All of our G.C.S.E and I.G.C.S.E courses offer a rolling curriculum. So you can join at any time and do our course within a full year (for some subjects such as History and Spanish, it takes two years to complete the curriculum from starting). Taking the exam after a year will be dependent on a child’s ability, knowledge and level of independent work undertaken. Some children may need to stay on for a longer period to ensure they are ready for the exam.

Learn Laugh Play is a Learning Partner of Tutors and Exams, who have exam centres across England. As a partner, all our candidates that study with us and then go onto book the exam through them are entitled to their “Partner fee” as opposed to the Private candidate fee. Tutors and exams offer an Autumn, Spring and Summer series of exams and you can also book access arrangements through them too. You do not need to book your exams through Tutors and Exams. You are welcome to find an alternative centre that accepts external candidates. It is important to make sure that the exam centre provides the facility to sit the correct exam board/paper.




There has never been a better time to study GCSE sociology. With the social impact of the events of the past year affecting all of us, sociologists are fascinated to explore the effects of what has been described as the ‘greatest social experiment of modern times’. Many students say that what they particularly love about the study of sociology is that everybody can relate to the topics that are covered. For example, we all have differing experiences of childhood and families, and all of us cannot help but be influenced by the growing tentacles of the media which increasingly infiltrates modern life. Perhaps you are interested in what makes people become criminals, or the growing class divide in education? Sociology has it all! A GCSE in sociology doesn’t feel like hard work, there is always a new perspective to consider, or a question open to debate! It is not surprising that so many students go on to study Sociology post 16, leading to careers in the Prison service, Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Social Work to name but a few.
