We offer several courses leading to qualifications in English. We will complete a diagnostic assessment with you to find out which course will be most suitable for your needs. If English is not your first language we can tailor the course to help you develop your understanding and confidence.


On our English courses, we will help you improve your skills in punctuation, spelling and grammar. The GCSE English Language course involves the study of both fiction and non-fiction, texts from different cultures, creative writing and spoken language. You will also learn to analyse the different techniques used in different forms of writing. The course will also help you to improve your independent study skills. Our Functional Skills and ESOL courses are assessed across three units - Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing.  We will work with you to develop your skills in these areas and support you to progress onto the GCSE course.

How will it be delivered?

These courses are all assessed by examination.

Entry requirements

We will use your previous grade and an initial assessment to help us to identify the best course for you.  We offer GCSE and Functional Skills courses and Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 for students who need more time to develop their skills.
