Social Anxiety and School Phobia

Wolsey Hall has a growing number of homeschooling students whose parents have taken the decision to take them out of mainstream education due to social anxiety or school phobia and we understand the issues faced by such students and their families.

Our Learning Support Manager has supported a number of children who have had negative experiences at school and is always on hand to provide help and advice. In particular, we offer a range of services including Mentoring and Special Educational Needs support to help to overcome the issues faced by your child.

Pressure and Stress

Social media has brought many benefits for young people. It allows them to stay in touch with their friends and expand their social network. But it also has a less positive side: the rise of “cyber bullying” and the “selfie culture” are just two examples. Add to this the increasing pressures on children with relentless testing and examinations and it’s little wonder that young people are feeling the strain!

A chance to thrive

For many children with anxiety or school phobia, homeschooling can provide an alternative method of learning away from the challenges they face in mainstream schooling.

Indeed, many children who may not have thrived in a traditional classroom environment often grow and flourish when they are given the opportunity to learn at home.

Charlie, Secondary Homeschooling Student, UK

I found homeschooling tough at first and didn’t think I could do it. I have enjoyed being homeschooled because I can understand the work better without the distraction of a crowded classroom. I have found studying with Wolsey Hall very good. The work is challenging but not too hard and the tutors comments are very helpful. It is hard to find a way to learn at first because it is different from school but once you find a way that works for you it will get better. If you think something is hard when you first look at it just have a go you might be surprised how much you can really do! (Charlie came out of school to find a nicer environment).
