GCSE Retakes

If you are looking for the opportunity to improve your GCSE grades then we offer you a GCSE Retake course with a wide range of subject options, specialist teachers and facilities and excellent tutorial support. This course enables you to re-take key GCSEs and also start some new GCSE subjects that you may not have studied previously at school.


We offer the main national curriculum GCSE subjects plus some additional subjects not normally offered at school, for example GCSE Film Studies. We have an outstanding student progress-tracking system that uses target grades to support you in your study and to keep you, and your family in touch with your progress. We offer a parents’ consultation evening each term and at the beginning of your course we hold an induction evening for parents.


GCSEs – Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, Film Studies, Geography, History, Mathematics, Media Studies, Physics. Please see the detailed subject information sheets/pages.

Entry Requirements

You will need at least four D / 3 grades at GCSE, normally including either English Language or Mathematics. For your GCSE entry count we only count GCSE passes at D / 3 grade or above in academic subjects.


To progress onto the full A level course you will need to achieve five grade A*-C / 9-5 at GCSE or better. Transfer to other courses is possible and you may wish to consider the wide range of Level 3 BTEC course we offer where the normal entry requirement is four/five GCSEs at A*-C / 9-4 grades.

Additional Information

You will be able to choose up to five GCSE subjects. (Students are expected to study a minimum of four subjects.) GCSEs are taught for four hours per week. You will have a personal tutor who supports and guides you through the course. You will meet with your personal tutor for group meetings and for personal 1-2-1 meetings on a regular basis. Some subjects have field courses for which a charge is made. We have systems for offering financial help.
