Teaching on all English and Maths programmes are delivered by subject specialists, with sessions tailored to the development and application of knowledge and skills, that will, in turn, lead to the best chance of success.

The English and Maths programmes make use of the College’s excellent ICT and VLE facilities to promote independent learning and extension activities outside of college.

There will be continuous formative assessment throughout the course leading to summative externally written examination papers in May-June for A-Level and GCSE, and throughout the year for Functional Skills.
