GCSE

We are a registered EXAM CENTRE able to deliver and assess Functional Skills and GCSE courses. If this is the best route for your young person they will be encouraged to think about how many GCSEs they need to get into their college placement and focus on quality, rather than quantity. Many students take 4-6 GCSE or equivalent, but there is no pressure to do so. If you need 4 to get onto the course that will return you to where you want to be, focus on getting the best grades possible for those 4. 

 

The GCSE offer changes each year and is decided in liaison with the young people - the timetable usually allows for around 6 courses to be delivered plus additional functional skills and diploma courses. 

 

The GCSE offer is decided from the following qualifications, all taught by specialist staff - 

 

Art - graphic design and digital media 

Art - fine arts (paint, draw, sculpt)

Art - textile 

Art - photography 

 

Media studies 

 

Maths - lower and higher

 

 

English Literature

English language 

 

Biology 

Dual science award

 

Citizenship

Geography

Religious studies

Business Studies 

 

In the past we have faciliated music GCSE and this may be available at an additional charge 

 

We have not currently got results as a 'school' but our previous track record speaks for itself!

 

In addition we can provide English and maths at Functional skills levels

 

We can also offer a wide range of online diplomas at entry, level 1,2 and even 3 via our association with several online colleges. These diplomas are very wide ranging from beauty studies to retail to engineering. 

 

We also belong to the AQA Action Award schemes and ASDAN Awards - which are a full range of life skills and practical certified courses. 

 

2017/18 - two EHCP funded students took GCSE. Both gained places at their first choice colleges; Woking College and Reigate College. We keep in touch and both are on track, with one already exceeding his progress predictions.
