More than 94% of students taking full-time GCSE programmes or standalone maths and English GCSEs at City of Oxford College’s City Centre Campus and Technology Campus in Blackbird Leys, achieved a pass in this year’s exams.

Many of the college’s GCSE students are learners who resit maths, English or both, to continue in education or progress their career.

This includes mature students who need these GCSEs to progress in the workplace, learners who may have missed the chance to go to university and want to study at degree level, alongside part-time students who have studied GCSEs at evening classes.
