For students who wish to (re)sit GCSEs we offer some GCSEs and most IGCSE exams. Exams are offered in subjects where assessment is entirely through written exams - many GCSEs involve controlled assessment, which we cannot offer, therefore most external students opt to take IGCSEs which are an equivalent qualification but do not involve controlled assessment or coursework. Please check the syllabus for your course before booking your exams to ensure controlled assessment is not involved. Note: we do not offer IGCSEs from the Cambridge board.

It is recommended that students taking on the A-Level Geography course have completed Geography at GCSE, as this would provide fundamental knowledge of key content and ideas.

Computing is concerned with the use and functioning of computers. It is designed to give students a rich understanding of the technology involved in computers, how hardware operates and how software is created. By the end of the course students develop a good understanding of programming, both in theory and in practice, as well as considerable understanding of all of the main functions of computer systems. It is an intellectually challenging course, but an ideal preparation for those students interested in studying computer science at university, or who are interested in a career as a programmer.
