"Oppidan's mentoring ethos offers the variety and breadth of education that all schools and parents should aspire to."
Eton College Headmaster, 2002-2015
“Oppidan Education has a completely fresh approach to other players in the market. They ‘mentor the individual’ rather than ‘tutor the child’ which brings much more than just the exam results. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

"A great few days at Oppidan Camp for Year 5! Amazing team leaders, beautifully organised, delicious food and very well judged activities."
Headmistress of Falkner House School
Oppidan Education was set up in 2016 with a clear purpose. Our aim has been to change expectations: expectation as to the merit of one-on-one support and expectation among children as to the value of their education. The narrative is clear: if children are able to invest in the idea of learning, there is no limit to what they can achieve.
We offer a fresh approach to one-on-one support through the concept of mentoring. Self-worth, confidence and adaptability form the core objectives behind an ethos that goes beyond the prescriptive confines of exam preparation. Our mentors use their energy and enthusiasm to encourage children to realise their potential, to instil humble curiosity in their studies and to help foster independence in their work. This philosophy is reflected through Oppidan Camps, our summer camps for prep-school-aged children that aim to prepare them for life both inside and outside the classroom.
We believe wholeheartedly in the role of a mentor in a child’s development. Our philosophy, both within the scope of mentoring and our summer camps, continues to help children engage with the challenges ahead of them. Having people who make it their priority to nurture children and keep them grounded is of huge value in an increasingly uncertain world for the younger generation.
