GCSE Mathematics (Adults)


If you are an adult (over 19) and wish to improve your maths skills to gain employment, launch a new career or improve your promotion prospects or you want to be able to support your children or just prove to yourself and others that you can do it, then this is the course for you.

You will study number skills, algebra, measures, geometry and handling data.

The course takes place over one academic year starting in September and ending with 3 exams in May/June the following year.

You will attend one 3-hour lesson per week and will need to complete some self-study during the week.

There are a choice of daytime and evening classes. Some flexibility to swap days is possible to fit in with your shift patterns if necessary.

Most students will sit the foundation tier GCSE, but there is an opportunity for suitable candidates to take the higher tier at the discretion of the teacher following a thorough assessment.


This course is for adults who have not previously achieved a GCSE grade C or grade 4. You will be asked to complete an online assessment to check your current skill level before being offered a place on the course.

You may offered a place on a two-year GCSE course to allow you to work at a more relaxed pace if we think this will help you to achieve. For further information speak to your teacher.
