Founded in September 2005, InterHigh School offers a complete secondary school education on the internet. Lessons are delivered by teachers and the pupils logging into virtual classrooms. It is based in Wales.

There are currently 250 pupils in the school between the ages of 10 to 19, about equal numbers of boys and girls.

Classes are kept to a maximum of 18 pupils. There are a total of 7 year groups, currently across 15 "classrooms".

The staff are made up of the following:

  • The Principal
  • 17 subject teachers.
  • 3 Administrative and Pastoral Leaders

It appears to be the only virtual school in the United Kingdom with features similar to the virtual high schools in US, Canada and Sweden.

The InterHigh Story

InterHigh have made available to VISCED the previously unpublished 2010 evaluation of InterHigh. This is based on in-depth interviews with InterHigh senior staff and with parents, teachers and pupils. It also incorporates views of two independent organisations (one public and one private sector) now associated with InterHigh. Read about it in The InterHigh Story.
