Known for its history, culture, art, talent, music, and traditions, Cape Town is one of the best places to live in South Africa. At Cambridge Home School Online, we proudly offer a quality Cambridge online education to students living in Cape Town.

Parents and students can choose from four competitive homeschooling programs: Primary Prep/Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 10), Lower School/Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 13), Upper School/IGCSEs (ages 14 to 16), and Sixth Form/AS & A-Levels (ages 17 to 19).

Before you make the switch from conventional to online learning, take some time to understand whether the transition is right for you. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of attending online classes in Cape Town. Keep reading!


1. Qualified Teaching Support

At CHS Online, we have a team of MA/MSc/PhD qualified subject specialist teachers on board. We strongly believe that students must be equipped with the right teaching support. If their teachers lack experience, expertise, the right training, and a broad skill set, students may struggle to perform well.

Our teachers deliver engaging, student-centric lessons to help each pupil absorb and retain the bulk of knowledge presented in the classroom. We keep the classroom size small to facilitate this. Our classes comprise between 8 and 10 students, no more.

This is a very different approach from most conventional schools today. In conventional classrooms, the student-teacher ratio is particularly high. In some cases, as many as 25, 30, or even 35 students are taught in a single classroom.

This prevents each student from receiving individualised attention from their teachers. Student engagement also goes down, which affects class performance. By keeping our student-teacher ratio low and selecting the most qualified teachers in England, we help our students succeed in Cape Town.

2. Flexibility

Online schooling is very flexible. Students aren’t required to commute to/from school every day, sit in a physical classroom, and shuffle in and out of classes all day long.

As an online student, you’ll receive lessons from home. Students are required to possess a computer/laptop, a strong, stable Wi-Fi connection, the required books and notebooks, and stationery. You may need additional items if your teachers plan any class activities. These will be communicated to your parents beforehand.

Compared to conventional schooling, online learning offers greater convenience to students. You’ll free up a lot of time that would otherwise be spent roaming around campus. Our students utilise this time to play sports, socialise with their friends, explore new hobbies and activities, go on explorations, and develop new skills.

3. Complete Support and Guidance

Online schooling stands out for its provision of coaching and support to students. At CHS Online, we provide one-on-one success coaching and pastoral support to every student. We understand that academic stress, anxiety, and burnout are common among students living in Cape Town. These issues must be carefully and promptly addressed by qualified student counsellors, not swept under the rug.

We provide complete guidance to students across academic, personal, and social realms. Our students enjoy good mental health, which helps them perform well in school. In June 2021, 86% of our IGCSE students secured A*s and As in their target subjects. 83% of our A Level students secured two As and a B or higher, as requested by top universities. Moreover, all students who applied received offers from some of the best universities across the globe.

Our track record reflects our focus on helping students succeed. As we transform Cape Town’s immense potential into excellent grades, we hope to add more success stories to the list.


4. Curricular Advantage

At Cambridge Home School Online, we believe that the national curriculum is too prescriptive. Our MA/MSc/PhD teachers use an independent curriculum to help students cover more ground and learn comprehensively, not superficially.

Our curriculum covers topics and subtopics that aren’t addressed in the national curriculum. By covering these gaps, we ensure that our students are fully equipped for their examinations. Exam performance is elevated.

As one of the most esteemed online international schools in South Africa, Cambridge Home School Online is trusted by thousands of parents and students in Cape Town. Whether you’re interested in primary school online learning, online classes for secondary education, IGCSE schools online, or A Level classes, CHS Online should be your top consideration.
