The Wolsey Hall learning system has been developed over many years and is designed to offer the maximum flexibility to our homeschooling students. With Wolsey Hall students are able to learn at their own pace, at a time which suits their needs and wherever they happen to be in the world. We believe it offers a far more effective model of learning than online classes which only take the weaknesses of the traditional classroom and transfer it to an online environment.

Exam results

We’re incredibly proud of the outstanding examinations results our students achieve – which are consistently above the UK national average. It’s a testament to the hard work of our students but also to the dedication of our tutor team in always going the extra mile to support our students.

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.

Hilary Hill, IGCSE Parent


I compared several homeschooling providers and decided on Wolsey Hall Oxford because I felt confident about the help and care my daughter Aeshya would receive. The support we receive is excellent, and the Tutors are very patient. I would recommend Wolsey Hall to parents who care, not only about grades, but about the study experience as a whole. Students receive the respect they deserve and they get the encouragement to move forward despite sometimes having difficulties.

Lucy is really enjoying the Year 9 courses, they really suit her and she’s learning how to use the material and tutor feedback to best advantage. It’s great timing that she’s having this year to get used to this new way of working before starting the IGCSE courses (never mind the fortuitous timing regarding the global pandemic!). So much better than “ordinary school“, much bigger focus on learning and less on testing. I hated all the testing to give the school data for Ofsted and league tables, not in the children’s best interests at all! All she ever got was a score, no chance to learn from her mistakes which is all part of the assignment process at Wolsey Hall. We’ll definitely be signing up for IGCSE’s with Wolsey Hall.
