Academic year: 18/19


The GCSE qualification has changed to a 9 -1 grading system. Most universities/occupations require either a grade 4 or 5 for entry or progression. The course is an intensive course, which runs over a period of approximately 9 months. There is an expectation that learners will complete an amount of self-study outside the weekly lessons. As a general guide, this should be between 3 and 4 hours a week.

Exams may take place at a different time to your lessons and this may require you to take days off work.

The new course will have a considerable amount of extra content. This content has moved down from the old ‘higher’ tier.

Depending on demand, we may be able to offer the option to study the higher tier but the standard route will be to study the foundation course.
