Homeschooling in Cape Town

A world-class education

Wolsey Hall Oxford is thrilled to welcome a growing number of families homeschooling in the beautiful Mother City- Cape Town.

Our courses are designed to develop independent learners who will question and evaluate what they are being taught- there is no rote learning. From Primary level right through to our Cambridge IGCSE and A level students, our courses are created to stretch and engage students.

Many of our students homeschooling in Cape Town have aspirations to go on to university. Our IGCSE and A level courses are well recognised and respected by top Universities in South Africa, as well as, the rest of the world. We also offer a University Advice Service where students can gain help in selecting and applying to the Universities that are right for them.

They will regularly complete assignments as they make their way through their courses. Once their assignment has been submitted our Tutors will provide detailed and encouraging feedback which will enable students to see where they have done well and will also highlight areas that could do with improvement.

I’ve found no better place to discover my potential as a learner than at Wolsey Hall Oxford. The time I have spent working towards completing my secondary education with them has been very encouraging and gratifying. I’ve received such a great amount of support. To add to this, I’ve been happy to discover that the subjects I once thought impossible are the ones I’ve grown to love and do well in. Amazing doesn’t even sum it up for me, it’s been a truly outstanding part of my journey.

My daughter really enjoyed Part 1 of the Skills for Life course on the Lower Secondary Level. Learning about her positive attributes, thinking about her future interests and how to deal and prepare for change in her life has made a positive impact on her well-being. My daughter loves working at her own pace and is totally independent. The positive feedback and explanations on how to improve in certain areas are excellent. Our Student Progress Manager always keeps me up to date with all of my daughter’s subjects and is always very supportive and helpful. We cannot wait to enroll her for Part 2 of this course. This is the first year of being a part of Wolsey Hall Oxford and we look forward to continuing the rest of her school years on this platform.

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!
