What is right for my child


Online School vs. In-Person School in France: What’s Right for My Child?

As online schooling popularises across France, many parents are considering making the switch for their children. Before you jump on the bandwagon, make sure you carefully understand the differences between online school and in-person school.

We strongly encourage parents to get a good grasp on what each form of learning entails so they can determine whether their child will respond well to it. In this blog, we’ll offer a closer look at these differences to help you understand which option is best for your child. Continue reading.


If you’re looking for a schooling system that grants greater flexibility to students, online schooling should be your top pick. Compared to in-person school, online school allows students to enjoy a healthier school-life balance.

Why? Well, in-person schooling often drains students, leaving them feeling overwhelmed, fatigued, and exhausted. After shuffling in and out of classes all day, they return home with little to no energy left to enjoy new hobbies, interests, explorations, excursions, and activities with the same vigour.

The online schooling system grants students more time. The classes are shorter since they’re more focused. Each group comprises 8–10 students. As a result, students can engage with their teacher and peers more intently and directly, which increases their knowledge absorption and retention capacity. Once they’re done with classes for the day, they can enjoy a wide range of non-academic pursuits.

Academic Growth

In most conventional schools, the student-teacher ratio is extremely high. As 20+ students are taught by one teacher, they struggle to stay on track. They may zone out, lose the gist of the lesson, or fail to get adequate answers to their questions. The teachers have so much going on that they simply cannot provide individualised attention to every student.

Online schooling eliminates this risk. Each student is taught by experienced MA/PhD qualified subject specialist teachers in small groups, as highlighted above. At Cambridge Home School, we also use a well-rounded, interdisciplinary, and independent curriculum to help students perform exceptionally well in class and on their exams. As a result, students actualise impressive academic growth.

Personal and social developement

Every parent wants their child to secure top grades. However, this shouldn’t be your sole focus. You should also encourage your child to play their favourite sports, socialise with their friends, and work on their personal growth. Online schooling gives students ample opportunities to grow in an academic and non-academic capacity.

In conventional schools, there’s a high risk of school bullying. As a result, students feel discouraged, demotivated, and insecure. They may become withdrawn and feel unsure about taking on new challenges and getting out of their comfort zone.

In online schools, each class is assiduously moderated by empathetic, qualified, and experienced teachers. They promote personal and social development in students by arranging skill-building games and activities. Moreover, they encourage students to accept, respect, and appreciate each other so there’s no risk of bullying, which can easily clip children’s wings.
