Our courses for September 2022 are now full and new applications closed – we’ve had a fantastic number of students joining us for the start of the academic year and we’re excited for their journey here at Lakes College.

We’re now looking forward to the 23/24 academic year and applications will open shortly – keep an eye on our website for updates.

Our next Open Event will take place on Wednesday, December 7th between 5pm and 7.30pm.

Maths & English

We offer Maths and English qualifications alongside our courses


If you have a GCSE C grade/grade 4 or higher you will continue to develop English and mathematics skills through your vocational programme, or possibly be involved in our core mathematics course.

If you have a GCSE grade D/grade 3 in mathematics, English or both then you will study and resit these subjects to progress to a GCSE grade C/grade 4 level.

If you have a GCSE grade E/grade 2 or below, you will study Functional Skills in either or both mathematics and English.

Maths and English GCSE at a C grade/grade 4 or equivalent is often a requirement for employment, apprenticeships and entry to University level education.

As these subjects could potentially be a limiting factor in your future success and employment opportunities, the college endeavours to make these subjects as engaging, accessible and relevant to your area of study as possible, no matter what your ability. In exchange for this we expect your full commitment in terms of attendance, effort and ambition for achievement.
