"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.”
Anya Hindmarch OBE
Fashion Entrepreneur & Oppidan Parent
"Children mentored through Oppidan feel empowered, confident and the best version of themselves.”
Caldicott School Headmaster
Oppidan Education was founded in early 2016 to support schools, parents and children through one-on-one mentoring programmes. Frustrated by shortcomings in the tuition sector, Oppidan was set up to tackle the pressurised, anxiety-driven education market in the U.K. The result has been the creation of mentoring in education as the new and improved form of one-on-one support for children.
Oppidan’s narrative remains clear: to change expectation as to the merit of one-on-one support both in and outside of schools. Self-worth, confidence and inner motivation form our core objectives behind an ethos beyond the prescriptive confines of exam preparation. Our programmes help children change the capabilities, attitudes and beliefs they have about themselves and their education.
WHAT WE DO
Oppidan Education has pioneered the concept of mentoring in place of tutoring as the new, improved form of one-on-one academic and pastoral support for children. Our team of mentors provide mentoring programmes to families in person and online, in the UK and abroad.
Oppidan Education specialises in preparing students for the 11+ pre-tests and interviews. With over 10,000 hours of experience with children this age, our mentoring philosophy provides the right degree of support to help your child look forward to the 11+ pre-test process.
Oppidan Education works with children and parents to provide educational advice, from school applications through to university entrance. We advise families by working together with schools when required to help parents manage the process for their children.
With senior schools placing increasing on the interviews and children's prosocial skills, Oppidan's mentoring support has allowed schools to successfully outsource their interview preparation. Oppidan currently works with over 20 schools across the UK.
