We offer a standalone GCSE English Language course with three hours of instruction a week.  You will also get access to our virtual-learning environment and other online resources.

You will be assessed in three key areas: reading, writing and speaking and listening.

The times for these classes vary, with classes in the day and evening, so please contact us and we will try to find a day and time suitable for you to study.
