GCSE Subject Guide

This guide is designed to ensure you will make informed GCSE choices. Please note: Subject information contained in this guide is correct at the time of publication. Changes to the content of courses may be made in the interests of the students and in the light of advice from examination boards.

The blocking of subjects for timetabling purposes is dependent, to a large extent, upon student choices. We will endeavour to be as flexible as possible with subject combinations, but timetabling constraints and group sizes may make some subject combinations impossible. In this situation, students may not be able to follow their preferred combinations of subjects. The Principal reserves the right to withdraw subject options which do not attract viable numbers of candidates or which result in staffing permutations that cannot reasonably be achieved. If demand for a subject is beyond the number that can be taught in one set it may be necessary, for staffing reasons, to limit numbers in which case the School will select those who are to be offered places for that subject.
