Our Lower Secondary Global Perspectives course is a skills-based course which will enable your child to develop skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication.

These are the skills that are necessary to succeed in a globally connected environment, as well as at school, university and beyond. By using carefully sourced materials and resources, our course will expose your child to different cultures, perspectives and traditions.

There is particular focus on developing the ability to think critically through captivating and exciting global topics such as the environment, education, cultural identity and human rights. This course is an exciting supplement to our range of Lower Secondary subjects.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for everything! We started this journey with a lot of trepidation and uncertainty. Not knowing anyone personally who has actually homeschooled their children made the entire experience all the more daunting. However, we found the structure and content of work at Wolsey Hall very straightforward and easy to follow. This entire experience has made Haroon take ownership of his learning and be a lot more involved in his studies. This journey was definitely made a lot easier by having you as our Progress Manager! The communication on your side has always been fantastic and you’ve always been so prompt with your replies which made everything so much easier!
