Off-Rolling School Children

All children have a right to a good education. But perhaps now is the time to acknowledge that a traditional school environment is not right for all children. We need to accept that children do not all learn in the same way. If they are falling behind they will become disheartened and sometimes disruptive. We’d like to see a more creative vision for these children by schools, education authorities and the Government.

Homeschool Foreign Language

For a variety of reasons, in recent years, public and private schools have been preparing to remove some language courses from their curriculum. As a result, we are seeing more families turning to Wolsey Hall for homeschool foreign language courses sometimes alongside subjects studied at traditional school.

Adult Learning

Adult learning and becoming a student after 18 may seem a little daunting, especially if you’ve been out of a school environment for a long time, but there are plenty of reasons to consider earning new IGCSE or A Level qualifications. At Wolsey Hall we have adults enrol onto our courses for all kinds of reasons.
