A one-year course for international students that builds specialist subject knowledge and language and study skills. It is more focussed than A Levels making it good preparation for university. It is recognised for entry on to a range of degree programmes at 100 universities in the UK.
International Year 1

GCSEs are taken as a course of study before taking A Levels or a Foundation pathway. Our 2 year GCSE Pathway and 3 and 4 term GCSE programmes offer students from the age of 14 years an early opportunity to establish the language, learning and cultural skills they need to succeed in the highly competitive world of higher education.
Intensive GCSE and Pre-GCSE
The intensive 3 or 4 term GCSE programme allows you to focus on up to six core GCSE subjects to help you achieve your potential. They focus on English language and key subjects, preparing you for the Bellerbys A Level or Foundation programmes.
The Pre-Foundation course is three terms of extra study, designed to develop the skills you need to progress to the next step of your education. Giving you the opportunity to get to grips with the core principals of your chosen Foundation programme, this course additionally offers language and academic support.
