GCSE Assessment - £189GCSE Assessments are specialist coaching sessions for students who are submitting skiing as one of their minor sports in their portfolio of assessed coursework. Price includes skis & boots rental and a 2 hour slope pass. After the assessment session we will prepare a written report and video evidence of your child’s performance, which must be submitted to your school.
All our GCSE Assessments take place at the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, skiing indoors on real snow. This meets the criteria set by the examination boards for submitting skiing as a minor GCSE PE sport. We are able to undertake the full assessment, including skiing a slalom race course. Alternatively, if your child has video of another ski race, such as the ‘Flèche’ races offered by the ESF ski school in all French ski resorts, we can incorporate that in to our GCSE assessment. We can provide an assessment for one or two candidates at the same time.
We run our GCSE Assessments on Monday evenings, 5pm to 7pm, but please contact us before booking so we can confirm availability and to answer any questions you might have about the assessments. In order to complete the assessment we will need to know which examination board your child is registered with for their PE GCSE, the name of their school, and preferably their GCSE Candidate Number. This information will be available form your child’s PE teacher.
Typical GCSE AssessmentsThe session with your coach 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. These video clips will be edited to provide a part of the assessed coursework which is submitted to your school. The video will be available online for you to download a few days after the assessment session. The video will be accompanied by a written report which we will email to you at the same time, for you to submit to your school.
