English and Maths

We believe English and Mathematics skills are essential to your success – both at college and later on when you’re in the world of work.

We’ll stretch your English and Mathematics skills, whichever programme you choose.

If you join us with a grade C/grade 4 or above in English and Maths, you’ll take part in our Stretch and Challenge programme, where you’ll be furthering your skills to improve your employability prospects. All subjects rely on Maths and English skills, so these will be developed within your lessons.

If you achieved a grade D/grade 3 or below in English and Maths, you’ll retake your GCSE as part of your programme.
