GCSE Pathway

This is a one year intensive programme designed to enable students who narrowly missed their GCSE passes at grade C, and are unsure which technical level 2 pathway to choose. The programme will give students the opportunity to retake GCSEs in order to progress to a level 3 AS/A2 or technical programme. During this programme students will study a package of up to 5 GCSEs including English Language and Mathematics plus 1 AS level* where appropriate. Students will be able to choose subjects from a suitable pathway depending on their GCSE results and preferred progression route at level 3.


*1 AS from a range of subjects on offer depending on the student's GCSE points on entry.
