Homeschooling gifted children with Wolsey Hall Oxford is made easier thanks to the flexibility of our courses. Ten-year-old Justin, who is homeschooling in Romania, is able to study at Year 8 and progress at a pace of learning that suits him.

Eddie (age 14 from the UK) is a gifted child and track cyclist with huge potential. He started his education in traditional school and left in his last year of Primary Level after researching the benefits of homeschooling. “I got very bored in that final year as we went over previous work every day, I was really ready to learn new things and I started to research home education.”

Tarun has been doing Year 7 and 8 English, Maths and Science with Wolsey Hall. He is enjoying his courses and loves the flexibility the whole homeschooling program brings. He is able to plan his learning at his own pace, and plan his day well to accommodate his other interests of playing the Violin and Piano, reading and playing games. The online material in terms of textbooks, videos, the course plan and support from his tutors is helping him get past his studies with ease. During the peak Covid times when amazon deliveries were stopped the online virtual library of Wolsey was a boon to him as he loves to read.

Deepali Patel, Secondary Parent


I must say enrolling Nicole at Wolsey Hall has been one of the best decisions we ever made. At school, Nicole's progress remained extremely limited due to lack of support with her learning difficulties. Since being at Wolsey, Nicole's English has come on leaps and bounds, from her spelling, to grammar, to organisation and formats of essays. The amount of time and support Nicole's tutors, Pat and Michelle have invested in Nicole has been fantastic. Nicole's academic knowledge and confidence has soared since being at Wolsey and I am extremely grateful to you all. (Nicole has segmatic pragmatic disorder high functioning autism, as well as suspected dyslexia).

Michelle Rudge – IGCSE Parent


I have just finished consulting with Michelle about Truman and his studies. She is really an amazing asset to your organization, her ability to understand children really blew me away. She has recommended several methods for us to ensure that Truman enjoys and succeeds in his education through Wolsey Hall. We’re really excited to get started.
