We are now able to offer free GCSE courses in English and maths (Foundation Tier).

The starting date for these courses will be in September 2013. 

You will be invited to an informal, one to one meeting to assess whether you are at the right level for GCSE and, if not quite ready, you will be offered a preparation course at a level to suit you.

All our courses are run in a mature, friendly and supportive environment and taught by qualified and experienced teachers.
