“I wanted to thank you for the great schooling our children have received under WES. We have been very impressed with the structure of the work, the materials and the tutors. We have felt part of a very well cared for family.”
Stonham Family (sailing for 2 years) – Singapore 2008
“We have been very pleased with the high quality of the course you offer and would have no hesitation in continuing with you if our daughter is unable to start at high school.”
Halstead Family – UK 2008
“They certainly enjoyed home schooling as the package was excellent … not only did our kids benefit immensely, but we both enjoyed the teaching materials as well. If you need a reference for a prospective new family, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
Abbas Family – Saudi Arabia 2008
“English materials covered the National Curriculum in an imaginative, yet thorough manner and students felt inspired by the books chosen as readers. Readers developed and extended student vocabulary and grammar as well as ways in which to develop a plot. The exercises on grammar were accessible and at the appropriate level to maintain interest, yet being enjoyable and fun.
Humanities exercises were well supported with excellent reading material with superb illustrations, well thought out exercise and activities from which students were able to learn and appreciate how others lived in the past.
Science syllabus was backed up with relevant materials and equipment, so that students learnt a variety of principles through experiments and making models. Sometimes experiments were adapted to local conditions such as the Tropical Rainforest in Uganda.
The Mathematics curriculum covered a full range of concepts. The variety and quality of materials was excellent. ”

“I feel their English is improving quickly, especially their spelling, and wanted to thank you all for your hard work at WES for making it possible to have such an easy and interesting method of teaching our children”
Wadsworth Family – China April 2009
“I would like to thank you and all your staff for a wonderful curriculum and support over the past year. I would certainly recommend WES to anyone considering home schooling. If we were ever in a position where we needed to home school again we would return to you”
Wolvers Family – Sri Lanka May 2009
“My family has done home-school with WES from January 2007 to June 2009. During this time, WES shipped home-schooling materials to us and WES tutors reported back to us on the children’s assignments we sent them. Unpacking and arranging their meticulously packed contents became an annual family treat and an enjoyable prelude to the school year. Along with Maths and Science kits that conveniently brought together a plethora of learning aids not always readily obtainable locally, the four curriculum strands, English, Maths, Science, and Humanities were well supported by the WES material. The lesson plans were detailed and augmented by extensive teaching notes, the workbooks were appropriately challenging and supplemented with extension activities, and my children devoured the well-selected textbooks.
Sending work samples and tests to the tutors reinforced the WES home-schooling experience with goals, measurable outcomes, and regular assessments of the children’s progress. Sue Harrop and Mary Michell our WES tutors emailed back substantive reports without delay. Emmett and Jason always looked forward to my discussing with them the WES tutors’ encouraging and constructively challenging reports and their very helpful teaching suggestions.
WES offers home-schooling as a family experience. In ours, home-school helped provide stability and continuity as we eventually moved across three continents. Home-schooling Emmett and Jason has been a cherished family privilege very well facilitated by WES.
Daniel Niles, PhD (Cantab) – June 2009
“We are really pleased. The materials are very to use, even when we have to fit homeschool around our jobs, and with excellent support from the tutor we are overcoming our son’s initial reluctance with reading. He has found maths much easier, and the WES system is very flexible in allowing him to progress at his own rate in each of the subjects. Our confidence in WES has allowed us to make the decision to leave our son in the local school system, whilst planning to continue with WES at home, so that he can continue both his English and his Swedish.
Dr Alison Godbolt MbChb, MD Sweden- February 2010
Thank you for all your assistance over the last few years. WES has been an amazing experience for my family.
Tanya Roberts – Zambia – July2010
“Let me tell you once more how much we have appreciated the contents of the WES courses, the detailed elaboration of the lesson plans, the keen guidance of quality tutors. You made seven years of home-school a safe, clear, wonderful adventure that we only regret to have to shelf in our study room. Life calls for new horizons but the door of the first orchard never closes…………”
