Smaller Class Sizes. Personal Learning.
A 2015 OECD study “How Much Time Do Teachers Spend on Teaching and Non-teaching Activities?” found that on average across countries, teachers in traditional schools spend half of their working time in non-teaching activities. Moreover, keeping order in the classroom occupies an average of 13% of all teachers’ time across countries.
The absence of distractions or disruptions in an online school such as Lady Evelyn Independent School enables teachers to devote themselves entirely to teaching and learning. As a result, students spend less time in class and more time focussed.
Our aim is to couple academic excellence with morals and values of the highest standards.
Classes are taught live, online, by expert teachers who have passion for their subjects and are dedicated to helping every student succeed and get the top grades to be able to compete with the academically brightest students from around the globe.
Students can interact via the chat box and microphone. Teachers monitor student interaction and respond to questions to the whole class or privately to individual queries.

What happens if a student cannot attend a live class?
If a student is unable to attend a live class, his or her parent/guardian must inform the school via Parent Portal for it to be marked as an Authorised Absence. If this is not done, it will be marked as an Unauthorised Absence and will be recorded in the student’s file. In both cases, students are expected to watch the recording of the live class and submit the relevant homework on time.
