Stour Valley Community School

GCSE Subjects

From September 2020, we will be offering the following GCSE subjects to all our students. Students will be required to take core subjects and make individual choices of additional subject options according to their personal strengths and interests. All of the subjects on offer will provide the students with fundamental knowledge that they will be able to take forward into higher education, vocational qualifications or the work place.

Statutory Subjects:

English, Maths, Science

Religious Studies, Physical Education

In addition to English, Maths and Science which is studied as Combined Science – Trilogy (two GCSEs) or as Triple Science (3 GCSEs), students are required to study Religious Studies and PSHE, as well as PE in Years 10 and 11. RS and PE may also be taken as GCSE course options. Additional subject options are made using an option block system. Students select two subjects, a preferred option and a reserve from each of the 4 option blocks and we aim to allocate each student as many of their first preference subjects as possible.
