Entrepreneur of the Year!

Postby Jess from Mentor Education » Fri Mar 22, 2024 4:08 pm

Some personal news from all of us at Mentor Education. Our founder and CEO, Mary Lonsdale, recently won "Entrepreneur of the Year" at Wandsworth Council's Women Enterprise Award. We are delighted for her and for all the other winners.

Our business has grown over the last few years from Mentor Education (which itself won "Tuition Agency of the Year" last year at the industry awards) with the acquisition of the leading Oxbridge Entrance specialist advisory service, Varsity Scholars, and founding our own charity, The Afghan College for Girls, which now educates hundreds of girls each week in Afghanistan under the noses of the Taliban. 

However, at its heart we are still a local business, helping and supporting local families with their exams so thank you to all the parents who have entrusted their children to us for their 4 Plus, 7 Plus, 11 Plus and 13 Plus journeys as well as those whom we have helped with their GCSE and A Levels. Mary wrote the best selling book "How to Pass the 11 Plus" and we run tuition programmes, academic assessments, weekend courses, interview preparation and have trusted partnerships with local independent school. Tomorrow our courses and centres will be running as normal, helping around 200 with their exams but tonight we will be celebrating this win!
