If you are interested in joining our maths classes, please see our pre-course assessment page

Bromley Adult Education College offers maths classes at the college’s two main centres: the Kentwood Centre in Penge (Kingsdale Road, SE20 7PR) and the Poverest Centre in Orpington (Poverest Road, BR5 2DQ).

All sessions last two and a half to three hours and take place in the morning, some afternoons, and evening.  These classes are ideal for students who wish to improve their maths for study, everyday life or to help them get a job. Students can work towards nationally recognised qualifications or develop their skills informally in Multiply courses.

Maths qualification programmes are fully funded (free) for individuals who meet the residency criteria and have not previously attained a GCSE grade A* to C or grade 4, or higher.

Any student who would like to join our classes will need to attend an initial assessment session. Please note that we might not be able to offer you a place on an existing course, but you can be assessed this year for courses starting from September 2023.

You can register your interest here. Or you can contact us on 020 8659 7976 or 01689 822886 if you prefer to talk.
