Article from women's section of Daily Mail from 2015 which mentions Interhigh, Net-school and Briteschool, as well as saying there are 5 such online schools. hTTp://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3255618/Would-let-child-taught-home-computer-pupils-having-school-lessons-internet-turn-lonely-misfits.html I guess size of Interhigh is the dominant factor for Wey?

At the meeting there was a question about competition. I think the gist of the answer was apart from the USA, there were not many examples of established online schools with the years of operation, experience and accreditations as Interhigh. Of course, now with the financial backing of Wey Education, additional initiatives such as Infinity, WeyEcademy and Quoralexis will beef up the offering and first mover advantage. I did come across this online school however which seems to be a smaller version of Interhigh but running only since 2013, called Net-School: hTTps://www.net-school.co.uk/ There seems to be no mention of enrolled pupil numbers in total but does boast of no more than 8 per class so perhaps that tells a story. Looks like the kind of operation that Wey could snap up in its quest for critical mass? What thoughts have you, Netcurtains?

Generic discussion here but publicity is publicity and it is on a relevant website: hTTps://www.fenews.co.uk/fevoices/14438-building-an-online-school "FE News is the Further Education, Skills and Work Based Learning online news magazine.

In summary of the investor evening: The Chairman was not just "Bullish" he was HYPER-SQUARED-BULLISH"... No "ifs" or "buts" or "maybes"

razoblade is right though. The internet allows companies - with the right reviews and image, to go from just a handful of "customers" to MILLIONS.... Just imagine, one day, it could easily be this September (or any month ) when "fashion" will dictate: "LETS TRY AN ON-LINE EDUCATION THIS TERM"... BAM - ONE MILLION PUPILS!!! That is how fast it can go. One minute you're Mrs May sitting with a massive MULTI-MILLION LEAD the next minute Mr Corbyn has taken the lot! That is how fast things can move. A rising tide lifts all boats... I would have preferred a blairite but once the flood gates are open everything is swept away. Wey Education can go from a penny share to a multi-pound share over night and it would still make perfect sense because there are millions of customers out there and currently we just have a couple of grand. Someone soon will turn the switch on.

Seabornlegend, select gathering max 20-25 I would say. There was at least one guy from one of the existing institutions there from what I heard.On the company side, the Daniels (husband and wife founders of Interhigh in 2005), the chairman David Massie, a couple of the head teachers responsible for the education side of things. What stood out was the experience, enthusiasm and quality on show.Between the Daniels and Mr Massie, I think the latter said they hold some 33% of the company. There are also a couple of big holdings by institutions. Miton was hailed as a top notch investor.

I was recently looking up some of the old star pupils of InterHigh from 2010 to see where they are now. This is one.... HTTPS://theboar.org/author/hattie-rowan/ Thats quite impressive.

Yes, one to hold for a few years and let the Company develop, could be a monster Company within 5 years, happy accumulating on weakness.

Bones: I did get a feeling that they did say in a very round about way, that the numbers of pupils was actually significantly higher than the numbers currently listed in various places on the net. There is a reason. They now have large numbers of pupils for short periods of time and its not that easy to keep a running total - I suspect these groups of pupils come via local councils. Various schools and councils probably use Wey Education to provide extra on-line lessons from time to time, in subjects that they have difficulty covering in their bricks and mortar school. I also got a feeling that Africa could provide some serious growth for Wey - Middle Class (oil execs?) in places like Nigeria (with historic links to UK) aspire to a middle class UK education for their children via the internet. An African boom could seriously increase the Wey numbers. The chairman did point out that the average West African (sierra leone was mentioned) country is miles more internet savvy than an average Brit. The concept of an internet "British" school in West Africa could easily be a big hit in the near future

I was impressed. Naturally a good story was being presented but it is easy to see that being first mover in a tech-driven inevitability like online education has huge potential.Good small team at the top with plenty of skin in the game.No new financials were given naturally but Mr Massie did emphasise that they have had no cause to give out a cautious or below expectation update as in "no news is good news" perhaps. Anyway the formal trading update will come end of August. They did reiterate the known past numbers and their broker WH Ireland's forecasts. Looks good on the graphs going forward and these apparently were produced before the new initiatives Infinity and Quoralexis are factored in.I'll regurgitate my notes tomorrow.

mw8156: You're an interesting poster (looked at your profile) you rarely seem to post on the same company more than a couple of times. But nevertheless I get the feeling you have a nose for these things. I did indeed over extend what was said to me. There was a £200 million oompany involved but not quite as I put it. I stand corrected. But even so, I do feel the same, they are competing with £200m or even £5 billion companies. Take a look at TRIAD ( compared to Cap Gemini or CGI) and you will know what I mean)..... Sometimes I also have a nose for these things. Probably the SECOND biggest software company in Godalming: HTTP://www.triad.co.uk/ (the home of Hurricane Energy).

Thanks Net/Bones. Do not intend getting shut of any shares any time soon. There appears to be very small number of "free" shares out there. A large percentage of the shares are held by the directors or institutions. We will see what tomorrow brings. Thanks again.

Bones: Spot on. I can add that Wey is actually doing better than I thought. I thought Chinese link would go no where ("Great Wall of china" problem) but in fact it seems The Chinese thing appears to be going places (but not just yet). Also numbers might well be much higher than we think. A lot of positivity on "Grammar" version of InterHigh, Language School and public sector work. They also seem to be competing with companies with net worth of about £200 million (or more)... Interesting times. Hang on to those shares!

Its possible that WEY might have RNS in the morning before they do evening presentation (no idea about these things, but possible I guess). I certainly have a few questions I would like to ask .... Cheers Net

666James, I am planning to be there so will report what I can. I am going as a shareholder but also as an "interested observer". Netcurtains is much more clued up than I on this sector so I hope to learn a bit.I am not expecting new info such is the restricted nature of these evenings but I suppose it is possible that something could be said that will be RNS'd the following morning before anyone can act! No idea on that though.
