Success in the education of children depends, at least in some part, on the involvement of their parents. If a child sees that their parents are enthusiastic about education, they are far more likely to view their schooling in a positive light, and be more receptive to learning.

WHY SIT THE EXAM IN YEAR 10?

  • It makes sense!

  • It increases confidence.

  • Of our present Year 11 who took the exam in May 2011, 61% of the pupils gained grades A*-C!

  • These pupils are now able to concentrate on their GCSE Literature component as well as their other exams.

Qualifications for the future

As the culmination of five years of secondary school, GCSE (or equivalent) study is crucially importance in laying solid foundations for a bright future. GCSEs lay the essential groundwork for A-level and university courses. Achieving the highest possible grades will boost a student’s chances of being accepted onto the university course of their choice. In addition, employers look to GCSEs as a key measure of a candidate’s capability.
