Year 11 GCSE Courses

One Year GCSE

Year 11 StudentFor students who have completed year 10, but wish to benefit from a greater level of support in smaller, examination-oriented classes, and from the high levels of personal attention and care for which Oxford Tutorial College is renowned, a One Year GCSE programme is offered, enabling students to complete up to seven GCSE awards. The course would also be suitable for students who are seeking to retake having completed Year 11.

The core curriculum comprises Mathematics, English Language, English Literature and Double Award Science. Students may also choose a further two optional subjects from:

  • Art & Design
  • Further Mathematics
  • Geography
  • History
  • Languages (French, Spanish, Italian, German and Latin)
  • Science (Triple Award)
  • Or BTEC Level 2 Business (equivalent to 2 GCSEs)

Within a stimulating weekly programme (PSHE), students also develop and extend their creative skills through our Extra Curricular Programme with trips, sport and cultural events. There is also a vibrant social programme making extensive use of the many facilities within the city and university of Oxford.

Bespoke Programme

For students transferring schools mid-year because of relocation or illness it can be difficult to find a centre that enables them to continue with the same syllabuses and ensures that the work completed to date, especially practical and coursework, is not abandoned.

Oxford Tutorial College can provide bespoke courses of individual tuition in such instances in up to seven subjects. From a pastoral perspective it is usually helpful for a student to be assimilated into existing classes in some subjects, with additional teaching provided on an individual basis to ‘catch up’, but entirely individually-tailored courses are also an option.
