Overview

The course will reinforce topics you’ve already covered in previous studies, and boost your understanding and confidence in areas you may have found more difficult, like algebra or statistics.

You will need a minimum of two GCSEs at grade 3 or above. Specifically a grade 3 will be required in GCSE Mathematics. However a two year GCSE Mathematics course or Functional Skills can be undertaken with a grade 1 or 2.

The Foundation level is intended for students who have previously gained a grade D in GCSE Mathematics, whilst the Higher is there for those students who wish to improve on their C grade.
As part of the course you will cover the following aspects of Mathematics

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ratio, Proportion and rates of change
  • Geometry and Measure
  • Probability

All of our lecturers are leading subject and industry professionals. 

We use digital innovation in delivering teaching and learning. On the Havant Campus, Google for Education technology is embedded throughout the College’s curriculum, equipping you with skills in industry-recognised cloud-based applications for your onward career journey.

The College offers a variety of teaching and learning approaches including lectures, tutorials, studios, workshops, presentations and group discussions

 

There are three written examinations taken at the end of the year.


I would say it’s a college that really balances academia with fun, there is lots of extra-curricular stuff that you can get involved in. It has a really good work/life balance.

Laura Hagedorn, A Level student

My time at the college was definitely life changing, I have learnt a lot of new skills, and obviously it’s a completely new experience. The support was great, there was always people there to help and try make it as easy as they can for you. The college is really fantastic, it has helped me on the way to get to what I want to achieve within my career goals.

Erin Morgan, BTEC student

My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.
