GCSE Resits

It is a national requirement for any student who has not yet achieved at least grade C in GCSE English and/or Maths to continue studying the subject until they achieve a pass. We offer a one year GCSE resit course with students retaking their exam(s) in English/Maths by the end of Year 12.
