Wolsey Hall has designed its Lower Secondary homeschooling courses (Years 7, 8 and 9 in the UK – typically ages 11-13) so that each “Year” takes 9 months, the equivalent of “an academic year”.

Tarun has been doing Year 7 and 8 English, Maths and Science with Wolsey Hall. He is enjoying his courses and loves the flexibility the whole homeschooling program brings. He is able to plan his learning at his own pace, and plan his day well to accommodate his other interests of playing the Violin and Piano, reading and playing games. The online material in terms of textbooks, videos, the course plan and support from his tutors is helping him get past his studies with ease. During the peak Covid times when amazon deliveries were stopped the online virtual library of Wolsey was a boon to him as he loves to read.

I must say enrolling Nicole at Wolsey Hall has been one of the best decisions we ever made. At school, Nicole’s progress remained extremely limited due to lack of support with her learning difficulties. Since being at Wolsey, Nicole’s English has come on leaps and bounds, from her spelling, to grammar, to organisation and formats of essays. The amount of time and support Nicole’s tutors, Pat and Michelle have invested in Nicole has been fantastic. Nicole’s academic knowledge and confidence has soared since being at Wolsey and I am extremely grateful to you all. (Nicole has segmatic pragmatic disorder high functioning autism, as well as suspected dyslexia).

I have just finished consulting with Michelle about Truman and his studies. She is really an amazing asset to your organization, her ability to understand children really blew me away. She has recommended several methods for us to ensure that Truman enjoys and succeeds in his education through Wolsey Hall. We’re really excited to get started.

Support from Wolsey Hall was at all times excellent, in particular from Learning Support Services who were always prompt, efficient and friendly. The motivational sessions were a big help too when my son was struggling at one stage. A few simple suggestions made all the difference.

Homeschooling with Wolsey Hall


Wolsey Hall was founded in Oxford in 1894 by Joseph William Knipe (pictured), the grandfather of our Director of Studies. He had the novel idea of sending his lecture notes from teacher training college via a new nineteenth-century technology – the Penny Post!
