What is our Virtual School Experience?

Our virtual school has been designed to meet every student’s social, emotional, creative, physical and cultural needs.

Each virtual High School day brings every aspect of our curriculum to life and includes plenty of opportunities for students to engage with their teachers and classmates. Our virtual school holistically prepares our students for their IGCSE and IB exams, as well as the challenges that await after graduation, with bespoke guided study and dedicated support from world-class teachers. Our blended learning approach is built on a foundation of innovative, interactive lessons, as well as collaborative and focused study time.

What can you expect?

A team of dedicated specialist teachers strive to deliver personalised lessons designed to engage students and motivate them to learn along with their classmates, while at the same time fostering students’ independence and building their confidence. Our inclusive learning environment forges strong cooperative relationships between teachers and students to make moving between off-screen and online activities seamless.

  • Participation in a range of activities with Nord Anglia students from all over the world through our Global Campus

  • Exclusive learning experiences created by our partners The Juilliard School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

  • Over 70 Extra-Curricular Activities to enhance the core curriculum, and provide opportunities for students to broaden their interests and perspectives of the world.

How do we support our students?

1. Form Tutors

Every student is a member of a tutor group led by a Form Tutor. This dedicated member of staff supports each student’s learning and wellbeing by

  • Leading a tutor group session each morning where matters important to students academic and social development can be discussed

  • Holding regular check-in with individuals or small groups of students for more personalised pastoral care

  • Building social connections between tutor group members

Form Tutors also act as a point of contact for students and parents on any aspect of school life. They play a key role in monitoring and supporting students in their learning across all their subjects. Whenever parents want to know how their child is doing at school, the person they can most easily turn to is their child’s form tutor. 

This relationship between students, tutors and parents continues each year across the three Key Stages in High School. This means that the child moves up to the next year group, their form tutor moves up with them until that particular Key Stage is complete.

2. Individual Learning and Language Support

All students who benefit from EAL or Learning Support will have additional support from an individual specialist. This specialist can work alongside the student in the class, encouraging them to participate or contribute in mainstream lessons, or the learning support teacher can work with students in specialised 'pull-out' lessons that are more tailored to how they might best engage with a topic.

The goal of learning and language support is to imbue students with the knowledge, confidence and wherewithal to learn independently without support, so they are better prepared to fulfil their long-term educational aspirations.

3. Advice, Support and Counselling Team

Our dedicated team of counselling professionals continue to support each student at St Andrews through online, face-to-face sessions during virtual learning periods.

All new students receive support from our Student Support Team led by the Head of Year and School Counsellors to ensure learners feel comfortable, confident, and content about their transition to High School life at St Andrews.

4. Wellbeing Curriculum

In order to develop the skills and awareness to be responsible for their own wellbeing, our students have a full range of activities and resources designed to keep their minds and bodies healthy while participating in the virtual school environment.

Our Health and Wellbeing Coordinator, alongside our Counselling team, extends existing curriculum programs to enhance student health and wellbeing, resilience and the development of life skills face-to-face and when learning online.

5. Learning Technology Support

Learning at St Andrews operates in a dynamic, technology-based environment, which enables our students to intuitively shift easily between a multitude of approaches to learning. Our IT Support Team leads all new students through an Introduction to VSE training session to ensure that they are ready to engage in online lessons from day one. This Team provides ongoing support to all students and parents throughout the year and throughout their High School journey.
