Education is important, in fact it’s critical so that every child should be literate. Because what if the cure for cancer was trapped in the mind of someone who can’t afford an education?

Answers to some questions

That You May Have

Q: What background do you have to run an online school?

We have a breadth of experience doing recruitment for schools as well as hosting effective outreach sessions with young people so we know exactly what it takes to be a teacher that students are receptive towards.

We have also been offering online lessons for over 5 years through our tuition centres which have given us enough data and room to trial new methods to better understand what actually works. Coupled with the international exposure we have we are able to better understand what approaches work well for children from all walks of life.

How Do You Keep The Online School Free?

Although we are set up as a business a significant portion of our time and efforts go towards funding The Online School. We use resources from our revenue generating ventures such as The Academy and the private 1:1 tuition. 

We have set up our operation in this way to help us secure the longevity and sustainability of always being able to offer free, live, quality schooling for children worldwide.  

Are You Registered With OFSTED?

As yet there is no official accreditation for online schooling but our team are working towards the standard OFSTED accreditation whilst preempting and adapting certain requirements to ensure they are suitable and effective for The Online School.

We have teachers on board who have more than 15 years of experience and have helped multiple schools achieve successful OFSTED ratings. So you are in safe hands!

The origin of

The Online School?

The Online School was founded by 3Lance Education, who, historically provided specialist recruitment services for the education and care industries i.e schools. They also hosted live tuition for both online and in person as well as coordinating outreach with young people to help them create a better future for themselves.

The Online School started as a solution to help students in the UK to continue their education whilst in lockdown (due to COVID-19). But after understanding all students needed was access to an internet connection and laptop then surely we can help to educate a lot more children than those just in the UK?

So we decided to reach out and establish ambassadors around the world who work with us to help us realise the dream of being able to provide free, live, quality education for children globally.
