Students enrolling in Year 10 normally follow the conventional two years of GCSE study. 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 Head Teacher.
A one-year 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 course offers GCSE retakes and the opportunity to complete your full GCSE course to a higher standard.
