Homeschooling elite athletes

Combining education and training schedules

Homeschooling elite athletes with Wolsey Hall Oxford means these children are able to travel to sporting events and compete at a high level without falling behind in their studies.

If you are homeschooling an athletic child with a special talent in sport, you will understand both the joys and challenges they face on their educational journey. A number of elite athletes homeschool with Wolsey Hall including tennis players, skaters, footballers, golfers, divers and swimmers. We understand the challenges and we can help your child excel in both their sport and their studies.

Gymnast Amelie Morgan

Amelie Morgan, gymnast

Olympic bronze medalist Amelie Morgan is an experienced competitive gymnast. She has been selected for many international competitions and juggles a demanding training schedule exceeding 35 hours a week.

Amelie hopes to undertake an athlete scholarship to Berkley University so needs to achieve high IGCSE and A level grades. By homeschooling with Wolsey Hall, Amelie has the flexibility to fit her studies around her sporting commitments and the opportunity to be successful in both.

Ethan Rose – badminton player

England Junior International Badminton Player Ethan Rose has an impressive selection of medals already at just sixteen years old. Completing his GCSEs early and competing in badminton full time on tour means Ethan was looking for a flexible way to study for his A Levels.

Wolsey Hall is the perfect fit for enabling him to study at his own pace and around his sporting schedule.

Working as a team

We understand that homeschooling elite athletes is a delicate balancing act. Our Student Progress Managers will advise and counsel each student when they join us to ensure they will be able to maintain their various commitments. And we tailor their assignment schedule to meet their individual needs.

We always involve the parent in this process and – just like in the sporting world – we work as a team to make sure your child can realise their full potential both educationally and in their sporting ambitions.

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.

Deepali Patel, Secondary Parent

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.
