GCSE English includes developing your writing skills and language analysis of 19th, 20th and 21st Century texts. It is a 30 week course with assessment through 2 exams in June. For more information see below or contact Jane Edwards on 024 7697 2524 or [email protected] from 24 August.  Courses start week beginning 14 September.

How do I enrol?

Prospective GCSE learners should have a minimum of GCSE grade D/3 or Functional Skills level 1 and must pass a pre-course assessment before starting the course.  If you have been away from education for a while or have no qualifications but are confident in your every day skills, come and talk to us. Passing the pre-course assessment is the criteria for being offered a place on a course.  We will take learners for ONE GCSE only.  However, if you are uncertain which GCSE to apply for, you are welcome to sit assessments for English and Maths (See GCSE Maths page) to enable you to make an informed decision.

Phone the Adult Education district office on 024 7697 5200 to speak with admin support who will register your intention to join a class OR phone Jane Edwards on 024 7697 2524 or via email [email protected] from 24th August.
