There is no time like the present for online schooling. With the current coronavirus crisis impacting many aspects of our lives, from work to social care and schooling, it is important that children are still receiving their much-needed education.
iBOS is the world’s pioneering independent, international British online secondary school and sixth form college that teaches the full UK curriculum to Key Stage four and five students globally.
All lessons at iBOS are taught via live and interactive video link, where teachers and students can collaborate in real time.
Teachers have a large screen before them that enables them to see the students and can also switch cameras to see their work during the lesson.
Given the current climate, this is the kind of learning that will be the future of the educational system. Learning at iBOS means that, while conventional schools are closing, for iBOS it is still business as usual.
‘Teachers use tools such as interactive whiteboards and screen sharing to teach high quality lessons to all students at the school’
The classes are taught and streamed live from London to students all over the world. Teachers use tools such as interactive whiteboards and screen sharing to teach high quality lessons to all students at the school.
During lessons a group of analysts monitor the progress and attitude of students towards their learning and produce a detailed weekly report on all aspects of the students’ learning.
This means parents can keep a close eye on their child’s progress at school, anytime they wish to. It also means that should a parent have any concerns on any aspect of their child’s progress it can be quickly brought to the teacher’s attention.
Based in Hammersmith, iBOS recruits only the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable teachers to keep students inspired, and all students are welcome, no matter what their ability.
iBOS currently offers GCSE, iGCSEs and A Level courses for students aged 14-18, all of which are taught from the British curriculum.
Students are offered the same core subjects as a conventional school, with the same curriculum and receive the same qualifications – all from the comfort of their own home.
