Cardiff Academy GCSE Courses


Year 10 and 11 GCSE

> GCSE Courses


Students from other schools transfer to Cardiff Academy for years 10 and 11 for a wide variety of reasons. Common reasons include insufficient individual support because of large classes and lack of academic support for very bright students. We currently have a high retention rate of GCSE students continuing to study A levels with us. Indeed, some of the very best A-Level grades achieved by Cardiff Academy students have come from those students who have spent both their GCSE and A-Level years with us.


Courses available


In years 10 and 11, students at Cardiff Academy follow a “Core Curriculum” consisting of the following six subjects;


Biology | Chemistry | English Language | English Literature | Mathematics | Physics


Students may then choose up to four additional subjects from the following list;

Art | French | Geography | German | History | ICT | Law | Psychology | Sociology | Art | Photography


Other subjects may be possible on request depending upon demand and teacher availability



Key Points:

  • Small class sizes (no more than eight students per class)
  • Expert teaching from subject specialists, most of whom are also Examiners
  • High degree of individual academic and pastoral support
  • Regular exam-based testing and feedback
  • Expert, up-to-date advice and support as regards A-level subject combinations and careers
