GCSE

Intro text

Chelsea Independent College has a thriving GCSE programme. With our small class sizes, excellent teaching and close-knit community, CIC provides the ideal environment for GCSE students to excel in their studies and beyond.

As well as the standard 2-year GCSE programme, CIC offers the option for students to complete their GCSEs in just one year.

Students joining in year 10 will generally choose to study up to 9 subjects. They have the option to select from a broad range of subjects such as IT, photography and Mandarin alongside the core subjects.

This allows our students to develop existing interests as well as try out new academic disciplines before specialising at A-Level.  Students studying the 1-year programme tend to select 6 subjects due to the intensive nature of the course.

Lessons are complemented by frequent exam practice periods that build up confidence for formal exams and monitor progression.

Alongside academic study, students take part in regular PE and PSHE sessions.

Every student has a dedicated personal tutor who they meet with on a weekly basis to ensure they are staying on track.

Regular trips and opportunities for residential visits abroad extend knowledge and deepen friendships, and co-curricular activities ranging from yoga and football to photography and computing are encouraged.
