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, 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.

Our grade guarantee applies for students who study for the full two-year course at A-level.

Excel in Key Subjects also offers school holiday intensive revision courses such as Half-Term, Christmas Intensive Revision, Easter Intensive Revision, Summer Booster as well as One-to-One Tuition.
