At Bales College Year 7 students begin an academic journey which will lead to GCSEs, A levels and a university place and it is important that good work habits begin at this young age.
We set very high expectations and expect our students to work hard. Teaching staff are highly qualified, very experienced, and class sizes are small. We offer full coverage of the National Curriculum in Years 7-9 and students continue to GCSE courses in Year 10 and 11. The Programmes of Study for each subject can be found on our website.
GCSE courses are all based on Edexcel syllabus with a combination of GCSE and IGCSE. Homework is a regular part of teaching at Bales College: students receive a homework diary which is checked weekly by the form tutor and should be signed by parents.
