We offer day and boarding programmes available to British students and international students aged 16 and older. The One Year GCSE course provided by RIC allows students to take a fresh look at their options, and perhaps even start one or two subjects from scratch.

One Year GCSE Course:
Students who join RIC at this stage in their education are often doing so to enhance their GCSE grade prospects. The one year GCSE courses are also suitable for those forced to move school due to family circumstances such as relocation, or illness. All subjects on this programme are taught intensively over three terms which means that moving from another school directly into Year 11 can be done with ease.
RIC welcomes students from around the world, making for a very vibrant international community. It is common for international students join a one year GCSE course directly from overseas schools, and it is the perfect way for them to integrate into the UK system. Summer English courses are available to prepare international students for their one year GCSE programme.
Only English, Mathematics, and Science are compulsory on a one year GCSE course. Most students take both English and English Literature GCSE, and at least GCSE Core and Additional Science, although we are can also offer Biology, Chemistry, and Physics as Single Sciences. With the exception of Modern Foreign Languages, any subject can be taken as a one year course from scratch without the requirement for the student to have studied it previously.
