On-line school in UK

Hi everyone,

Not sure how many of you are familiar with the online schooling in the UK called 'inter high'?
This might be expensive? But certainly looks,like an option for any of you who just cannot get your son/daughter to school at all.
Sometimes we just have to accept that the school environment is not ok for many kids.

I have been told by our education department online, here, that my son is enrolling in, that they have gone from 2500 students enrolled last year to 4000 this year, and most of those have mental/emotional health issues. Despite being lucky to have this which does not cost much at all, I am really concerned as to why so many of our young people are suffering in this way.
I,d be interested to hear if anyone had experience with on line schooling.
