OUR PRE-GCSE CURRICULUM

At Oxford International College (OIC) Brighton, we offer a Pre-GCSE programme for students joining us in Year 9.


Innovative, challenging, and creative, our approach combines the highest standards of subject teaching with exceptional wellbeing support. This develops the knowledge and attributes our students need to progress on to GCSE level. It also helps them refine valuable skills – such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication.

AN ACADEMICALLY RIGOROUS APPROACH

All our students take mandatory classes in the core subjects (Maths, English language, English literature, and Sciences), Humanities (History and Geography), Arts (Art, Drama, and Music), and Languages (Mandarin and/or Russian). Maths and English are grouped by ability, and Sciences are taught separately (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics).

To ensure our students are on the right track, they will sit monthly Strategic Cumulative Informative Tests (SCITS), alongside mid- and end-of-term assessments. The results will give our teachers a snapshot of how our students are progressing, as well as any areas for improvement. Students will receive feedback a week after each assessment, and we send out reports every month.

BEYOND THE CURRICULUM

Joining us in Year 9 gives our learners even more time to hone their global skills and talents, as they explore future options through our exciting Super curricular programme.

The programme takes our learners beyond the syllabus, giving them an in-depth insight into various career and university pathways. Through tailored courses, awards, and activities, each student can start to create a rich portfolio of experiences that will ensure they stand out from the crowd.
