Homeschooling in UAE

Primary and Secondary homeschooling courses

Homeschooling in UAE is rising in popularity among expatriate families due to the unsatisfied demand for private school places. We have families homeschooling with us in many regions of the UAE including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Many families are unable to secure a place at their preferred school and fees for private schooling in the UAE are rising inexorably.

Wolsey Hall Oxford homeschooling courses provide a well structured and cost-effective way to educate your child. We offer services to many expatriate families here. Our courses range from Primary and Secondary levels through to IGCSE and A levels.

We recommend that both national and expatriate families check the local regulations regarding homeschooling in order to fully understand the rules in the region.

Wolsey Hall has many students in the UAE and elsewhere where Skype is not a viable mode of communication. Our Student Progress Managers and Tutors are very flexible at using alternative online messaging options, or contacting families via telephone, if that is easier.

Ayesha’s story

Ayesha started homeschooling in Dubai with Wolsey Hall after completing Year 9 in a traditional school. She did exceptionally well in her IGCSE exams and is now about to start studying for her A levels with Wosley Hall.

“We began looking for alternatives that would allow me to work at my own pace and when we started researching different options for homeschooling in UAE, we came across Wolsey Hall,” explains Ayesha. “It matched our criteria perfectly: a home education system whose flexibility did not compromise on the quality of support received. We didn’t have to look further and decided to enrol immediately.”

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.
