Wolsey Hall Oxford is a not-for-profit education organisation that puts emphasis on educational equity. We provide homeschool materials, the best online learning systems, and one-on-one tutor support for all of our students, from Ks3 to IGCSE to A-Levels. Interested in our history? Wolsey Hall was founded in 1894 by Joseph William Knipe. After graduating from college, he decided that there might be some interesting teaching possibilities if he combined his excellence in note-taking with an emerging nineteenth century technology: The Penny Post! In his first year Knipe had just 6 students. With the spread of post came the spread of accessible education. During the 1939-1945 war years, Wolsey Hall was a key provider of courses to members of the British Armed Services. A typical month in the Army would alternate between serious action and long stretches of boredom. Many servicemen and women used these quiet times to educate themselves for life back in "civvies" after the war ended. After the war, demand for courses--especially GCE 'O' and 'A' levels and the external degrees of London University--continued to grow. This was the period when Wolsey Hall went truly international and had a great growth in numbers of students studying from outside the UK, from countries like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Kenya, Nigeria, Canada, Jamaica, and Trinidad. Years later, in 1985, Wolsey Hall launched the first distance learning MBA with Warwick Business School. In the 1990's the College built on this experience and provided management development courses to a variety of blue chip organisations including British Airways, the Civil Aviation Authority, Her Majesty's Prison Service, Lloyds TSB, and Shell Exploration. Today, Wolsey Hall has refocused on its roots. We offer a range of academic courses to both mature students and homeschoolers throughout the world, using the latest web-based learning systems to provide our students with a first class learning experience.
