GCSE at Year 11
Most students follow the one-year GCSE course (Year 11) that is part of a three- year programme leading to A level qualifications (Year 12 and 13). Students typically complete nine GCSEs, comprising all core subjects and their chosen optional subjects, in one year.
GCSE at Year 10
Students who are academically capable may follow the two-year course (Year 10), which allows them to complete all core GCSE subjects in the first year before taking up their optional GCSE subjects and one or two A level subjects in the second year; effectively beginning A level study one year early.
GCSE core (compulsory) subjects: Mathematics, Double Science, English Language, English Literature, PSHEE and Sports.
Optional subjects*: French, Spanish, Drama, Computing, History, Music, Economics, Art & Design.
