English and Maths

Welcome to English and Maths

We pride ourselves in our high success rates in functional skills and GCSEs.

Not sure if you need an ESOL class or English class? If you went to school in the UK or English is your first language, these classes are for you. Otherwise our ESOL classes might be more suitable for you.

What courses are there? 

Whether you want better English or maths for daily life, or need a qualification for further study and work, or just for personal satisfaction, we have something for you. 

We have accredited and non-accredited courses, courses for just one term or a whole year, and entry level, Level 1, Level 2 and GCSE.   

Our year-long programmes lead to a functional skills or GCSE qualification at the end of the school year.  We also offer shorter one-term non-qualification courses to develop your practical maths, or reading and writing skills.

When can I study? 

You can study mornings, afternoons, evenings or Saturdays.

When Times Days per week Hours per week 
Mornings 09.30 to 12.00  2 days a week 5 hours per week 
Afternoons 12.30 to 15.00  2 days a week 5 hours per week 
Evenings 18.30 to 21.00  2 days a week 5 hours per week 
Saturdays 10.00 to 14.30  1 day a week 4 hours per week 

Most learners start in September but it is also possible to join functional skills courses in January.   

GCSE courses start in September. You may be able to join in January but only if we feel you would be able to catch up independently on the work covered in the first term, or if you have already studied GCSE and already have good underpinning knowledge.  This would be discussed with you at your initial assessment. 

How do I enrol? 

Before you enrol on an English or Maths course you will need to take an assessment so we can make sure we give you a class at the correct level. You can do the assessment online or in college.  

To do the assessment online click below for the subject you are interested in.  After you have completed your online assessment we will contact you to discuss what course is best for you.
