GCSE Selection 2021

We are excited to launch our GCSE Selection Process 2021 and encourage you to explore all of the information on this page.


The GCSE Selection Process is a crucial next step in your child’s educational journey. We have been planning and preparing for this moment for such a long time now. It is very exciting for us that we are able to start this next step with such a brilliant curriculum, delivered by dedicated staff. 

You will be provided with your GCSE Selection Prospectus on Tuesday 26 January. Your GCSE Selection Prospectus has so much information to consider, we hope that families read it together and return to it regularly. The purpose of the prospectus is to outline the content of each subject and specify a clear summary of the curriculum expectations. In line with the GCSE Selection Film, which we hope you will also watch together, we think this will provide a detailed discussion at home about the choices ahead.  The choices on offer at Mercia are: 

  • GCSE English Literature
  • GCSE English Language
  • GCSE Mathematics
  • GCSE Combined Science (Trilogy)
  • GCSE Biology 
  • GCSE Chemistry
  • GCSE Physics
  • GCSE French
  • GCSE History
  • GCSE Geography
  • GCSE Religious Studies
  • GCSE Computer Science
  • GCSE Music
  • GCSE Art and Design 
  • GCSE Drama
  • BTEC First Award in Sport

Inevitably, lockdown will have impact on some of our timeline and deadlines. Be assured that we will adjust and carefully consider the steps we take and when. Currently, remote learning means increased parental interest and engagement with what pupils are actually studying. Therefore, this is a good time to start discussions and reflections. Decisions will be made when the time is right, and you will have our support with that.  

For now, we do hope you start this GCSE Selection Process 2021 with interest and enthusiasm, and we are most looking forward to supporting you throughout the journey ahead.
