Can my child sit a GCSE in their home language if this isn't taught at King's?
We are always happy to consider facilitating GCSE exams in students' home languages but there will be a fee if your child takes an exam that we don't normally offer. Whether or not we can offer a subject will depend on if we can find an appropriate person to help with the speaking element of the exam. Please contact Mrs Talbot via if you would like to find out more. 

Do you accept entries from external candidates? 
We will consider requests to accept external candidates, depending on the qualification that a candidate is looking for and the impact their entry would have on the wider exam series. There will be a fee for external candidates, linked to the costs incurred by the school in entering the student. Please contact Mrs Talbot via if you would like to find out more.
