GCSE Maths and English Support Programme

The programme will provide the revision and study skills support necessary in Maths, English or both to help young people improve their exam skills and techniques and achieve Grade C or above in their GCSE’s.

All revision classes are delivered by fully qualified, experienced teachers in Maths and English. Each revision programme will be structured and the areas covered in the sessions will be based upon what each young person requires support in.

Key elements of the programme
