Helping travelling families

Wolsey Hall Oxford helps many families who travel from place to place either because of work or because it suits their lifestyle.

Home schooling provides the flexibility that such families need and provides the continuity of education which can’t be achieved with main stream schooling.

 

 

Combining study with travel

The Springett family have two sons who study with Wolsey Hall Oxford whilst travelling the world on a catamaran!

“Maybe it sounds a little crazy, but the decision came naturally and everybody was excited. Thomas enjoys the lifestyle. He has been lucky enough to meet other youngsters. And his younger brother John, 12, has also recently begun taking courses with Wolsey Hall Oxford”

Community

At Wolsey Hall Oxford, we understand that nomadic, or even semi-nomadic families, face unique challenges when it comes to obtaining an excellent education. Children who travel  frequently may feel different and unable to connect with their age-equivalent peers in the places they are travelling through.

We have a growing range of activities including competitions and clubs for our students enabling them to feel part of our international homeschooling community even though they may not be settled in one geographical area.

Jin Bo-kyung, Homeschooling student, South Korea

I was mainly homeschooled in primary school and had recently moved to Korea but had yet to learn the language. Therefore, home study was the best and most convenient choice for me. The initial study advice I received was clear, informative and easy to understand. My Tutors were more than helpful and were quick to answer any of my questions and grade my assignments. They gave me their observation on my strengths and weaknesses on each subject. The course materials provided were fairly easy to understand and were more than enough to cover all the key points of the syllabus. My Student Support Manager was excellent in not only guiding me but keeping me up to date on events and other stuff as well.
