What do I need to know to enrol?

There is no prior knowledge requirements for A level Business, however, all students must have a GCSE/IGCSE in English Language and Maths at Grade C/4 or above.

I really love the way the Wolsey Hall Oxford homeschooling system works. It gives you spare time to focus on the things that are important to you. I really like that whenever we struggled with anything there was a lot of help available and the Tutors are very helpful.

My son Victor received the Cambridge Outstanding Learner Award 2018 in China, for his 95% AS Level Maths result! We had a great time at the ceremony. Victor is obviously the youngest award winner as he skipped two years of Maths in school. The other winners for AS or A Level are either at Year 13 or studying at University level already! The IGCSE subject award winners were already in Year 12, whilst Victor is only in Year 11. I hope he will get more awards next year, with his IGCSE subjects and A Level Maths.

I have nothing but praise for Wolsey Hall, such a great organisation, very professional but at the same time supportive and friendly. The Student Progress Manager was not only a great support for my son but was always there for me too when I needed advice. Deniz has been studying IGCSE Biology, English Lang, History & Maths.
