    Have you thought about maybe trying an adult education college? I did a few extra bits of qualifications there when I was 16-17 and the style of learning is really different to school, it might suit you more because it's more laid back and you obviously get treated like an adult! They do maths and english courses (other than GCSE) which are often free and could really improve your chances of getting a job or apprenticeship.
