GCSE

Our GCSE students consistently achieve results beyond expectations and the Good Schools Guide notes that our ‘exam results are highly creditable for such a mixed, totally non-selective intake’. Initial data from 2016 shows we have had a superb year for our GCSE students, with 50% grades A*-A, 65% A*-B, 90% A*-C and 95% A*-D. Special commendation goes to the fabulous achievement of our student Nadia who joined us in Year 11 and has achieved A* grades in all 9 of her GCSEs - well done Nadia!

Each GCSE student’s course is personally planned to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which lays the strongest foundation for further study at A level and university.

We offer an unparalleled degree of flexibility in the choice of subject and examination board, including studying IGCSE (International GCSE) syllabuses when we feel that the means of assessment or depth of study most suit a particular student’s strengths.

GCSEs are normally taught over Years 10 and 11 and students receive two hours of tuition per subject per week if being taught one-to-one, or three hours if being taught in a small group.

If required, we teach GCSEs over one year or less by devising an individual programme and increasing the number of hours. This approach is particularly useful for mature students who are working and are intending to improve their GCSEs for career purposes.
