Why are his grades dropping?

Has your teen ever done the same amount of work,
produced the same quality of work,
only to get a worse result?

Updates and News for 2021

It’s finally time for me to reveal four
(okay, five) ?
important updates that have been going on behind the scenes over the summer.
Here’s what’s in store for you and your teen!

This year for me, is gonna be all about giving my best ever training, outstanding levels of service and exceeding every student and parent’s expectations.I hope that I’ve done a lot of that already over the years, but we’ve made some significant upgrades and updates that’ll go even further to helping your teen achieve their best ever grades and confidence.

There are 4 important updates I want to tell you about personally. ONE –
is the 10 Week Grade Transformation Program-  the 10WGT.

Over the summer we’ve added upgrades from requests we’ve had, like subtitles on the training videos – the addition of closed captions means your teen now has an additional way to engage with the tutorials by reading as well as listening to my training.

Plus there are added ways to ensure students really get the most out of everything they have access to- like the start-up treasure hunt as a fun and fast way to get started,
direct links to related resources in the Study Vault (my separate mega resource library that all 10WGT students get access to) for deeper-dive training on specific skills or techniques.


This makes the 10WGT the best yet and of course, we STILL have my famous – double whammy guarantee.

Students are literally GUARANTEED success.
That’s how much I know this training works.

Update number TWO –
This is important for everyone to be aware of:
Instead of 10WGT enrolment being open all year round on the website, we are limiting enrolment to 4 strict enrolment times through the year.
I’ve selected the times that I’ve come to know from experience are the most effective for students.

Our first enrolment for 2021 will start on the evening of Tuesday 2nd Feb and enrolment will be open for one week.
So, mark your calendars if you’re keen to get your teen on board!
And if you’ve been considering it or wondering about it, then pay attention in a couple of weeks because I’ll be delivering free trainings, open Q&A and I’ll be giving plenty of information about the 10WGT and the special bonuses I’m also including.

Bonuses like – The Exam Mastery Workshop! Now included with all 10 Week Grade Transformation enrolments – awesome!


What that does mean though, is that the Exam Mastery Workshop and my other mini-training ‘Write Like an A-Grader’ are not available on their own. So I just want you to be aware of that.

Now, why have I made this change to the enrolment opening?
i.e. Only having specific open times for enrolment and not leaving it open for everyone at any time.

It’s so that you and your teen get the very best of me and our team of admin support and study coaches. It means I can best help those students during their time in the program and can best serve all parents and students not in the program at other times.

This ultimately means even more valuable free stuff from me AND even more coaching and training inside of my programs.

Keeping things restrained in this way means I can massively overdeliver (like including the Exam Mastery Workshop for every enrollee) 😉

Update THREE –
I am now – officially – Katie Jones, not good old Katie Price.

I actually got married two and a half years ago (which has absolutely flown by) but it has taken me all this time to gradually change all my name across everything!
Seriously, name changes are a nightmare, especially when it was a sneaky but super-awesome, low key elopement (which I TOTally recommend by the way! It was zero stress and beautiful) – but it took a while to process the overseas paperwork
– (though not 2 years admittedly) –
by which time, I’d kind of just got on with life without the name change.

Anyway – here we are… e.v.e.n.t.u.a.l.l.y.

Katie Jones – Known for being organised and on top of things in life, except my own name.
Which means no more katie.price@rocksolidstudy email…
which leads me nicely to our fourth update:

We have upgraded all of our online systems – our website, our email, the blog.

You’ll see the changes appear over the next week or two.
Some will be obvious. Some won’t look any different but how things operate will be smoother.

The new, beautiful and super user-friendly website will be up in a couple of weeks at:

And our email address is:
You can get admin support, questions answered, requests – everything at that one email address!

Oh – that reminds me!
(This can be the BONUS Final-final upgrade for today) 😉

Update number FIVE!

(And this is one of my favourites!)

As a special Term 1 boost, I’ll be taking and answering YOUR questions every week.
This is one of the new additions I’m loving the most!

Anything you’ve been wondering or would just like to ask, you can do so by emailing them to…
can you guess?…

I know that a lot of parents and students have a lot of questions at this time of year, and I want to give you and your teen as much support as I can.

Now, although I won’t be able to answer every single question, I’ll get to as many as possible, and I’ll pick out some of the most useful and most common, and will answer them with plenty of solutions, tips and tricks here in each of my weekly Sunday blog videos.

There’s no limit on how many questions you can send in so no matter how specific or how random your Q, go ahead and ask me!
Knowing what questions you have will also help me to plan and produce the most helpful future webinars and masterclasses for you 🙂

So – Not 4 but 5 new things – all making everything more streamlined and valuable, whether you’re a member, or on my VIP email list.

Quick summary!…

ONE – Upgrades and additions to the 10WGT to help students get the absolute most out of everything in the easiest ways possible.

TWO – Limited enrolment – only opening 4 times a year – first enrolment will be 2nd to the 8th Feb – with a huge week of free tips, a live masterclass, What Would Katie Say Q&A, enrolment bonuses and lots more. Put it in your diary – 2nd Feb.

THREE – New belated surname
Goodbye Katie Price. Hello Katie JONES.

FOUR – New website (coming soon to a screen near you!) and new email address you can use right away:

FIVE – Ask me anything you want throughout Term 1! Any questions from you or your teen, send them in:
I’ll be answering them in my weekly blog videos.

Can’t wait to see the impact of all these upgrades on your teen.
I’ll keep you posted on everything and see you back here next week!
