levels with table tennis training and competitions around the world. House of the Dragon actress Maddie Evans, meanwhile, can follow her film and television dreams without compromising on her learning.
Anna and Maddie are just two of many King’s InterHigh students who blend online learning with careers in sports, acting, arts, entrepreneurship. Others use their flexibility to spend more time on hobbies or keep up with education in spite of health issues.
With online learning on an additional time zone, new and current King’s InterHigh students alike can strike that healthy balance between life and learning.
Joining King’s InterHigh
For Japan-based student Anna, King’s InterHigh offers an opportunity to “apply to more universities around the world with the qualifications I earn, as the UK curriculum is a global curriculum.” For others, like parent Juli based in Singapore, online learning is about striking a balance between life and learning. “When we’re travelling,” says Juli, “we don’t have to worry about activities outside of school clashing with our son’s timetable.
With a GMT+7 timetable and a commitment to educational excellence at every step, King’s InterHigh aims to bring more families around the world a high-quality education that fits them.
