Making Your GCSE Choices

Making your GCSE choices

This marks an exciting time in your school life as you move to KS4.  We have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate through.  We wish you all the best with your decision making.

Are you a parent that has a question?  Please submit your question here.

Who will help me decide?

  • Although it's good to talk to your friends, do not make the mistake of choosing the same courses as them. Choose the courses for you.
  • Talk to the teachers that know you best - Form Tutor, Director of Studies.
  • Talk to the subject teachers and ask them what they think.
