“Homeschooling with you gave my children their childhood back.”


"Three hours with a tutor is like a week in school - I learnt so much, so quickly."


“96% of our pupils improve overall exam performance after time spent with our tutors.”


“Homeschooling has made my child calmer, more engaged, and happier. I cannot thank you enough.”


“I don't know what kind of magic you do, but it worked! Thank you!”


“Not only are we delighted with our son's results, but we are hugely impressed with how much he has grown, how much he has learned about himself.”


“From start to finish, everyone has been outstanding and we are extremely grateful for your expertise and really positive approach.”


After a decade of leading in private tuition, running an independent British boarding school, and advising families on educational pathways, we decided it was time to use our education expertise to reinvent online schooling. Our mission is to remove the barriers to entry for high-quality personalised education. There’s an ever-growing gap between what’s taught in traditional classrooms and the skills that are relevant in the real world. We founded The Online School to bridge that gap by nurturing confident and creative problem-solvers for tomorrow’s challenges. It all starts with fostering every learner’s curiosity.

Global Families

As the world becomes more interconnected many families are looking to enjoy the benefits of a nomadic lifestyle, but education has often been a point of difficulty for this way of life. The Online School allows you to take your schooling with you and even gives students the opportunity to meet new students and learn about new cultures either online or via our in-person learning centres (available in select locations).


Students may have fallen behind traditional school curriculum for a variety of reasons, whether it is poor health, specific learning difficulties, or just that they need a more personalised approach. The Online School is an entirely self-paced environment that offers unmatched flexibility and personalisation in every student’s curriculum.

Athletes & Artists

We work with a number of high end athletes, young actors, and other artists to ensure that they are attaining the highest levels of academic success alongside their early career achievements.


It’s no secret that the education system has remained largely unchanged for centuries, and families are now looking for exciting alternatives to traditional systems that nurture a child’s innate curiosity and desire to learn in order to prepare students for the world of tomorrow. The Online School’s innovative SIMPL Education system does just that, and builds the necessary skills to succeed in an ever evolving world.

Curriculum Transition

Changing school is a difficult period in any child’s life, add to that the requirement to slot into a new curriculum and it can be extremely challenging. The Online School has successfully worked with students transitioning from a variety of different curriculums to give them the best start in their new British school.

Intellectual Curiosity

It can be challenging for a classroom setting to cater to every student’s specific needs and pace, and this can result in some students feeling like they want more from their education. The Online School’s proprietary SIMPL Education system ensures that no student is held back and gives them the freedom to explore what interests them well beyond the scope of the curriculum.
