The DLD College GCSE programme is a fast track one-year course taught in average group sizes of eight allowing tutors to give plenty of individual attention to students. High standards and exceptional teaching produces consistently outstanding GCSE results.
As a GCSE student you will be able to share in all of the facilities and expert tuition that is offered across the college. The GCSE qualification is taught intensively over one year and is excellent preparation for your future studies. Apart from the required Mathematics and English courses, you can choose up to 5 other subjects from a wide range of subjects. The options table can be found at the end of this prospectus. Our advice is to choose subjects that you enjoy and believe you can excel in, but to also consider giving yourself as broad a range of studies as possible as this will benefit your future beyond A level and university into employment.
GCSE students have the opportunity to benefit from many of our sporting and extra-curricular opportunities including: football; basketball; rock-climbing; tennis; DLD's Got Talent; Art and Photography clubs; LAMDA; British Exploring Society expeditions.
Head of Year
The GCSE Head of Year is responsible for overseeing the effective completion of your GCSE courses together with your welfare throughout the year. Weekly meetings are held with your personal tutor and subject tutors to discuss progress. The Head of Year is in regular contact with your parents. They can help you to come up with strategies for coping with academic and/or personal challenges. The Head of Year also issues and supervises the weekly detention. At the end of each month, the Head of Year awards hard working students with The Student of The Month Certificate.
Each GCSE student belongs to a tutor group and meets regularly with their Personal Tutor. There is a weekly session where the whole tutor group meet to discuss issues and review individual targets.
Students typically choose up to 8 subjects from the following list of courses offered:
After successfully completing GCSEs our students are then able to progress to study a wide range of A levels with us.
