High-quality online teaching by the most competent of teachers
At the beginning of the lockdown due to the pandemic, all our classes 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. In addition to the fact that our lessons are taught live, most lessons are recorded and students can revisit recorded lessons for future reinforcement of knowledge and revision. There is a separate group of students that attend Saturday classes in person at our centres.
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.
Below is what one of out formal students Esma has to say:
"I was predicted a D in Maths but I managed to prove teachers at my school wrong, and, through the help I received at Excel I achieved an A*. The same goes for science: I was hopeless in school, but, thanks to Excel, I got an A."
After her GCSEs and A-levels Esma went on to study at LSE and then Cambridge University

How do the Saturday classes work for GCSE students?
GCSE & IGCSE
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 50 minutes on each subject. In addition to group teaching within the small group session, each student receives one-to-one tutorial to focus on his or her specific needs. 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 (two hours) on the sciences, but Triple Science students spend longer (three hours). Both Double and Triple Science contain Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
For most GCSE students, classes start at 9.30am and most finish between 2.30 and 3.30pm. 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.
