Celebrating 130 years

Join Wolsey Hall Oxford as we celebrate our 130th anniversary in 2024!

Starting out as a correspondence college in 1894 and growing over 130 years to become the world’s most experienced online home study provider is one amazing milestone that we want to commemorate!

Discover how Wolsey Hall Oxford evolved from a correspondence college to the online global education provider we are today!

Join in with us

We have invited all Wolsey Hall students and staff to join hands across the globe to plant as many trees as we can. It can be as simple as planting one tree in your garden or joining a community group to plant several in your local area. Perhaps you can encourage friends and relatives to get digging too.

As Wolsey Hall was established in 1894 our target is to plant 1,894 trees so we have a big target to reach! Can you help us?! We’ll be providing regular updates here and on our social media. To date we have planted 180 trees.

Unable to plant a tree?

Don’t worry if you don’t have access to any outdoor space to plant a tree. There are a couple of other ways to get involved:

  • You can join in by using the internet search engine Ecosia. For every 50 web searches you do, they plant a tree on your behalf. You can track your searches, and the number of trees planted, in the top right-hand side of your screen once you’re using Ecosia.
  • You can donate trees through charitable organisations like One Tree Planted or The Nature Conservancy.
