Homeschooling in France

From Primary to A level courses

In recent years, Wolsey Hall Oxford has seen an increasing number of students homeschooling in France enrolling on our courses. Families in France are frequently looking to home education options as an alternative to public school.

Due to the recent reforms in France regarding homeschooling, we suggest you check with your local academie or mairie for further guidance before embarking on a homeschooling course.

Wolsey Hall Oxford provides structured, stimulating and academically rigorous Primary and Secondary courses, including IGCSE and A level, designed specifically for homeschoolers. Our team of Tutors is experienced in teaching at all levels and is committed to a 3-5 working day response when returning assignments.

Quality courses

Wolsey Hall Oxford was established in 1894 and has a reputation for providing quality courses to students worldwide.

Our Primary and Secondary courses are written by qualified teachers and are accompanied by excellent textbooks. For older students homeschooling in France, we offer a full range of IGCSE and A level courses which mainly follow the Cambridge International Exam Board.

The Cambridge exams are recognised by universities worldwide and provide an excellent basis for moving on to further education.

About our courses

Our course fees include all the books your child will need to complete a course, as well as access to our online learning platform. Here your child can retrieve their course materials, submit their assignments and communicate with their Tutors.

We also offer a 45-day refund policy. In addition to subject Tutors, your child will also be allocated a Student Progress Manager who will support them throughout their course, and help them keep on track with assignment submissions. A Wolsey Hall course provides a cost effective but quality alternative to a private school education for those homeschooling in France.

A level
Nic was a student at Wolsey Hall from 2016 to 2018. We are from South Africa where Nic went to a Afrikaans nursery school, and moved to France where he started in a French school, but after a year we decided to begin English tuition at Wolsey Hall, completing Year 3 and term 1 and 2 of Year 4. We then relocated to the UK and he was assessed by the school we chose and was on par with the other children his age. He did extremely well in Year 4 with various distinctions. From year 5 the pupils are evaluated on a different level and Nic achieved academic colours at the end of Year 5! We are so proud of him and wish to thank Wolsey Hall for all that they have given us. Without Wolsey as a foundation to build Nic’s learning and academic curriculum from, this would not have been possible for Nic. We are truly blessed that we were able to affiliate with Wolsey to invest in our son’s future!

Thank you so much for your help this year. We have been very happy with the progress Roxanne has made. She has really grown in confidence. It’s hard to believe that when Roxanne started the course she had never written more than a paragraph in her own language, let alone English. Although the creative writing was a struggle to begin with she really took to this aspect of the course, encouraged by her Tutor’s comments. The time travelling allowed her to become an avid reader which helped her imagination blossom. We hope Roxanne will continue to write her stories.
