Graphic Products – The ever changing opportunity to play your part in the development of society.
In the light of recent curriculum changes, the long term plans for GCSE courses are in the process of being edited and refined to ensure seamless continuation from the GCSE- ready phase. Final publication of our finalised planning will be available during the summer term of 2017. Each subject is following a GCSE specification which can be found by clicking on the link below. The GCSE specification(s) outlines the coverage followed by our students. Should further explanation be required, please do not hesitate to contact our Subject Leaders by telephone 01706 716761 and they will respond as soon as possible. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued interest and support and hope that by studying the specifications alongside your child’s work that you can gain insight into the coverage undertaken.
