1 Year IGCSE Programme

YEAR 11 // AGE 15–17

The 1 Year IGCSE Programme offers a range of subjects, leading to up to 6 I/GCSE examinations and is an excellent preparation for international students before they begin their A Level studies.

The 1 Year IGCSE Programme is suitable for international students who wish to complete I/GCSE examinations in just one year, in preparation for entry into Sixth Form to study A Levels.

The programme includes 30 hours of academic tuition and 7 hours of supervised study (‘prep’).  In addition, there is up to 5 hours of sports and activities each week and an optional excursion every weekend.

Every student has regular reports and benefits from target setting in weekly tutorials, which supports future subject choices and career plans.

Students must enrol in September for three terms.

The range of I/GCSE courses on offer is reviewed regularly and new subjects are offered from time to time.  Equally, it cannot be guaranteed that all subjects listed will be available in any particular year, as this depends upon the number of students who wish to take them.  However, we will do our best to accommodate requests for specific subjects.  Students with a lower level of English will study EAL instead of Biology.
