Here are five reasons Pearson’s online private school is the right choice!


One of the biggest benefits of online schooling is the ability to personalise each students’ learning, but what does that actually mean? And how can it be achieved online? 

To personalise is to design or produce something to meet individual’s requirements, and at Pearson Online Academy UK Global, we do just that. Our Personalised Performance Learning approach gives EVERY student the best chance to flourish by ensuring they receive the one-on-one, tailored attention they deserve.

Personalising a student’s learning isn’t a one-time process — it’s ongoing — students, Success Coaches, parents, and teachers work together to set, review and adjust goals for the student and determine a timeline for accomplishing these individualised learning goals during the school years. And, through regular communication schedules and adjustments to learning plans and timetables as well as electives, teachers, Success Coaches and students are able to collectively ensure individual needs are met.

With personalised learning and individual attention, Pearson Online Academy UK Global’s approach to education is ideal for many children. Students who have done well in traditional schools usually adapt well to online learning with Pearson Online Academy UK Global. Children who have struggled previously can receive the additional academic support they need to succeed, including instruction tailored to strengthen their skills in areas of weakness and the ability to take more time on challenging work. For online students who are advanced, Pearson Online Academy UK Global offers opportunities to deepen and accelerate their studies.

Underpinning our Personalised Performance Learning approach is over 20 years of experience supporting online schools to engage and flourish, including Pearson Online Academy US, Connections Academy and Harrow School Online.


We have specifically created our educational programmes for online learning to ensure that every student is fully engaged in their learning and that our teachers are equipped to bring out the very best in them. Within the structure of a complete school programme, students use the Pearson Online Academy UK Global platform to study from home, joining  ‘LiveLesson’ sessions to deepen their understanding with expert teachers and their fellow students across the world.

This ‘flipped classroom’ has been proven to increase student engagement and encourage critical thinking, whilst working alongside peers from other countries helps them broaden their understanding of different cultures and build an international network of friends. ​
