New GCSE Specification information

As you will be aware all GCSE subjects are moving towards the implementation of new specifications and methods of assessment. This process began in September 2015 for GCSE English and Maths and all other subjects (with the exception of Design & Technology) will be adopting the new practices and content from September 2016. At Testbourne, this will mean that students who begin Year 9 or 10 in September 2016 will be taught and assessed in this new framework. Now that these specifications have all been approved by OFQUAL we are in a position to share with families a synopsis of each subject’s content and assessment methods, this information can be found by clicking the relevant link for each subject below.

If you have specific questions about a subject, please contact the head of department via the email address included within each subject’s information. You will also find a link to the full specification from the relevant examination board.
