The GCSE programme at CCSS
Education to GCSE level is required of students who wish to study for A-levels that are themselves a common requirement for entry to universities in the UK and abroad.
We offer a GCSE programme that can be taken over one year.
We offer a broad range of subjects that provides students with a varied and balanced curriculum covering aspects of linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical and aesthetic and creative interests. Personal, social and health education is an important part of the education our students receive.
Who should choose a GCSE programme at CCSS?
UK students who, after completing Year 10 at local schools feel that they will benefit from the small class sizes and personal attention.
Students whose families are planning to move to Cambridge.
Re-sit students who have not performed as well as they expected and wish to retake GCSE in order to improve their grades and get a firm foundation for further education.
International students who want to prepare for A-level courses.
With an average class size of six, students receive strong individual support. They are looked after by the Head of GCSE who sees them daily and who keeps a close eye on progress and achievement. Our British and overseas students also benefit from our dedicated GCSE International Study Centre at our Salisbury Villas campus.
Available GCSE subjects
Students usually take between five and seven subjects, depending on their background and future plans.
