National 5 Maths is not only a prerequisite for Higher Maths; it has also become a very common entry requirement to an increasing number of college and university courses.  It is therefore a highly sought-after qualification for young people of school/ early college age.

Many young people currently in school or college can have difficulty adding National 5 Maths to their timetable or existing course schedule.

Saturday School is often the solution for these learners who require the qualification yet do not have the option of adding it to their existing weekday commitments.  Completing the National 5 Maths Qualification at Saturday School allows young people to gain the award with no impact on their weekly studies.  Classes are run on a part-time weekend basis on Saturday mornings.

Teachers who deliver this class are full time, fully qualified GTCS registered teachers who are currently delivering the N5 Maths course in Scottish schools or colleges.  The courses fee covers all taught classes, learning materials, textbooks, stationery, snacks and refreshments.  We also complete your registration with SQA for the all-important final exam.  

Typical entrants to this course are often:

  • Prospective entrants into further or higher education courses

  • Looking to enhance their career prospects

  • Keen to enhance their qualifications and UCAS application

  • Prospective entrants into primary teaching (PGDE Primary)

  • Prospective entrants into secondary teaching (PGDE Secondary)

  • Looking to enter HNC, HND or degree courses

  • Applicants for nursing or midwifery courses
