GCSE English

Studying GCSE English with us is a great way to develop your English skills and gain a recognised academic qualification.

GCSE English at Skills & Learning

We offer intensive 9-month GCSE English courses which start in September, with exams in May/June. Our tutors will support you throughout your course, but you must be prepared to complete homework and study independently in between classes. English and Maths GCSE courses may be fully funded by the Government if you do not already have a grade 4 (C) or above in the subject. Please head to our finance page or contact us to find out more about your options.

If you’re not ready to study English at GCSE level, we also offer other English courses and qualifications. Please click here to find out more. We also offer GCSE Maths and Biology.

If you don’t speak English and are looking to learn, explore our ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) courses here.
