  • Entry requirements

    5 GCSEs predominantly at grade 3 (grade D). If you do not have any formal qualifications you must pass an entry exam. A satisfactory reference may be required.

  • Who is the course for?

    Our GCSE programme is designed for students who may wish to improve their existing grades and study additional subjects, or for those who have not had the opportunity to sit for GCSEs.

  • How is the course assessed?

    GCSEs are assessed by external examinations at the end of the year, combined with internal assessments in some subjects.

  • Where Next – Job Opportunities

    Achieving GCSEs, especially English and mathematics, improves the chance of employment or gaining an apprenticeship.

  • Where Next – Further Studies

    A Levels or Level 3 programme. Students who have already gained good passes for their GCSEs should normally look to progress to a Level 3 course instead of a re-take course at Level 2.
