Homeschooling in South Africa became legal in 1996. Since then the number of children being homeschooled in South Africa has risen steadily.

Wolsey Hall Oxford has a long history of supporting students in South Africa and today these include expatriate children as well as South Africans. You can read about some of our South African students here.

Wolsey Hall homeschooling courses provide an affordable alternative to the rising costs of a private education in South Africa.  We offer courses at both Primary (ages 7 – 10) and Secondary Level and through to IGCSE and A level courses.
