It's a relief on my part to have someone like Michael to bolster R as he has had a confidence dip this term.
Mother of R
Cecilia very much enjoyed her time with Rory over half-term ! She always looked forward for the next visit and always came back from it very excited. I noticed overall the experience boosted her confidence and her excitement for writing. I generally loved the way the story writing has been introduced and developed within an enriching environment.

Lamorna has been fantastic. Alfie built up a great rapport with her on the Oppidan Camp this summer, and it is wonderful to see how sparky he is in her company.

Harry mentored my son in history and interview technique for scholarship examinations. My son really enjoyed the lessons that he had with him and we appreciated his friendly constructive approach which really engaged my son in the process and boosted his confidence for the interview when he really needed it . I would highly recommend him.

Engaging, calm, patient and great at explaining new concepts - Tom's your man! My son really enjoyed his sessions with Tom, who helped him achieve 100% in his ISEB prep test papers. Thank you!
Mother of 10-year-old
Henry has been an inspirational mentor to my son who is in his pre-test year. He has been positive and influential, helping him to mature in his thinking, to think outside the box and to organise his ideas in an intelligent and articulate manner.

You are truly brilliant, I can’t thank you enough. We loved having you here. I’m so pleased G opens up to you...you have a brilliant way with him and his confidence will blossom as a result of all your hard work.

Thank you very much for the brilliant guidance and support you have shown Ed over the past two years. You’ve significantly enhanced him as a candidate whatever the end result. He is not over-prepared or over-tutored but simply mentored, and now more confident in himself. He now talks freely to adults about his interests where before he may have shied away from conversation. Ed also counts his mentor as his good friend, a testament to Oppidan’s unique approach.
Mother of Ed, Year-6 student
I appreciate what Oppidan are doing treating children like young adults, stimulating their learning and having fun. His confidence, self-esteem and self-worth are through the roof. This is a godsend, thank you.
Mr Velez, father of 11-year-old boy
His enthusiasm and confidence have taken new directions since Henry began, seen clearly in the vast improvement his exam results.
Mother of Year-6 boy
You can take direct credit and huge pride in what you have done for B, not only in achieving this stellar set of results (in his words, the best he could possibly have hoped to achieve) but also in a huge course correction of his perception about what he is capable of academically. This will be life-changing for him. Thank you for your belief in B and the personal care you all put in to helping him achieve his true potential, despite the fact that the system and circumstances were not in his favour.
