IGCSE/GCSEs are official qualifications. The examinations are set, marked and graded externally in the United Kingdom. The examination boards for our school are Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and AQA.
The IGCSE grades are particularly important when students apply to university before their International Baccalaureate Diploma grades are known in Year 13. The two year course is therefore very important for the future of our students.
All students in Key Stage 4 study:
- English Language
- English Literature
- Co-ordinated Sciences (double award)
Students also choose four additional subjects from several options which include French, German, Spanish, Art, Information Technology, History, Geography, Business Studies, Physical Education and Music. Many students also complete GCSE examinations in Polish or their mother tongue.
GCSE examinations are excellent preparation for the final two years of schooling and are required by many British universities as part of their application process. GCSE examinations pave the way for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
We encourage our students to strive for academic excellence in every subject, and we are very proud of the examination results achieved by our students every year.
