Students for the 2-year GCSE programme will join in year 10 and will choose to study up to 9 subjects. A broad range of subjects are available in Humanities, Creative Arts, Social Sciences & Business and Science, Maths and Computing. 

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. We aim to provide excellence in education in a supportive and collaborative environment.

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.
