Our Primary Computing homeschooling course covers the requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over the course of 4 years. Children who have no prior experience in the subject will need to begin at Year 3, whatever their age.
Building on the principles of information and computation, your child will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing ensures that children become digitally literate. They will be able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology. They will be able to do so at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Please note: this course currently requires Windows in order to access all of the lessons. Apple Macintosh users can purchase a program to run Windows applications at an additional cost. Mac users will need to install this additional software in order to access all areas of the course. Students need to be able to run Vimeo to use this, and you can check if you can by clicking here.

Great success with Year 4 Wolsey Hall courses, therefore continuing onto Year 5. Now, concluding our second year of Homeschooling, I can only say how glad we are that we chose Wolsey from the start. Everything about the Wolsey Hall Oxford programme; from the easy to follow daily lessons, the extra online resources provided, to our fantastic Progress Manager and wonderful Tutors who are just an email away if we need help, have all made our homeschooling adventure the best decision we ever made for our family.
