As long as one uses NDSolve, one will always get an
InterpolatingFunction object (if the process is successful, of course),
because NDSolve builds an InterpolatingFunction to represent a function
that solve numerically the differential equation(s).
If you do not want these interpolating functions, you must use some
other methods/approaches to get your integration done.

Coercing Mathematica to use subsequently fixed-size arbitrary-precision
arithmetic can be achieve with a construct such as
Block[{$MinPrecision = $MaxPrecision = 30}, ...]
For instance,
In[1]:= sol =
NDSolve[{y''[x] + Sin[y[x]] y[x] == 0, y[0] == 1, y'[0] == 0},
y, {x, 0, 30}, WorkingPrecision -> 30];
In[2]:= Block[{$MinPrecision = $MaxPrecision = 30},
{y[1], y'[1]} /. sol[[1]]
]
Precision /@ %
Out[2]= {0.624400364233472054920976458678, \
-0.668045563872908903982164732251}
Out[3]= {30., 30.}
In[4]:= {y[1], y'[1]} /. sol[[1]]
Precision /@ %
Out[4]= {0.62440036423347205492097645868, \
-0.668045563872908903982164732}
Out[5]= {29.3405, 27.1661}
In[6]:= {y[1.`30], y'[1.`30]} /. sol[[1]]
Precision /@ %
Out[6]= {0.62440036423347205492097645868, \
-0.668045563872908903982164732}
Out[7]= {29.1601, 26.9857}

You cannot avoid InterpolatingFunction when using NDSolve.
If you do not want these interpolating functions, you must use some
other methods/approaches to get your integration done.
Hope this helps,
