GCSE Courses

The GCSE examinations are one of the key times in a pupil’s academic life. These exams not only indicate educational success and achievement thus far, but also pave the path for progression to A-Level and beyond.

Why study GCSE Courses at Swansea College?

GCSE students at Swansea College may, depending upon their age and circumstances, choose either two-year courses or a one-year course. Students come to Swansea College for GCSE courses primarily because of our small class sizes and location Combined with an outstanding programme of pastoral support, we ensure students receive that extra level of personal attention they require for success.

Swansea College offers one of the widest range of GCSE courses, with ambitious students joining a number of routes:

One-year retake course:

The one year retake course is suitable for students repeating GCSE

One-year fast track course:

The GCSE fast track is designed to accommodate students who wish to take a few GCSEs each year or for students who have not attained target grades. This option may also be suitable for students who have moved to the UK from other countries or had an interrupted education.

Two-year course:

This is an ideal programme to support GCSE study as teachers can spend time going over topics in greater detail than in the typical classroom situation and can answer individual queries on topics with which students are struggling.

Subject choice:

With a large variety of subjects on offer, we believe in providing you with a broad range of subjects, including compulsory subjects such as Maths and English and a wide choice of other courses.
