International school grades

Selecting the right course for your child

Please use the table below to find the suitable level of Wolsey Hall Oxford course for your child.

These equivalents should be taken as a rough guide only as it will depend on a number of factors including which curriculum your child has previously been following. We offer a number of ‘Grade Ready’ Tests to help determine which level your child should be enrolling on.

Please note we will be able to help you select the correct course level for your child. At Wolsey Hall we believe that the stage your child has reached in their education is most important in determining which course level to complete. For example, if a child is gifted, then they may need to start at a level higher than their school age would suggest. Similarly, if your child requires some additional support in a particular subject it may make sense for them to start their studies at a lower level.
