The Unicorn School

A Specialist School supporting pupils with dyslexia and related learning difficulties

GCSE Education

GCSE EducationWe have carefully selected a GCSE programme which will enable our pupils to achieve a sound bank of essential qualifications. 

By focussing on a small number of key subjects, we give our pupils the best opportunity to succeed. 
Our GCSE teachers are highly qualified professionals.  Specialist teaching makes the GCSE syllabus accessible to pupils with dyslexia and related learning difficulties.

All pupils will undertake at least 6 GCSEs: English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Combined Science (equivalent to 2 qualifications) and Food Preparation & Nutrition.  In addition to this they will be studying for a Level 1 BTEC in Construction, which is equal to one GCSE.  Pupils will have the option to undertake an additional GCSE in Art & Design.

Our GCSE courses have been chosen to play to our pupils’ many strengths, avoiding subjects with a heavy bias towards writing, spelling and punctuation; or with an extensive research element.
