We do not require students to take a minimum number of subjects but it is important to ensure that your child has enough time to complete their additional studies alongside attending school. We provide a guide of study hours required for each subject and level on our course pages.
Learning in greater depth
If your child is gifted or wishes to study certain subjects in greater depth, then taking courses with Wolsey Hall can complement traditional schooling. Your child will be able to explore topics more deeply, research all those burning questions that teachers don’t always have time to answer, and complete extra exercises to stretch them academically.
Your child will not be forced to study courses aimed at their age group if they have the background knowledge to progress to a more advanced course. We assess each student when they join us to ensure they are studying at a level suitable for them. This can mean there is the option to take some IGCSEs at an earlier age.
Subjects not offered at school
Many traditional schools offer a core curriculum of subjects.
Your child may wish to study a subject that is not provided by their school such as Latin, Psychology, Computer Science or Spanish.
Taking additional subjects can widen your child’s options for future university or career decisions.
