Nisai Virtual Academy

We believe everyone has the right to education, so we take a high-quality school environment and deliver it via the internet. Nisai is the only online provider in the UK to have a full Ofsted inspection, achieving a grading of ‘Good’. We provide live online classes taught by qualified subject-specific teachers across the country for students studying Key Stage 3, 4 or 5. Our goal is to ensure that every student can complete their education and gain accredited academic and vocational qualifications such as Functional Skills, GCSEs and A Levels.

Through the Nisai Virtual Academy or ‘NVA’, we provide an inclusive, highly social and student-focused experience for all learners but particularly those who struggle with emotional, physical or learning-related barriers.

Through our own online system, called the Nisai Virtual Academy, we provide learners from all kinds of backgrounds a bespoke education that’s delivered in an inclusive, social and student-focused environment. Our classes are smaller than those in schools, are interactive and taught by qualified teachers.

In addition to core subjects delivered to Key Stage 3 learners, we also provide recognised qualifications such as Functional Skills, GCSEs and A Levels and we also deliver vocational and non-academic courses like apprenticeships and traineeships. And for all our courses, our sophisticated tracking system records attendance, behaviour, contribution in lessons, progress made and distance travelled.
