Our Admissions Policy

Choosing the right level of course for your child

We like to ensure that our students are only admitted to courses that are suitable for them.

Students applying for higher level courses are expected to have previously obtained 4 GCSEs at grade C or above, or an equivalent qualification. Some higher level courses require prior knowledge of the subject, e.g. Maths ‘A’ level.

Subject Combinations

We recommend that parents or guardians of students discuss carefully with a Student Adviser the number and combination of subjects their child may wish to study prior to enrolment. Some qualification subjects cannot be sat in combination. For example, the exam board stipulate that Combined Science GCSE and Physics GCSE are a forbidden combination .

Subject Content

Oxford Open Learning strives to ensure that none of its Key Stage 3 courses includes material that would be unsuitable for students aged 13. The majority of families studying with Oxford Home Schooling are completely happy with course content. However, if you feel that any aspect of our courses may conflict with your own personal, moral or religious beliefs please speak to a Student Adviser prior to starting the course.

Oxford Home Schooling reserves the right to decline any application to study without giving a reason.

Student Age

Oxford Home Schooling takes students from the age of 11 to study Key Stage 3 subjects, from age 13 to study GCSE subjects and from age 15 to study for ‘A’ level. If you are over 18, then we are happy to refer you our sister company, Oxford Open Learning, which specialises in teaching adults.
