Curriculum for Years 10 and 11
GCSE and IGCSE courses start at the beginning of Year 10, and pupils have an element of choice in terms of the subjects they study.
The School’s aim is to provide a broad and balanced educational experience, which will interest and challenge all pupils, but also provide some differentiation, enrichment and specialisation according to the individual student’s interests and ambitions.
The courses offered at Ryde are a mixture of International GCSEs (IGCSEs) and GCSEs. These equivalent qualifications provide interest and challenge and are an excellent preparation for post-16 studies. Nearly all GCSE and IGCSE subjects are graded using the numerical 9-1 system with a Grade 4 or above considered a ‘good pass’.
