Retake – a Fresh Start


CCSS offers students the perfect opportunity for a fresh start. Whether at A Level or GCSE, if you have not achieved the grades you were hoping for, don’t panic.

We have 35 years of experience helping students make the right choices at this important transition point. Make a fresh start at a new subject or repeat the courses you have already studied. It is up to you.

Retake or restart, fast track or standard two year, we will help you make the best decisions. Students often improve by two grades per subject and then move on to university. This is your opportunity for a fresh start.

“I’m so glad that I chose to study at CCSS. The support provided by the college and the excellent teaching helped me to achieve the grades I’ve been hoping to get at my previous sixth-form. My only wish is that I’d come to see CCSS sooner!”

There are many, many students who go on to succeed at the highest levels, who for one reason did not achieve their full potential in their exams. For many the right solution is to undertake a fast-track revision course, working with top-class teachers in order to achieve higher grades. A fresh start in a stimulating and supportive teaching environment can be just what you need to get you back on track to success.

At CCSS we ensure that students acquire the skills they need to go on to further study and to excel in their exams.

Teaching staff are committed to helping you build up the confidence, enjoyment and the approach to work that when combined are the essential ingredients of exam success.
