In the early days, Wolsey Hall Oxford would have been known as a Correspondence School. All our course materials would have been dispatched by post and students would have to wait for tutors to mark their submitted assignments and return the scripts to them via the postal system. For some of our overseas students, tutor feedback might have taken weeks to arrive.
Nowadays, rather than a Correspondence School, we like to think of ourselves as an Online School. Our students can access their courses and submit their assignments via our online learning platform, making the process a lot easier and faster!
If you’d like to find out more about our online courses then why not take a look at our Primary, Secondary, IGCSE and A Level course pages.
Digging around in the archives, we recently found a few Wolsey Hall course prospectuses from the 1960s and 1970s which feature some great photographs of our old Oxford headquarters on the Banbury Road. As part of our celebration of 120 years of Wolsey Hall Oxford, we wanted to share what things used to look like around here when we truly were a Correspondence School – it was a real hive of activity!
