Year 8

Students begin their GCSEs in Year 9 and will take their GCSE exams in Year 11.

The Blue Coat School offers a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares students well for the opportunities they will encounter after their GCSEs.

There are 3 elements to our KS4 curriculum:-

  • 6 core GCSE’s that all students must take
  • 5 option GCSE’s where students can select the subjects they most want to study
  • 3 compulsory non-examinable courses to support good physical and personal development

Options Evening for Year 8 took place on Thursday 11th January 2024.

Students must submit a GCSE subject choices form.  The GCSE subject choices form will be submitted via the Team link which will be sent to students after February half-term, by Thursday 14th March 2024.
