Preparing for GCSE's
Pupils who wish to continue their learning journey with us in taking GCSE exams have the option of preparing for up to nine IGCSEs examinations set by Cambridge International Examinations. We are a Cambridge International Exam Centre and are open to external candidates that may wish to sit exams at our centre (please contact the school for details ).
The IGCSE subjects available for our pupils include: English Language, English Literature, Arabic Language, Islamiyat, Mathematics, Co-Ordinated Sciences (to count as two IGCSE grades), History or Geography (or an alternative subject such as Economics in place of these).
Each year, we discuss the options available to pupils for IGCSE exams with the students who wish to continue with us for this stage of their learning, clarifying the provision we offer along with the expectations from them, and gauge pupils’ aptitude for managing their studies and workload in our setting.
Students who continue with us into Year 10 and 11 also take part in all aspects of senior school life as they had done in their foundation years including continued engagement with the Sacred Sciences, Physical Education and other activities within the school community.
