This is an intensive programme of GCSE courses and is designed to ready international students for entry into Sixth Form and meets the requirements of international education systems.

We offer a combination of compulsory subjects so that students sit a minimum of 5 GCSE level examinations, and offer full academic support in acknowledgement of the challenges involved in completing full courses in a condensed period of time.

Subjects offered are as follows:

  • English (First or Second Language as appropriate)
  • Mathematics
  • Combined Science
  • Business Studies and/or Geography
  • Own Language
  • ICT (The European Computer Driving Licence)

A range of other languages including French and Latin are available on request.

In addition to the academic programme, students are actively encouraged to take part in everything an international boarding school can provide, and are invited to observe Sixth Form lessons and meet with the Head of Sixth Form in order to prepare themselves for further education, be it A Level or the International Baccalaureate.
