GCSE Options at Acorn House College

  • Full 2-3 year GCSE course
  • Intensive one-year GCSE course (appropriate for students retaking their GCSEs)
  • Full GCSE Retakes
  • Resitting a GCSE exam at the school

To ensure that each student works in a way that maximises their potential, Acorn College offers GCSE courses taken over one, two or three years.

Students enrolling in Year 10 normally follow the conventional two years of GCSE study, whereas those joining in Year 9 will cover introductory topics on all GCSE subjects. Our GCSE programme takes pupils through these initial qualifications by operating in a tutorial model focused on getting the best grades. In a few cases, exceptionally able students will be offered accelerated courses to complete GCSEs a year early, but only after careful consideration and discussion with the Principal.

A one-year intensive GCSE course is also available for students wishing to retake their GCSEs and complete their course to a higher standard. If you have completed Year 10 elsewhere but are unhappy with your progress, or have completed your GCSE courses but have not achieved your desired results, the one-year intensive courses offer GCSE retakes and the opportunity to complete your full GCSE course to a higher standard.
