Testimonial

Audrey Lakeman

At my initial test it was clear to my teachers that I had strong potential but I needed to work on my English skills. I enrolled on Entry Level 1 for English and maths and progressed to Entry 2 and 3. - After doing well at English and Maths Functional Skills Level 2, she went on to take her GCSEs, she took the exam achieving a B.
