Below are the key benefits of this book:

  • A great insight into the British secondary education system, including both written and unwritten rules, that, if parents are aware of, will help them in ensuring their teenager gets the best out of the education system
  • A frank assessment – including facts and opinions of the state of education, which can act as a short cut and save parents many hours of valuable time as they look for guidance on navigating their way through the already complex web and constantly changing GCSE and A-level curriculum
  • This book not only highlights the excellence that exists in secondary education in England, but it also sheds light on the not-so-good aspects
  • This book is not only good for a parent with a child in secondary school, it is also recommended to parents of children who are still in primary school, so they can see what lies ahead for their children at the next critical age of their education
  • This book is a must read for a parent who has high aspiration for their teenagers and who wants to help their child to have a competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive world.

Could anything be more apparent than the failings of our public educational institutions? Even at their best they barely manage to cultivate the unique proclivities of the individual; teach financial literacy and critical thinking skills; make technology our slave instead of our master; competently handle crises like pandemics. What is a parent to do? Here Idris Musty challenges you with questions not only for yourself but your children – and a method for the questioning itself. This book will engage you in a thoughtful exploration of options most would otherwise never consider.

I was lucky enough to speak at one of Idris’s events and was very impressed by his passion and commitment to giving the best possible start to young people, many of whom have been let down by the education system.

His many testimonials demonstrate the fine work he does, and I wish him every success with his book Get the Grade

High-quality online teaching by the most competent of teachers

Since the beginning of the lockdown due to the pandemic, all our classes have moved online, using mainly Zoom and Microsoft Teams. The fact that lessons are now online is reflected in the lower fees that we now have, in comparison to in-premises teaching.

Our purpose-We support aspirational parents and their teenagers to boost performance and fulfil their academic potential. We are all about helping to make dreams a reality and we are very proud of our record of achievement since 2004.

How do the Saturday classes work for GCSE students?

Saturday School runs through the academic year - a total of 26 Saturdays from September to May.

Every Saturday, students in small groups of about five spend 40 to 50 minutes on each subject. In addition to the small group session, each student also receives 10 to 15 minutes of one-to-one tutorial on each subject every week. GCSE students who take all the five subjects spend roughly about 5 hours in total each Saturday. Some take just two or three subjects, spending less time studying on a Saturday.

Those who are taking Combined (Double) Science spend less time on the sciences, but Triple Science students spend longer. Both Double and Triple Science contain Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

For most GCSE students, classes start between 9 and 10am and most finish between 2.30 and 3.30pm. Some lessons are scheduled for the afternoon and those finish at about 6pm. It is just like a typical school timetable, with students studying one subject after the other, with a short break between each subject. The only exception is that students are in very small groups and they also receive one-to-one tutorial in addition.

Our grade guarantee applies to GCSE students who enrol for the full academic year (26 Saturdays). Please see terms and conditions for the grade guarantee.

In addition to the Saturday classes, Excel in Key Subjects also offers Intensive Revision courses during Christmas, Half Term, Easter and Summer holidays, as well as one-to-one tuition. All lessons are now taught by a live video call via Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
