Years 9 to 11

At COTE College, personalised learning begins from Year 9 where students are given ownership over their tailored study programme. We believe that the diverse range of subjects offered and the flexibility of options are more likely to lead to greater engagement and more fulfilling years of study.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the international qualification recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide. Dedication and strong performance in the final IGCSE examinations will provide students with an excellent platform for their A-Levels. 

The majority of pupils complete a minimum of five IGCSE subjects graded 9-1. For students who plan to progress onto science, engineering and medicine related pathways, it is compulsory to study English Language, Mathematics and three science subjects (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). For students who wish to study Economics or Human Sciences related courses in the future, they must sit English Language, Mathematics, Double Science and Economics. Pupils will then commonly select their ‘options’ from a range of humanities, languages and art subjects.
