Senior Curriculum & GCSE Options

Senior Curriculum & GCSE Options

St Clare’s follow the English curriculum for GCSE examinations.  Although University might seem a long way off when deciding on GCSEs, choices at this stage can directly impact on options when it comes to A-Levels and, in turn when applying to University.

Choosing which GCSE subjects to take will shape what happens when you leave full-time education. Getting the right mix of skills and qualifications to prepare you for your future isn’t easy. How do you know you are making the right subject choices, especially if you don’t know what career you would like to follow?

For any last minute enquiries about admission to Year 10 in September 2020, please contact our Admissions Registrar, Mrs Holly Fowlkes, as soon as possible on 01656 789966.
