Sackville School

GCSE Options

Years 10 and 11 are when students will focus on major public examinations for the first time and make choices about further study which will affect the rest of their lives.

At Sackville School we believe it is in the students’ best interests to provide a broad range of subjects to give a balanced curriculum. In the run up to making option choices in Year 9 PHSE lessons focus on decision making and researching career ideas with taster lessons in new subjects.

A place in the Sixth Form at Sackville requires five GCSE passes at grade C or above, usually with at least B grades in the subjects selected for Advanced Level study.
