Guide to the UK education system

At Wolsey Hall Oxford we offer a British curriculum to our students but many international families find a guide to the UK education system is helpful. Our article explains the different stages.

Home Education Exam Results

It was another year of fantastic home education exam results for students at Wolsey Hall. Our IGCSE and A Level results were better than the England/UK average, proving that for some students homeschooling is the ideal way to learn.

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.

Correspondence Courses – Our 1975 Prospectus

It is interesting to note how many parallels there are between the students enrolling on our correspondence courses in 1975 with the students we welcome on to our online courses today.

Travelling Homeschoolers

One of the things we value at Wolsey Hall Oxford is flexibility. Our students come from all over the world, and are able to study in a way that suits their situation, schedule, and goals – even if they’re travelling homeschoolers and constantly on the move, like the Springett family.

Pros and cons of homeschooling

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).

I have just finished consulting with Michelle about Truman and his studies. She is really an amazing asset to your organization, her ability to understand children really blew me away. She has recommended several methods for us to ensure that Truman enjoys and succeeds in his education through Wolsey Hall. We’re really excited to get started.
