Principal's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Charterhouse Online. 

We offer a unique combination of traditional academic excellence, delivered online, using blended and accelerated learning techniques, backed up by the expertise and experience of a world class British school. Today’s world is better connected, more global in its outlook and yet changing and developing faster than ever before, and our delivery of online high-quality A Level education reflects this approach.

For the very able student, our accelerated, one-year A Level programme will be transformational. Completed in a single academic year, and as part of a close-knit cohort, our students will enjoy a full-time course of study that combines academic rigour leading to internationally recognised qualifications with the individual support that prepares students for entry into the world's top universities. The programme is challenging, but intellectually rewarding, allowing our students to open doors to the next stage of their educational journey with real confidence and predominately from the convenience of their own homes.

The foundation of our educational approach will be live, synchronous, lessons, taught online in small A Level classes. These lessons will be supplemented by live university Tutorials and subject clinics in smaller groups to provide additional personalised support.  Students will typically attend 15 live lessons per week, two university Tutorials plus a university preparation lesson and three subject clinics per week.

Students are expected to supplement their synchronous learning with approximately twenty-one hours of private study per week, using online materials that can be worked through at their own pace.

The final element of the accelerated A Level programme is the ability to join up with fellow students at the two onsite modules, delivered at Charterhouse’s UK campus. Students will be able to take advantage of the fantastic facilities on our campus and make big advances in practical work within science subjects, really get under the skin of the university applications process and refine their assessment technique in real examination conditions. These two residential periods will also be great opportunities to develop the Charterhouse values and build on international friendships and networks established online.

We look forward to meeting you online as well as welcoming you to the Charterhouse campus.

Ms Karen Davies, Principal
