Individual GCSE course

(1 to 2 years)

This is a bespoke programme that can be tailored to meet individual pupils’ specific needs very closely. Pupils may start their studies at any point in the year.

All GCSE subjects are offered. These include:

Mathematics French History Art
Religious Studies German Geography Textiles
Chemistry English Language Italian Graphics
Biology English Literature German IT
Physics Spanish Business Studies Classical Civilization

The exam-focused curriculum is taught in individual sessions by experienced tutors, ensuring that each pupil’s strengths and weaknesses are noted and addressed, that they are fully engaged at all times, and that they receive constant, constructive feedback. Even the exam boards are chosen on an individual basis during the course to reflect previous qualifications and different learning styles.

For those requiring a more rigorous academic programme IGCSE courses are offered in place of standard GCSEs.

There is also regular exam practice, and arrangements are made for at least five hours of additional supervised study per week. Monthly reports are sent home to parents or guardians, detailing pupils’ progress, attendance, and punctuality.

To complement their individual one-to-one GCSE tuition, pupils at Carfax College are offered a full extra-curricular timetable and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education).
