GCSE Preferences Evening

Welcome to the CNS GCSE Preferences Evening.  The information provided here gives you some of the information that you need to make an informed decision regarding your GCSE course preferences. However, it is essential that you take time to discuss course preferences with your teachers, Form Tutor, House Leader and parents/carers. 

We have designed the KS4 curriculum so that you are able to study subjects which allow you to develop your own areas of interest while also studying a broad and balanced range of subjects.  

The majority of subjects on offer at CNS are GCSE’s. However, there is also the opportunity to study some more vocational qualifications.
