General Certificate of Secondary Education
You have now probably reached the first decision-making point in your education.

For the next two years you are going to study a number of subjects that will lead to qualifications known as (International) General Certificate of Secondary Education – (I)GCSE.

Firstly, there are subjects that you have to study. These are:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Science (Double Award or 2 GCSEs)
  • French
  • Physical Education (non-examinable)

This will give you five 5 (I)GCSEs. A number of students also take English Literature as well as English Language. This is not decided until Form 11.

An additional three subjects will be taken from the list below. These are called “Options”:

  • Art
  • Business Science
  • Computer Studies
  • Drama
  • Geography
  • History
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Spanish
