Our fast-track GCSE programme enables students to take five GCSE subjects in one year only, and achieve the qualifications required to progress onto A levels.

The One-Year GCSE programme at KPS is primarily designed for international students aged 15 or 16 who are transitioning to the UK education system for the first time. However, the programme is also suitable for UK students wishing to transfer from other schools or retake their GCSEs to achieve the best results.

The course is highly structured, enabling students to not only complete their GCSEs in one year, but to develop the academic skills needed to flourish on the A level programme and beyond at university. Small class sizes ensure OYG students receive a high degree of individual attention and support, and that their progress is carefully monitored throughout the year.




GCSE Subjects


Students per class

Students on the One-Year GCSE programme follow their own timetable of lessons, but are otherwise fully integrated into the life of the school, joining mixed tutor groups with students from across Years 9 to 11, and enjoying full access to our broad ranging co-curricular programme, including music, sport, art, drama and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
