Homeschooling in Durban

Developing independent learners

Wolsey Hall Oxford is delighted to welcome an increasing number of students homeschooling in Durban.

Our families in South Africa appreciate the nature of the Wolsey Hall courses which encourage students to explore and examine coursework in detail helping them gain a thorough understanding of their chosen subjects. All of our courses from Primary through Lower Secondary and up to IGCSE and A level are designed to develop independent learners. Students are required to question, research and offer opinions and personal viewpoints in their work. There is no rote learning. Our courses are also designed to be fun and engaging with plenty of additional resources provided. In our experience, students learn best when they are enjoying themselves.

Many of our students homeschooling in Durban have aspirations to go on to University in South Africa or abroad. We have a University Advice Service where students can find out more information about the subjects required and application processes for their chosen Universities.

I’ve found no better place to discover my potential as a learner than at Wolsey Hall Oxford. The time I have spent working towards completing my secondary education with them has been very encouraging and gratifying. I’ve received such a great amount of support. To add to this, I’ve been happy to discover that the subjects I once thought impossible are the ones I’ve grown to love and do well in. Amazing doesn’t even sum it up for me, it’s been a truly outstanding part of my journey.
