Juliette Grassby-Lewis, a former home-educator who teaches at Lewisham and Southwark college, has helped 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]
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.
More details about home educated 14-16 college funding from the Education Funding Agency here http://edyourself.org/articles/14-16collegeFAQ.php
There is an opportunity for Combined Science and also for Computer Science.
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.
A quick question, Our son will have been HE for over a year by September 2019. He will turn 14 on the 23rd of September 2019. Will he need to wait until September 2020 to take part in the GCSE offer at the Lewisham or Southwark College?
You are best taking this up with the college directly, there is no hard and fast rule
Hello, I am planning on deregistering my 15 year old daughter from school due in January 2020 as she refuses to attend due to anxiety. Once I’ve deregistered how long do I have to wait before contacting Lewisham college about 14/16 college? Do I request an application form from the college?
Hi, if your daughter is not already home educated I think it would be better to contact the college BEFORE deregistering as there is no guarantee of a place on the 14-16 college course and if it were not available you would be short of other options.
