“The results show what is possible by doing things differently”
“We are delighted to announce another year of wonderful A-Level results and academic achievement for sixth-grade students at King’s InterHigh,” the school said. “Our Class of 2022 has shown that flexible, high-quality online learning can lead to great exam results, a pathway to higher education, and a pathway to future dreams and aspirations.”Thirty percent of A-levels were at grades A*-A and 70% A*-C. “These are results the school community can be very proud of,” said Ashley Harrold, Chief Executive Officer. “Students have once again demonstrated their excellence and hard work, and now have a brilliant set of notes to use as they begin the next stage of their education.“It was a wonderful results day for King’s InterHigh, and the results achieved by our students in the Class of 2022 will certainly give confidence to our younger age groups as they approach their own exams. I would like to thank the teachers and staff of our online school who have educated and supported this cohort to such a superb level.“Our young people constantly demonstrate that it is possible to have a different approach to education, to benefit from more personalized learning and still be successful. As an online school, we focus on the progress students make after joining us. Student effort, effective instruction, and home support mean anyone can succeed, and we believe it’s never too late to catch up in the right learning environment.
“Online learning on par with physical schools”
The first cohort to take A-level exams at Harrow School Online is also celebrating: 98% achieved A* to B grades, and nearly half (45%) were A* grades. Just under 70% of students got an A* in at least one of their subjects, while a third got A*s in every subject they chose. The pioneering mixed student body, made up of learners from the UK, Australia, Sri Lanka, Spain, India, Romania and more, studied exclusively online throughout their sixth form schooling .Heather Rhodes, Founding Director of Harrow School Online, said: “I am immensely proud of our promotion this year. These talented learners have demonstrated great levels of intelligence, confidence, resilience and ambition throughout their time at the school. Their results are proof that at its best, online learning can achieve results that match or exceed those of a physical school.“Online learning has been seen by many as a second-best option, but we have seen our students exceed all expectations. Our results show that when ambitious students enjoy greater independence and flexibility in how they learning, they get the best of their potential.”
Global school communities
“Since the school’s inception, at a time of unprecedented change and global uncertainty, our online Harrovians and teaching staff have forged a school community like no other: proving time and time again that location should not not be an obstacle to learning; and that the power of online education has an abundance of opportunities to offer in terms of adapting to the lives of students, regardless of race, culture and location.“The domain of Harrow School Online is one of independence, entrepreneurship and, above all, human connection. Through our supportive international community of learners, challenging electives, and empowering student-led societies, and more, our learners are stepping forward to shape the communities and workforce of tomorrow . The self-directed learning skills they have developed during their time with us prepare them for success in college and in their careers, and I am confident that our students leave us with the skills and knowledge they need to embrace adult life.
