Thank you for posting this question. I hope that we can clear this up. I am in fact the Head at Leighton Park School.
Our core English includes both Language and Literature as two separate full GCSE examinations, as a previous respondent has suggested. Additional Maths is also unnecessary, but we do have extension available for the most gifted mathematicians. Science is not optional, but the three sciences are all given as options. Each student must study one or more sciences as full GCSEs. We do not offer dual award Science ( two thirds of each of the three sciences, leading to two GCSE qualifications), because we want our scientists to have the option of doing all three science GCSE courses in their entirety, and gaining three qualifications. Meanwhile, we want students who are not particularly scientific to be able to pursue other options should they so wish. This means that they can do one full science GCSE. Most of our students choose two or three options at Science.
Our recent ISI inspection cited our curricular provision as "excellent". The strength of it is the flexibility which we can offer as an independent school. It is also worth noting that every single one of our students who sought entry to university last summer was successful, with all but two attaining their first or second choice. Please do visit the school or ask any further questions you may have. We would be delighted to welcome you.
Thankyou Sir, for your kind information. Will certainly meet you soon
