Primary and Secondary Homeschooling Courses

 A growing number of families in Singapore homeschool their children with Wolsey Hall from Primary right through to Secondary including IGCSEs and on to A Levels.

Please see our Guide to Singapore School Grades Compared to the Wolsey Hall Levels 

Families homeschooling in Singapore are both Singaporean and expatriate. They choose homeschooling for a variety of reasons. Many find the flexibility gives their children time to pursue other interests, whilst some prefer homeschooling with Wolsey Hall as a cost-effective alternative to an International School. A number also use Wolsey Hall courses to complement regular schooling and give their children an extra edge.

Legal Requirements

Singaporean parents must apply for a Compulsory Education exemption. This will require them to provide several details including their planned curriculum. Regular progress reports are also required.

Singaporean children homeschooling in Singapore will be required to sit the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) in four subjects (English Language, Second Language, Mathematics and Science) at Standard Level and an additional test at Primary 4.

Expatriate families do not legally have to send their children to school in Singapore.

Singapore President SR Nathan

We are proud to include Singapore President SR Nathan as one of our former students. He studied with Wolsey Hall Oxford for his Cambridge School Certificate achieving a Grade II in 1951. In those days he had to send his assignments by post and often had to wait two weeks to have his assignments marked.

Today, thanks to the internet, students homeschooling in Singapore can study course modules, submit assignments and communicate with Tutors online. And our Tutors return assignments within 3-5 working days – something SR Nathan could have only dreamed about!

Kevin Loh, Homeschooling Student, Singapore

I received an A* for my IGCSE English Literature. It came as a wonderful surprise as I received only a C for my preliminary mock exams in school. What really helped me were the notes that Wolsey Hall Oxford provided. This was particularly so because there were hardly any available resources on the stories and poems I had to learn for the exam. The notes provided were excellent – in depth yet easy to understand. Literature was not my best subject and to get an A* was truly awesome – thank you Wolsey Hall Oxford!
