All GCSE courses are taught in small classes, where students benefit from inspiring teaching and individual attention.

In recent years, all teaching departments have been refurbished and enhanced, to provide specialist resources and to support the latest educational best practice. At St Edmund’s we balance this innovation with the use of more traditional practices and a core commitment to preserving humanity, dignity and discipline in the classroom.

Each student studies four core GCSE subjects:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Religious Education
  • Science

In addition to core subjects, students choose one language subject and three optional subjects.


Core Optional Languages
Religious Education Art, Craft and Design French
English Business German
Mathematics Computer Science Spanish
Science Design and Technology Latin
Physical Education (non-examined) Drama English as a Second Language
French, German or Spanish
Physical Education (GCSE)

Please note: timetabling constraints may mean that not all subject combinations are possible.
