GCSE Options

During the Lent Term, Third Form pupils make important decisions about what to study at GSCE. Parents will be invited to attend an information evening and will receive a booklet detailing the available subjects.

In the Fourth and Fifth Form, pupils follow a compulsory curriculum that leads to GCSEs in English language, English literature, mathematics, French or Spanish and science. Set 1 will take separate GCSEs in biology, chemistry and physics. Alongside the compulsory curriculum, students can choose three other GCSEs. Typically, options will include:

  • art
  • business studies
  • computing
  • design and technology
  • drama
  • food
  • French
  • geography
  • history
  • Latin

Top mathematicians take an additional mathematics examination at the end of the Fifth Form as well as the standard GCSE mathematics examination.
