Frequently Asked Questions

How many option choices can I make? 

When choosing your options subjects online you are asked to make three choices plus a reserve. This is an important decision, and you should make the most of the support and information available when making your choices.

Are my choices guaranteed? 

We do our utmost to ensure that you will receive your three top choices; however, in a small percentage of cases this may not be possible. This is why it is important that you give due consideration to your reserve choice. 

What is the difference between a GCSE and an IGCSE? 

At JCG we offer IGCSEs in English and Geography. The IGCSE is an International qualification and has the same status as a GCSE when applying for university or employment. We believe that the IGCSE courses in certain subjects are more suitable for our students and bridge the gap between GCSE and A level more effectively. 

Will I stay in the same House group? 

Yes. This will allow you to build on the relationships you have made in your House and enable you to continue to play an active role in our excellent House system. 

What about work experience? 

In addition to the formal curriculum, you will have the opportunity to participate in Trident work experience, which offers you the chance to undertake significant work-related learning. 

What will I need to get in my GCSEs to continue to Sixth Form at JCG? 

In order to help you make the most appropriate choices for your post-GCSE education, it is expected that you will achieve a minimum of five 6 - 9 grades, with at least a 5 grade in English Language and Mathematics, in order to progress to Sixth Form at JCG. We will do all we can to help you to achieve this.
