Oxford Online schools are not just for the rich, the famous, or the famous who can afford them.
They also cater to students who have to deal with a whole new set of rules.
But do these schools offer the best of both worlds?
And do they offer the right tools and support?
To find out, we spoke to two Oxford University teachers who have been at the helm of online schools for over a decade.
Both have degrees in education and are experienced with teaching online, and they both had to answer these questions.
The first is Wendy Lewis, who worked at Walfords online school from September 2008 to September 2010.
She says the Oxford online school is the best online school to learn online.
She is also a member of the Oxford Advisory Board, which provides advice to the school.
“You are not going to get much better at Oxford online than Walfell,” she says.
Wendy Lewis and the Oxford Online school Wendy Lewis was a teacher at Wulford Online school from March 2008 to June 2010.
While her primary role was to train and coach the new students, she was also responsible for developing a programme that included a range of other lessons, such as an online driving course.
This was done in collaboration with Oxford University, which she says “had a very good reputation in the field of online education”.
Wendy Lewis Wendy Lewis works at Oxford Online, which has been running since September 2010 and is run by a group of teachers and learners from around the world.
Walfing’s online school has been run by volunteers for the past three years, which means it is a voluntary organisation.
“It’s a very diverse group of people who are passionate about the education of young people,” she explains.
“They come from all around the globe and come together at a place that is a haven for learning online.”
Wendy Lewis says there are a range or skills that students need to learn at Oxford.
“A lot of the people we work with are working on learning, but there’s also a wide range of different types of learning that students can take part in,” she tells us.
Students who want to work with a teacher or tutor at Oxford are welcome to apply to take part.
“We want to provide the best possible experience for our students,” she adds.
Wendy and other Oxford students teach at Wafords online education centre Wendy Lewis has been at Oxford for over three years and says the students she has worked with at Wofords are passionate and hardworking.
“At the start of the year, there were just two students that were ready to go, and the rest have come through the year and they’ve come to the end of their courses,” she told us.
“So it’s a really good thing that they have come to Oxford and done their studies and they can go back and try to do better.”
The Oxford Online education programme Walfest was started by a couple of Oxford students, Wendy and Emily Williams, who met in Cambridge and got together in 2010.
“The idea came from the idea that people should be able to be educated and live in a place where they feel comfortable and where they can be themselves,” Wendy Williams explains.
The pair decided to build a learning environment that was flexible and open, which was a good starting point.
“There was a real feeling of freedom and freedom of expression, and also freedom of movement, and freedom to be who you wanted to be,” Wendy explains.
As Wofs students began their course, Wendy learned a lot from the feedback from students.
“I remember getting a lot of feedback from the students, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, what do we do with this?’
So we started to take it more seriously and put a lot more thought into it,” she recalls.
The Oxford students also took part in an online course at W of F online, which Wendy describes as “very challenging”. “
And there were a lot that were more advanced than the others, which is something that’s really helpful when you’re starting out,” she added.

“They [the students] did really well, they were able to complete all the courses and get through them.
And then they came back, and it was time to make it all work,” she explained.
Wendy was happy with her results, but she had to take time off work to complete the course.
“What really struck me was how much effort it took to get through all those courses.
I would be up all night studying, and then I would go to bed and it would be like the next day, I would have to go back to work,” Wendy says.
“That’s really frustrating for a lot students, because they have no way of knowing when they’re going to be able go to school and start working
