At Poole Grammar School external assessment in public examinations is taken through the 3 main examining bodies, AQA, Edexcel and OCR. Year 9 take a GCSE short course examination in ICT in the summer and the normal GCSE entry for Year 11 students is 10 subjects (English, English Literature, Mathematics, a Modern Language, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, a Technology subject plus two optional subjects). Most boys will sit Religious Education as an additional subject. AS level ICT will be taken by two or three option groups of pupils instead of a GCSE subject. Some pupils will take Mathematics early and then take an additional qualification of a more advanced nature. Other arrangements for accelerated entry will be made as appropriate. In year 12 the majority of students opt to study 4 AS subjects together with an optional enrichment qualification such as General Studies or the very popular extended project which prepares students for university life. In year 13, students continue with 3 of their AS subjects to A2 level and again have an opportunity to take enrichment qualifications which can lead to the aqaBacc which illustrates commitment across the board to both mainstream curriculum subjects, 3 A Levels, General Studies and extended project and also credits the tremendous range of extra-curricular activities that occur in the school.
