One-Year GCSE Programme

A single-year programme designed with the needs of international applicants in mind.

Queen Margaret’s One-Year GCSE Programme offers a bespoke curriculum for girls in Year 11 (QM’s Year V). The Programme acts as an excellent springboard into the British education system, enabling girls to go on and study A Levels at the School and, later, to apply for entry into British universities.

The QM One-Year Programme is an intensive course of study, and requires a good level of English as well as a strong academic background to take part. We also offer the standard two-year GCSE programme of study.

As well as the core subjects, a broad range of additional subjects is available as part of the One-Year GCSE Programme. The subjects available may vary slightly from year to year, depending on timetables and demand for subjects, but we work with girls and their families to find the perfect combination of subjects for each individual.

You can read more in our brochure below.

Pre-A Level Course

For those girls simply wishing to experience the many benefits of British boarding and to develop their English language skills in preparation for Sixth Form, QM’s One-Year GCSE Programme can also be offered on an unassessed basis as a ‘Pre-A Level Course’. This means that whilst we still assess applicants for entry to QM, the students do not take any external qualifications at the end of the year they spend at the School.

Although my stay at QM was not long, the experience was unique and unforgettable. The staff were dedicated, my classmates were nothing short of amazing and I felt at home.
