How homeschooling works

The Wolsey Hall homeschooling system

The Wolsey Hall learning system is a carefully balanced mix of online and offline study which we have developed based on our many years‘ experience of providing courses for homeschooling students.

Your child can study with Wolsey Hall from anywhere in the world. We now have children (and adults) studying in over 120 countries worldwide.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to the Wolsey Hall international homeschooling community.

We have created a handy brochure that explains how the Wolsey Hall system works.How homeschooling works with Wolsey Hall Oxford

Understanding how homeschooling works with Wolsey Hall
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.

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).
