GCSE & A Level Assessment - £169GCSE and A Level Assessments are specialist coaching sessions for students who are submitting skiing as one of their minor sports in their portfolio of assessed coursework for any GCSE, iGCSE or A level Physical Education. We work with GCSE and A Level criteria from the Edexcel and CIE awarding bodies.
Due to recent changes to the AQA exam criteria we are not able to perform exam to their standards.
Each GCSE or A level Assessment includes equipment hire and a 2-hour slope pass to give you 30 minutes to warm up, then 90 minutes on snow during which time we will collect extensive video footage to prepare an edited showcase of your skiing to submit to your school. We will also work on some key skills so you ski at your highest possible level.
The edit of the video footage will be available for you to download after your coaching session at the Snow Centre. In addition to the video footage we also prepare a written report which is submitted as part of the GCSE or A Level coursework to your school and then to your awarding body. You can see a typical GCSE Assessment video below, and click here to see an example of the written report which is submitted as part of the coursework.
We typically run our GCSE Assessment days on SATURDAY Mornings. We are flexible on the dates and times for the GCSE or A Level Assessment so please CONTACT US so we can jointly arrange for a session time that suits you.

Who are they for?GCSE and A Level Assessments are for skiers at levels 4 - 10 on our ability scale who are submitting skiing as a minor sport within their assessed coursework portfolio for GCSE or A Level Physical Education.
Typical GCSE and A Level AssessmentsThe session will begin with a discussion of what skiing you have done and areas you think you are good at or bad at. We will watch you ski for a couple of runs to identify some key skills that we can help you improve. While you are skiing we will take a lots of video clips which show your skiing at its best.
