GCSE English
As an essential qualification for many jobs and courses, GCSE English aims to develop your oral communication, language, reading and creative writing skills.
The course comprises of the study of a variety of texts, the development of writing skills (including punctuation and spelling) and involvement in speaking and listening activities.
The course is assessed using a series of controlled assessments throughout the course and a final exam at the end.


GCSE Maths
This course will help develop a positive attitude to maths and the ability to solve problems: to read, write, use, apply and talk
about the subject with confidence and enjoyment. We run both Foundation and Higher tiers at City College. In the Foundation
tier the highest grade you can achieve is a C. If you already have a C you can top up to the higher grades in the Higher tier class.
You are also able to directly enter the Higher tier class without a C if you pass our Higher.
