About Us...

Justin Craig, and the concept of group revision courses, was established in 1981 by Marilyn Craig. Having initially offered private 1:1 tuition from her home, recommendations grew to the extent that she started to receive interest from groups of school friends. This was so successful that requests from parents 'at the school gates' continued to grow for small group tuition in a variety of subjects.

Tens of thousands of students have since attended Justin Craig Revision Courses in order to prepare for, and maximise, their performance in their GCSE and A Level exams.

Our Approach
Justin Craig is committed to delivering the highest quality revision courses for all students. We seek to maintain our position as the UK market leader by continually reviewing and improving our services to reflect both customer needs and educational reforms.

Our approach is unique in a number of ways, in that we:
- Adopt a highly tailored approach to course content to ensure individual student needs are met, by engaging students prior to their course, and by guaranteeing small class sizes (the average class size is 6).
- Provide high quality teaching by only employing full qualified, experienced tutors who can combine expert subject knowledge with excellent communication skills.
- Provide a good range of revision centres, in terms of type (i.e. day / residential) and geographical location, all of which are easily accessible by car or public transport.
- Offer courses at key times throughout the academic year, giving flexibility over the timing and/or number of revision courses for students to attend.
- Adopt a customer focused approach to courses - if we don't appear to offer the subject you are looking for at the time and centre that suits you, we will do our best to either set up a new course or find another option that works for you.

How Our Courses Work

Our top priority is ensuring students receive high quality tuition, which meets their individual needs. Unlike other companies providing revision courses, we do not follow a standard structure and each course is bespoke to the students attending that course. By requesting information in advance of the course on the topics and skills that students wish to cover, our tutors are able to structure the course around their needs and optimise the student's revision time.

Duration and Content of our Courses

All our courses, with the exception of May Day Weekend and Pre Exam courses are now 4 days to ensure students are fully prepared for the challenges and greater rigour of GCSEs and A Levels following the 2015 education reforms.

All Justin Craig courses will involve:

Tuition from experienced, fully qualified subject experts
Teaching and practice of exam technique
Stimulating and inclusive study environment, free from distractions
A variety of engaging learning and memory techniques
Focused revision on the most common exam topics
Students attending multiple courses may notice a difference in approach depending on the subject/level. This is due, in part, to the nature of the subject but also reflects the recent educational reforms. For example:

Maths: With the increase in content volume and complexity plus greater emphasis on problem-solving and mathematical reasoning, our courses cover all the areas which students find challenging, especially algebra, with particular emphasis given to the transference of these skills to questions asked in unfamiliar contexts. The more rigorous approach needed for students to secure the highest grades is fundamental to our courses.

Science: As a result of key changes arising from the educational reforms for both GCSE and A level students (eg increased maths content, "harder" GCSE content and, for A level, greater emphasis on "levelled questions" and inclusion of practical questions in formal examinations), our student led courses boost content and exam technique expertise, including areas that students frequently find challenging (eg extended practical response questions) together with a clear and detailed breakdown of every topic.

English: Due to the broad range of texts covered and the changing demands arising from the educational reforms, our English courses focus on the key skills, techniques and information required to optimise exam performance. For example, in the new curriculum skills relating to inference, deduction and fluent writing using evidence from the texts has become much more important.

History: With an even broader time period being covered by students and a greater emphasis on exams rather than coursework, the importance of key skills and techniques is now even more important. Our history courses are structured with this in mind. In addition to essay planning, writing and presentation skills, our courses also include elements on the evaluation of sources and evaluation of historians' interpretations to help with the increased demands of the new curriculum.
