GCSE English and Maths Requirements

English and Maths are the most fundamental skills for everyday work and life a young person can have.

In order to help our students achieve success now, and in the future, we will ensure they continue to make progress in these subjects.

Whatever grade a student achieves in their GCSEs, their programme of study at City College Norwich will include opportunities for them to develop and renew their English and Maths skills. They will be supported to reach their full potential both in their chosen subject and in classes that build on their prior attainment.

Our Approach to English and Maths

English and maths GCSE with grades expressed as A*-G

 

 

English and maths GCSE with grades expressed as 9-1

If you don’t have a GCSE grade C in either maths or English:

You will work towards achieving a good pass in both English and maths as part of your programme of study.  You may study GCSE so you can retake the qualification or you may take a Functional Skills ‘stepping stone’ course instead of a GCSE qualification if this is more suitable for you.

 

If you don’t have a GCSE grade 4 in either maths or English:

You will work towards achieving a good pass in both English and maths as part of your programme of study.  You may study GCSE so you can retake the qualification or you may take a Functional Skills ‘stepping stone’ course instead of a GCSE qualification if this is more suitable for you.

If you have a GCSE grade C in one subject but not the other:

You will be enrolled on a qualification as part of your programme of study, to work towards a grade C in the subject you have yet to achieve in. This will either be a GCSE or Functional Skills ‘stepping stone’ course.

 

If they have a GCSE grade 4 in one subject but not the other:

You will be enrolled on a qualification as part of your programme of study, to work towards a grade 4 in the subject they have yet to achieve in. This will either be a GCSE or Functional Skills ‘stepping stone’ course.

If you achieve a grade 4 in GCSE maths or English, we will discuss with you if they wish to retake the qualification to achieve a grade 5 or better as this may be important for some career and University progression.    

If you have GCSE grade C or better in both maths or English:

For students with Grade C’s in both English and maths, you will not be enrolled on any maths or English qualifications, but will continue to develop these within your programme of study to ensure they fulfil your potential. 

 

 

 

If they have GCSE grade 4 or better in both maths or English:

If you have a Grade 4 result in English and/or maths we will discuss with you if they wish to retake the qualification to achieve a grade 5 or better as this may be important for some career and University progression.   

If you have a Grade 5 or above, we will continue to develop maths and English skills as appropriate within your programme of study to ensure you fulfil your potential.
