City College offers a range of FREE English and Maths courses in Brighton for adults who want to get a qualification or improve their confidence in these areas. Our tutors are supportive, friendly and experienced. We have excellent achievement rates and will work with you to help you reach your goals.

GCSE English and Maths tuition fees will now be waived for all home students.

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.

Pre GCSE Maths and English Courses

If you have not been in education for some time or you feel your English and maths skills need a brush up, we are pleased to be able to offer Pre-GCSE classes in both English and Maths.

These courses will focus on:
