Michael transitioning to Senior School

Challenge: Michael came from a London prep school and was in his second year at Eton. He had excelled at his previous school but found integrating difficult into a bigger year group; he was falling out with his teachers and taking on adolescent badly

Solution: His parents came to Oppidan and we organised for a mentor to see Michael twice a term to go through his school work, set targets and keep him on track.

Result: Michael’s independence at school grew and, because he was accountable to somebody outside his family, kept to his targets and saw a dramatic improvement.
