GCSEs

In the equivalent of Year 10 students begin their GCSE courses, which they complete at the end of Year 11. Some students may begin their GCSE courses a year earlier and take some of their exams in Year 10. 

We offer 11 different GCSE courses, with pupils, in consultation with parents and the school, deciding how many and how soon GCSEs are taken. The school is a registered exam centre.

Our GCSE Results

Since we started offering GCSEs eleven years ago our school has had an outstanding record, with pupils achieving an average of 7 high grade GCSEs with an overall 85% A* to C pass rate. We believe this is down to a number of factors. The excellence of our teaching staff; the thorough exploration of topics through pupil involvement in the learning process; the high level of care and respect given to our pupils; and the relaxed, stress free, small-scale environment.

 

Although our classes are well equipped, as a small school we have comparatively less facilities than a larger school, but nevertheless results are excellent in all subject areas. For example our average grade in the separate sciences is A, with one pupil achieving 98%, despite the absence of a dedicated science laboratory.
