English & Maths
English and maths qualifications are essential, with many higher education institutions and employers demanding a high level of understanding in both subjects.
Our aim is to ensure that you leave college having achieved the best English and maths grades you can. Classes are timetabled and you will be in a group that is at the right level for you, based on your prior experience and grades. All students will be working towards attaining the equivalent of grade C (grade 4/5) or above at GCSE.

You will further develop your English and maths skills within your main / vocational programme of study.
