If you are hoping to join the new 14+ GCSE classes specially for home educated young people at Lewisham Southwark College, you are required to complete an assessment for the relevant subject.
The assessments will take place THIS WEEK on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th June.
To book an assessment, use this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZWHNQDJ
Please don’t just turn up!
1. You should arrive at the Lewisham Way Campus in good time for 1pm
2. Parents can wait in reception
3. If your child has special requirements (e.g. enlarged question paper, etc.) please let Juliette know Juliette.Grassby@lscollege.ac.uk
The assessments are 45 minutes each maths and English, so if you are doing two assessments (because you hope to sign up for both classes) it could take until 3.30pm
At the moment it looks like classes will be as follows
English Language GCSE: Monday 1.30pm – 3.30pm and Thursday 1.30pm – 3.30pm.
Maths GCSE (Higher and foundation): Monday 11am – 1.00pm and Thursday 11am – 1.00pm
Starting in September 2017, Juliette Grassby-Lewis, a former home-educator who teaches at Lewisham and Southwark college, is looking to set up a special GCSE English class just for home educated young people – minimum age 14 – at the main campus on Lewisham Way [MAP LINK]
This would be a 1 year course, starting in September 2017 and sitting exams in June 2018. (It would NOT be a resit course)
If you sign up for the course everything is taken care of; you won’t need to try and find an exam centre as all exams are taken at the college, and all course fees and exams are FREE.

There could also be an opportunity for home educated young people age 14 and over to join mixed classes for maths, IT and/or science. These courses would be in a special department with keen international learners, not just a students needing resits. Again, all course fees and exams would be FREE.
There will be a minimum level required in literacy and numeracy which will be assessed prior to starting the course.
The college is also able to help with access arrangements but please be aware that substantial advance notice is required.
