Is your child studying for their GCSEs or A Levels?
Reaching their full academic potential just got easier...
YOU'RE JUST SECONDS AWAY FROM THE ESSENTIAL STUDY SKILLS, LEARNING AND SUPPORT NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE TOP GRADES - FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
If you answered ‘Yes!’ to these questions then I’ve got the solution.
My name is Lucy Parsons. When I was at school I had a dream. I wanted to study at Cambridge University. However, I went to pretty average local state schools and didn’t really know how to study. What I did have was supportive parents and the knowledge that I had to get the top grades if I was going to achieve my ambition.
Between year 11 and year 13 I worked out a study system that earned me five A grades at A Level and my place at Cambridge. After a short corporate career I trained to be a teacher and subsequently set up my study skills coaching business and published my book, The Ten Step Guide to Acing Every Exam You Ever Take.
In my experience:
An affordable online club for families to give them year-round support in helping students to reach their full potential at school and in life.
This club is for both parents and students. Why have I decided to create the club like this?
Because nearly every time I’ve started working with a student on a 1:1 basis I’ve also spent quite a lot of time with the parents, helping them to understand how they can best support their child. After all, you’re the ones jollying them along week-by-week, day-by-day and hour-by-hour, so you really need to know what you’re talking about!
When I ran my signature study skills course, The Exam Success Formula, twice in the 2017-18 academic year, I saw how powerful the format of working with parents and students simultaneously was.
Parents stopped nagging, students started studying and phenomenal exam results followed.
The only thing that was missing from The Exam Success Formula was year-round support from me.
So, I’ve taken the nine core topics of The Exam Success Formula that cover the motivation and study skills students need, as well as the complementary advice for parents on how to support their child with each component of the course and put all this inside The Extraordinaries Club and made it available to you at an affordable price. Alongside these nine core modules you will also get:
Our son was drifting towards his GCSEs with little enthusiasm but after doing the course, he is more motivated, more organised and has the tools to lead him to success. Lucy’s course is amazing and we would recommend it wholeheartedly. Above all, it has been fun to take part and we are a happier family because of it.
The launch price for The Extraordinaries Club is £299 for annual family membership or £32.50 for monthly family membership.
The price will increase on 20th September 2018 at 9pm to £350 for annual family membership or £35.00 for monthly family membership
My son has just received his GCSE results and he’s absolutely delighted. So much of what he learnt from Lucy has helped and in no small part of what I learnt from Lucy helped me support him (particularly not to nag!). Not too late, he realised that if he put the right effort in, in the right way then he’d maximise his time and get the results. Next steps A levels – the Lucy way!
These are the nine modules of The Exam Success Formula.
The course will be taught 'live' starting in September and January but you will be able to access the modules, or start the course at any time.
N.B. For the September 2018 run of the course the modules will be released one per week but you will be able to access them at any time after that.
Getting organised is the foundation for efficient and effective studying. This week students will set up organisational systems for their time and resources.
One of the most common complaints I hear from students is that they 'just can't get motivated to study'. In this module we will tackle this issue head on.
Time is the most important resource that any of us have at our disposal. If we waste time, it's gone forever. In this week we will think in detail about how to make best use of time to have a life balanced between study, social life and hobbies.
Consistency is the basis for any great achievement, whether that's training for the Olympics or getting excellent grades in your exams. This week we will identify the good habits that will support your child to exam success and start putting them into practice.
Having a positive attitude towards studying, and understanding that you only achieve great success when you continue to apply yourself when the going gets tough, is vital. This is what we'll cover this week.
Great students don't walk out of each lesson thinking, 'Tick, I've done that topic now.' They recognise there is greater depth, breadth and context for them to understand. This week we'll explore how to incorporate the thirst for knowledge into daily, weekly, termly and even yearly life.
All successful revision starts with a solid plan. This week you will discover how to create a flexible, personalised revision plan that will continuously serve your child rather than stressing them out!
Once a plan is in place revision needs to get done. We will talk about how to actually do revision in a sustainable way and how to avoid the pitfalls of procrastination so that progress is always being made.
This week we will cover how to behave and prepare in the last days and hours before an exam. We will also talk about how to cope with two exams in one day, how to cope with a bad exam and how to review exam season once it's all over.
Learning with Lucy has been such an informative and motivating experience. The biggest benefit for us was the neutral part she played when posing all the questions and initiating the discussions. The weekly content was in concise chunks, so no module was overwhelming and they all led to the most efficient way to plan and revise. There was a lot of scope for your child to personalise their journey and suit their individual learning styles. At every opportunity Lucy was encouraging each child to take the lead in their own life. She is so passionate about their success. I highly recommend this course.
Lucy went above and way beyond our expectations during the course and set my son on the correct path for a fulfilling future. The psychological aspects have helped enormously with goal setting, removing resistance and helping him to realise he needs to be organised with his time and has improved his focus. Lucy equipped me not only with tools to help him, but enabled me to enhance our relationship through the whole process with the communication tips. One of the best investments I've ever made. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
How does the club work?
Start with The Exam Success Formula
The Exam Success Formula has been carefully designed to teach you and your child everything you need to know for exam success in a logical order that builds on itself. The first thing you do when you join The Extraordinaries Club should be to work through The Exam Success Formula. You can start at any time, but the course will be taught 'live' with the focus of each week's coaching calls being that week's topic starting in September and January.
Come along to the weekly coaching call for more advice and support
During term time there will be weekly coaching calls - alternately just for students and just for parents. This is your chance to come along, ask my advice and be coached by me.
Outside the times when I'm teaching The Exam Success Formula live some coaching calls will be switched for a masterclass that will help significant numbers of the community.
Make full use of the live workshops and masterclasses
My live workshops and masterclasses on topics such as revision planning and exam technique are designed to be practical learning sessions. There are recordings of these classes inside the club for you to watch on demand, but turning up live and asking your questions is the best way to get the most value.
I will be adding to the range of live and recorded workshops and masterclasses inside the club as time goes on - the topics I cover will be driven by the needs of the members.
Access the content library
The club contains a content library of workshops, masterclasses, webinars and downloads for you to access on demand as well as the modules of The Exam Success Formula (these will be added week by week as we work through the course for the first time as a community).
Get help in the community
The private, on-site, member only community is there to serve you. Ask questions, get my feedback and advice, learn from the experiences of other members and make new friends. There is a communical area of the forum for everyone, as well as parents only and students only areas so that you can ask questions 'in private'.
By joining The Extraordinaires Club, working through The Exam Success Formula and making use of all the other resources I am confident that 90% of students won't need any additional one-to-one support.
Apart from in very rare circumstances, I will be insisting that students and parents work through the materials in the club before they have any one-to-one sessions with me. I have seen that this is the way to get the best results.
The Extraordinaries Club is also the most affordable way to work with me. My one-to-one coaching packages start at £500 for a six week course.
As parents we think the course was fantastic and thought provoking. As a family we learned how to communicate better and have fewer arguments. It empowered our daughter to voluntarily revise for her exams which was unheard of before the course. Her GCSE results are proof the course works, we are delighted!
My goal with The Extraordinaries Club is to give your family a sustainable road-map that you can use to help your child to achieve the best grades possible, as well as the ongoing support you need throughout the academic year.
My advice will ensure that your family has:
And, that you, as a parent, are fully prepared to support your son or daughter every step of the way, without the nagging, melt-downs and confusion that are typical of many families in exam season. My goal is essentially to bring you and your child closer together so that you're a united team throughout the exams, and you're both stronger and happier as a result.
The Exam Success Formula helped the communication between me and my son because it gave me the opportunity to discuss issues. My son hates me checking up on homework or anything else but with Lucy’s help I have been able to point out that complete lack of communication on his part leads to anxiety on mine and we have discussed how he can let me know he is covering what's needed without me asking annoying questions!
My son's results were stunning and he is so pleased. We know your advice and guidance have set him on the right path and shown him how to tackle even harder exams in the future.
Lucy has a real gift for being able to communicate with teenagers. Like many teenagers, he does not always welcome advice from his parents but is much happier listening to suggestions from Lucy!
What's the price of not just feeling, but knowing, that you and your son or daughter are confident and in control in revision and exam season?
Having seen the stress, doubt and fear that many people encounter when faced with exams, I know I wouldn't want to be in their position.
I never felt like that. I always felt calm and confident when I went into exams, and my clients feel the same. This is all down to the right kind of preparation. You can have this, and the future prospects that great grades open up, when you join The Extraordinaries Club.
Lucy provided my daughter with a really great gift for life, for she is now able to determine herself by engaging and applying her mind and heart to what she is doing. I am confident that it will last. She passed all her exams this year after struggling in previous years and is facing the future with confidence.

It's thanks to Lucy that I have managed to regain confidence in what I can achieve now and in the coming years. I now know what to do to improve my grades and I am ready to put that knowledge into practice.
The Exam Success Formula had a great impact on me. I feel more confident about how to study now and about how to prioritise. Thank you Lucy!

Working with Lucy helped my daughter gain confidence in herself and learn how to approach revision calmly and methodically. The exam results were good and Lucy’s support was invaluable.
