Our Guide to Course Levels

Please use the table below to find the suitable level of Wolsey Hall course for your child.

Note that at Wolsey Hall we believe that children should study at the level best suited to the stage they have reached in their studies, rather than their age.  For example if your child is gifted in a subject, they may be able to start a Wolsey Hall course a year or so ahead of what their school grade might suggest. Similarly, if your child needs extra support in a particular subject we may recommend they start a course at a lower level. This will help your child to set securely in place the knowledge and understanding they’ll need to proceed to the next level.

Please note, these equivalents should be taken as a rough guide only as it will depend on a number of factors including which curriculum your child has previously been following. We offer a number of ‘Grade Ready’ Tests to help determine which level your child should be enrolling on.
