At GCSE level, Abbotsholme provides a variety of courses which allow a significant breadth of study.
All pupils take a core of English Language and English Literature, Mathematics and 21st Century Science, covering the key elements of Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
Each of these subjects is taught in sets, enabling pupils to progress at a pace which is most appropriate to them. Beyond this, there is a range of optional subjects: Art, Business Studies, Design and Technology (resistant materials and food technology), Environmental and Land Based Science, French, Geography, History, Music, Drama, Physical Education, and Spanish. Pupils take four of these subjects.
In addition, all pupils attend sessions in Digital Learning, Games, Physical Education and Religious Knowledge. Pupils for whom English is a second language take an iGCSE in English. Any required learning skills teaching is arranged in accordance with individual pupil’s timetables, which may result in a slightly reduced number of GCSE options.
