Mathematics GCSE

Students who have not yet taken their GCSE and those who did not gain at least a grade 5 at high school are best suited to this one year course. In addition students who already have a grade 5 but need a higher grade can take this course on the Higher Tier in order to achieve a higher grade.

The aim of the course is to get you through GCSE maths as painlessly as possible so that you can move on to bigger and better things… and maybe even more maths! Students will be expected to attend ALL lessons and complete at least 3 hours of independent study a week.

We are well aware of the fact that a great number of students needing to resit GCSE Mathematics do not actually like the subject and do not enjoy doing it – It’s OK we understand that and we’re here to help.

How SFC will help you to boost your CV by developing your skills and qualifications…

Most employers want you to show you can work with numbers and expect you to have a qualification in Mathematics.

Most apprenticeships require a grade 5 in GCSE Mathematics and some professions such as teaching and nursing now expect a grade higher than a 5.

What our students say…

“Taking Mathematics at College suits me as we are treated as young adults and we get one-to-one support to help us to do well in the subject. Spending the time getting a 5 or above will help me to achieve my dream in going to university to study Sport Development”.

“I enjoyed the course and had a great teacher. I am not the best mathematician, but the course is challenging which I enjoyed.”
