Homeschooling in Abu Dhabi

Homeschooling courses for ages 5 – 18

Wolsey Hall Oxford is delighted to welcome a growing number of families homeschooling in Abu Dhabi in the UAE. Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second-most populous city (after Dubai) of the United Arab Emirates. Our students are typically expat children whose families are looking for an international curriculum which is recognised by universities and employers around the world.

Many of our families who turn to homeschooling want a more flexible curriculum that allows their children to learn at their own pace. Our courses are designed to be engaging, academically rigorous and enjoyable and aim to help our students develop into independent learners.

We are a Cambridge approved course provider for Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE and A level.

Top quality Tutors

Our large team of experienced Tutors are rigorously selected and all hold UK recognised teaching qualifications. Students in Abu Dhabi can work through modules independently on our online learning platform, Canvas.

Our Tutors provide detailed and encouraging feedback on these assignments which enable students to see where they have done well and areas to improve. Students can contact their Tutors via email throughout their course if they need any additional assistance.


Our courses are very flexible as there are no online lessons to attend. This enables students to work through the courses at a pace that suits them. It also gives our students the opportunity to schedule their studies around other extra-curricular activities they may wish to pursue. Many parents appreciate this flexible approach as it allows their child time to develop other interests and experiences and become well-rounded individuals.

This flexiblity also enables students to study at a level suitable for them, for example if they are particularly advanced in a subject they can be accelerated to the most appropriate course level.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for everything! We started this journey with a lot of trepidation and uncertainty. Not knowing anyone personally who has actually homeschooled their children made the entire experience all the more daunting. However, we found the structure and content of work at Wolsey Hall very straightforward and easy to follow. This entire experience has made Haroon take ownership of his learning and be a lot more involved in his studies. This journey was definitely made a lot easier by having you as our Progress Manager! The communication on your side has always been fantastic and you’ve always been so prompt with your replies which made everything so much easier!

To be honest, I don’t think I would have done this so easily without the entire Wolsey Hall team on board – and, all the Tutors’ help. I am quite amazed at what I’ve done!

My daughter’s reading has improved so much, that I’m amazed daily how well she can read. I really like the way the course is designed to teach phonics and graphemes. It gives my daughter confidence to try herself to write new words. She does not ask me anymore for help.
