One Year Pre-Sixth Form GCSE Course

    The Pre-Sixth Form GCSE course is a one year course designed to prepare pupils for Sixth Form studies. An ideal grounding for the International Baccalaureate and A Level programmes, the course is designed for overseas pupils or those seeking intensive preparation for the Sixth Form. Designed to ensure pupils have the required language and study skills to move into the Sixth Form, we would expect pupils to gain at least five GCSEs in the one year course with an average of around seven GCSE qualifications in the one year course.

    The main focus of the course is on improving spoken and written English. The course also helps with the acquisition of the learning and thinking skills required for Sixth Form programmes, as well as achieving GCSE qualifications in core subjects whilst building confidence and aiding integration into the School. For many of these lessons, pupils will be integrated into mainstream classes with some lessons being taught in separate classes in order to provide extra support in the environment of a small group.

    Дополнительный год, который я провела в школе Райд по программе GCSE, дал мне хорошую академическую и моральную подготовку для Sixth Form. Я получила свободу и поддержку в изучении любого вопроса и смогла принять более осознанное и информированное решение о своей дальнейшей программе обучения. Я также развивалась как личность и улучшила свои навыки общения в новой для меня культурной и языковой среде. В результате я смогла плавно и успешно включиться в учёбу в Sixth Form и избежать жёского скачка между GCSE и уровнем IB и A-level. Я рада, что школа Райд предоставила мне такую возможность.
