Spring into a new way of learning!

As we reach the end of another successful term for Net School we are thrilled that student numbers continue to grow. We have also seen the launch of a brand new Beginners Spanish course and Creative Writing Club, as well as additional Geography classes to meet the demand amongst our Key Stage 3 students. We are also pleased to annouce that from September 2014 we will be offering IGCSE Single Award Sciences to complement our...

New Year, New Opportunities to Learn!

Happy New Year! We hope that this year brings you all you hope for. Here at Net School we are looking forward to the new term, which begins next week, and to welcoming students old and new to their classes. Our teachers are putting the finishing touches to this year's lesson plans, and are ready and raring to get started! For students joining us this term, in addition to the timetabled classes, we are offering...

Hola! Would you like to learn Spanish?

Spanish is a truly global language, spoken by around 423 million people across the world. Learning Spanish can therefore open doors to myriad opportunities for travel and employment, as well as helping you make the most of holidays to Spanish-speaking nations! If this sounds exciting, then now is your chance to open up these possibilities for your child. From January, Net School will be launching a new Spanish course aimed at students of school age...

Are you a survivor?

After a wonderful first five weeks of teaching, Net School students are now coming to the end of their half term break and are ready and raring to start on the second half of the autumn term. To add to the existing currriculum, we are from next week going to be offering two new 'after school' clubs for existing students - Cartoon Club (a chance to stretch those creative muscles) and Survival Skills (practical ways...

Net School Welcomes its 55th Student!

It's been a busy month for Net School. Since we went live on 16th September, we have delivered over 100 hours of interactive classes, launched our new state of the art learning management system and been featured in the Diplomatic Service's magazine, Carousel. We now have 55 students based across six countries. But we've kept the numbers per class low. On average, there are four students per class and never more than eight. Which means that every student...

Where are you going this summer?

As the summer approaches here in the UK (we are still living in hope!), many students’ thoughts turn to holidays, which might be spent in the countryside, the mountains or by the seaside.  Net School’s Key Stage 3 and IGCSE Geography courses encourage students to understand these environments by explaining river, coastal and urban environments, their individual management techniques and the challenges which face them all.  Students will also improve on their current affairs knowledge...

Maths for Life!

Maths is an essential part of everyday life. Counting change, managing time, memorizing phone numbers and locker combinations are all situations where basic numeracy and maths skills are used by the majority of people every day. Netschool's classroom policy of 8 students (maximum) per class means increased teacher/student interaction compared to a traditional classroom. We currently offer online classes for Primary, Key Stage 3 and IGCSE level and our students follow Edexcel's International GCSE course (Mathematics A).  Netschool is lucky enough to have two very enthusiastic...

Et Tu, Net School?

It's been great to see the strong interest in Net School's new online Latin classes this month - but not that surprising. It's a subject that has enjoyed a real resurgence in recent years. I think part of the reason for this is that parents and students are looking for an academically rigorous subject - something that challenges them and offers something a little bit different. However, i think it also reflects the growing appreciation...
