We believe that literacy and communication are key life skills. Our Upper Primary English homeschooling course will help your child develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language.
Literacy enables children both to communicate with others effectively and to examine their own and others’ experiences, feelings and ideas. Because literacy is central to a child’s intellectual, emotional and social development it has an essential role across the curriculum.
Once completed our Upper Primary English homeschooling course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Secondary English course.Primary Course Information

Thank you so much for your help this year. We have been very happy with the progress Roxanne has made. She has really grown in confidence. It's hard to believe that when Roxanne started the course she had never written more than a paragraph in her own language, let alone English. Although the creative writing was a struggle to begin with she really took to this aspect of the course, encouraged by her Tutor's comments. The time travelling allowed her to become an avid reader which helped her imagination blossom. We hope Roxanne will continue to write her stories.
Our experience with Wolsey Hall Oxford has been excellent! Ella is thriving on her Primary homeschooling courses. She is enjoying the creativeness of the English programme and how it allows learning while bringing in her own interests such as a biography on her favourite author.
Thank you for a wonderful year of exciting and challenging studies! This year my daughter has become a more clever and responsible human being. The English course was so colourful and exciting with brilliant texts and clever grammar approach. Natalia has improved her punctuation so much!
