What's it all about?

There are many popular and rewarding careers that require a level 4/5 (grade C) or above in GCSE science and, without this qualification, you might find yourself unable to progress to certain higher education courses.

If you can spare three hours a week and you have the determination to succeed, the College’s friendly and highly knowledgeable lecturers can help you gain a GCSE in biology. Benefit from our state-of-the-art laboratories and enjoy learning in a way that is completely different to how it was at school.

Our evening provision has been highly successful with excellent pass rates in previous years, and the College is now extending this provision to daytimes, at a time that will fit in around the school run or other commitments that might make attending the College in the evenings difficult.
