Part of our successful Sixth Form, the GCSE programme allows students to study five GCSE subjects in one academic year. We have an excellent track record of achieving outstanding results and many of our GCSE students continue onto our A Level courses.
Students are able to make their own choice of subjects they wish to study from those available. Many students choose to take a subject they have previously studied at school but failed to achieve at grade C; however it is also possible to choose a subject that is completely new. If a student has not achieved a minimum of grade C in GCSE English Language and/or GCSE Mathematics, these subjects are compulsory.
All students studying GCSE will have a dedicated personal tutor, weekly group tutorial meetings with their personal tutor, and a monthly one-to-one individual tutorial. Please see the Kingston College Study Programme for further details.
The GCSE programme of study also provides students with opportunities to take part in enrichment activities including sports, business enterprises, field trips, outdoor pursuits and social activities. It also offers a parents' induction evening at the start of the course and parents' consultation evenings with written reports at the end of the Autumn and Spring terms.
