Currently all students at CDA are working towards a full GCSE in English. We currently follow the Cambridge iGCSE English course. The course is made up of the following components:
1 written exam
3 course work assignments (500-800 words each)
1 Speaking and Listening assessment
As English is recognised as such a core component of any ‘next steps’ for our year 11’s, students will be supported through the course not just by their classroom teachers but also through additional support both in and out of the classroom. Students will be able to choose the topics of the coursework elements to make them both interesting and relevant to their own interests.
