A Boost in your child’s GCSE and A-level Exam Grades with a blend of small-group and one-to-one tuition that works

We are all about High Aspiration

We support parents with aspirations for their teenagers – those who want to gain admission to top universities. We help to improve Exam Grades in Core Academic subjects at GCSE and A-level. On average, our students are performing at around a B grade in school before they join us; within a year, they improve by about two grade points. Our main programmes are: Saturday School during term time and Intensive Revision during school holidays. We also have flexible unit-based learning and the premium Consultation Tuition (one-to-one by a top consultant teacher). Originally, our centres were at: Holland Park, Trinity School in Croydon, Greenwich and Birkbeck/UCL in Euston*. We have temporarily moved online.

We cover the core academic subjects of Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and English at both GCSE and A-level. In addition to all the above, we also provide for Further Maths, Economics, History and Psychology at A-level. At GCSE, we cover Further Maths and all the science options – Triple and Combined (double or trilogy) Our teachers are of the highest quality and we have a proven track record for over 16 years.

The Benefits

There are four aspects that make our courses effective:

a.    A blend of both very small group teaching and also one-to-one tutorial

b.    With most of the teaching online these days, we do not lose sight of the fact that exams are still written on paper – with a pen. We factor this in by ensuring that we set work and expect a written response

c.    Teachers mark the work and use the one-to-one tutorial sessions to address individual student’s needs and to provide meaningful feedback on the assignment set -

d.    We have top quality teachers with a proven track record in nurturing teenagers to success by helping them to achieve top exam grades

Your child achieving his or her full potential in English, Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology just got easier with our online Saturday School, which runs throughout the academic year. Here is what you can expect from us:

  • Small-group tuition and one-to-one tutorial

  • Regular and meaningful feedback on your child’s progress

  • Improvementin your child’s confidence and performance in school and, consequently, exam grades

Here at Excel in Key Subjects our aim is to help your child reach their full potential in all of the key academic subjects that they currently study. Most of our students are ambitious and they are aiming for top universities – the Russell Group.
We recognise the challenges facing young people in school today and understand the pressures they are under. The Coronavirus pandemic has made matters worse for so many students. Whilst a number of schools did their best under the circumstances they found themselves, too many schools provided sub-standard quality of education during the first lockdown – with between five to six months of poor or near-zero teaching. Consequently, there has been a substantial loss of teaching and learning time and many young people struggle to catch up.

We support teenagers by offering very small class sizes together with one-to-one tutorials at both GCSE and A-level. With the teaching and guidance of our highly qualified dedicated teachers, as well as boosting confidence, we also improve grades. We bring out each child's full potential and equip them to achieve success. Our long-established Saturday School used to run from a few locations across London. We now provide lessons online – via live video teaching on Zoom and Microsoft Teams. The blend of small groups (about four to five students on average), and one-to-one tutorials make our classes effective.

Your child will achieve the grades we predict, or we will give you a full refund of your tuition fees in those subjects.

That’s how confident we are of our proven system.

How Does Our Saturday School work Online?

Saturday School runs on a specified number of Saturdays, during term time and spread through the academic year. There is a total of 26 Saturdays. The structure depends on whether your child is attending for help with KS3, GCSE or A level.

KS3 and GCSE (Online Lessons)

Every Saturday, students in small group, set according to year group and ability, will receive:

  • Teaching session 1 – This consists of 45 minutes of small group teaching (usually 4 to 5 students – a maximum of 9)
  • Assignment set in terms of exam questions – including Milestone work, which is marked, with feedback provided
  • Teaching session 2 – This consists of about 10 minutes of one-to-one tutorial – dedicated to addressing individual student's weaknesses

All classes take place via Zoom or Skype and are recorded for safeguarding and for access for reuse by the student.

Most GCSE and KS3 students take four lessons on Saturdays – spending about 4 to 5 hours with us to study English, Maths and two or three science subjects. However, students can opt to do just 1 or 2 subjects. There are separate classes for each year group. The average class size at GCSE and KS3 is between five and six students per class.

Each child will receive both a small group teaching and also one-to-one tutorial in each subject they are studying with us, as described above.

Classes are usually held from 9am to about 3.30pm.

Our grade guarantee applies to students who study for the whole academic year in Y11 and the whole two years at A-level.

A-level: AS & A2 (Online Lessons)

  • Teaching session 1 – This consists of 60 minutes of small group teaching (usually 2 to 3 students – a maximum of 6)
  • Assignment set in terms of exam questions – including Milestone work, which is marked, with written feedback provided
  • Teaching session 2 – This consists of 20 minutes of one-to-one tutorial – dedicated to addressing individual student's weaknesses

Most A-level students take two lessons on Saturdays – spending about 2.5 to 3 hours with us to study. Popular combinations are Chemistry and Biology, but Maths and Physics are also common. The subjects we provide at A-level programme are Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English, History, Psychology and Economics.

There are separate classes for each year group, as AS students are taught in different groups from A2 students in each subject. The average class size at A-level is about 3 to 4 students per class. Each student will receive both a small group teaching and also one-to-one tutorial (two separate sessions) in each subject they are studying with us, as described above.

Most A-level (AS or A2) classes start in late morning, with some scheduled for the afternoon that do not finish until about 6pm or a little later. Please ask for the timetable

The main exam boards we cover are Edexcel, AQA and OCR and tuition is tailored to the exam board of each student.
