14+ Free GCSE Prog Pilot


City & Islington College in London (CANDI) will be piloting a free, part-time, 2 year course for home educated children (14+) from September 2019.

The course will run 3 days a week at their Angel campus (Angel tube, Zone 1, Northern Line).

The pilot is now in the design phase, so if you are interested in a place for your child, please complete this survey to register your interest and contribute to the final subject selection. The link is repeated below.


GCSE English Language

GCSE Maths


Another subject or subjects, TBC. At this point, it looks likely to be a BTEC (Level 2) in ICT (Information & Creative Technology) with digital projects in partnership with a major tech company (TBD). However, there may be an opportunity to change this, or add an additional elective subject depending on interest. NB the children will be timetabled as a group, so while it may be possible for some children to add the elective subject (if there is sufficient interest to make it viable), it won’t be possible to enrol for just one or two subjects alone.


CANDI will act as an exam centre, funding any additional exams the enrolled children may be studying at home. Tuition for these not provided, obviously.

The link to the survey (note: not an application) is HERE
