Our emphasis for GCSEs is on deeper learning within key subject areas, rather than quantity. We recognise the need for students to experience a wide curriculum, to be informed citizens, but we do not see the need for everything to go through formal examination - unless the student wishes to.


1. Core subjects


  • GCSE English Language & Literature - (AQA)
  • GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel/Pearson)
  • GCSE Science (AQA Synergy, double award)


2. Additional optional subjects


  • GCSE History (AQA TBC)
  • GCSE Art & Design (AQA)
  • GCSE Music (AQA)
  • BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Performing Arts (Edexcel/Pearson)


3. Languages


Languages are encouraged at The Jam Academy, and regular workshops from visiting linguistics teachers take place. The school can enter students into a GCSE exam for any language, but they will need to be pro-active in their learning - using apps, internet and other online resources to learn the language, while we support them in preparing and taking the exam.
