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.

We offer the following subjects:

Subject Level Board
Art & Design GCSE AQA
English Language IGCSE or GCSE Cambridge or AQA
English Literature GCSE AQA
Mathematics GCSE Foundation or higher AQA
Science GCSE Triple, Double or Entry Level AQA
Food & Nutrition BTEC Level 1 or 2  
Media Studies BTEC Level 1 or 2  


Pupils will undertake as many GCSEs as they feel able to and this will be different for each pupil.

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.
