Flexibility of homeschooling

Working at your own pace

The flexibility of homeschooling is one of the advantages that Wolsey Hall students benefit from regardless of the varied reasons why they may be homeschooling. As well as choosing where their learning takes place, homeschooled children can also decide when to learn.

As there are no set lessons to attend, our students can study at a pace suitable for them, spending longer on topics that they find harder so that they really understand the concepts or speeding up on areas they find easier.

Some of our students discuss the flexibility of homeschooling.

Homeschooling is flexible

Working alongside commitments

With Wolsey Hall you can study at the optimum time for you.

You create your own timetable to fit when you’re most productive and alert in the day, or to fit around other commitments such as training schedules for elite athletes, or rehearsals and shows for performing artists.

A homeschooled education means students can participate in many other things without compromising on their studies.

Study at the right level for you

With homeschooling there is also the flexibility for your child to study the level that is suitable for them, rather than according to their age. For some students this could mean studying a higher level, like 12-year-old Oliver who is already studying for his IGCSEs.

Other children may begin on a lower level to ensure they have a strong foundation before moving on.

Children can also study different levels for different subjects, depending on how easily they learn a subject. We offer additional support to those students with special educational needs. Pre-tests can also be arranged to determine at what level your child should start homeschooling.

Flexibility of homeschooling means no more sleeping at your desk

Improved wellbeing

Sleep experts have warned of a sleep deprivation epidemic among schoolchildren which is affecting their wellbeing and mental health. Getting too little sleep is linked to poor educational results, anxiety and obesity.

Without the restrictions of class schedules, at Wolsey Hall children can focus on realigning to their natural sleep cycle and reaping the rewards that this new clarity brings.

More productive learning

Alexandra Maksimova, noticed a dramatic change in her ability to study more effectively when she enrolled with Wolsey Hall.

“I tend to stay up late at night naturally and as a result, wake up later. In a physical school however, I still stayed up late, yet I was forced to wake up early to get to school. Needless to say I soon noticed that this sleeping schedule caused extreme fatigue and an increased amount of stress. I noticed that I am more relaxed now that I get enough sleep. I am more focused and work in hours I am most productive in.”
