'Nonny has exceptional experience and expertise in this area. I would heartily recommend her to anyone.'

Oenone (Nonny) is a highly experienced teacher, writer and careers consultant who has spent many years coaching and advising students on all aspects of school and university, from how to organise revision to how to write the perfect personal statement. She has five children of her own, three of whom have gone to Cambridge, one to King's College London, and the fifth to Oxford. All five won music scholarships to prestigious independent schools followed by choral scholarships at university.

After winning an Academic Exhibition to St Paul’s Girls’ School, Oenone read English and Classics at Cambridge. She then worked in television as a reporter/presenter, while also writing for many magazines and newspapers and contributing to BBC Radio. After several years teaching at St Mary's School Calne, she now works independently, supporting both parents and students with any educational or academic issue. Oxbridge is a speciality, particularly guidance with extra reading, entrance tests and preparation for interview, and Oenone has a track record of helping students achieve entry into the university/college of their choice.


Hi Nonny, Charlie was really pleased to open the post this morning and find an offer from St John's, Oxford to read History with and AAA offer. He is beyond thrilled! I really feel that the advice that you gave on joint schools and the boost that he had from his visit to you played a big part in all this, so thank you again!

I heard about Nonny through a friend and went to her for help with my personal statement. I was so impressed with the resulting personal statement (as were the universities I applied to) that when I decided to apply for a different subject the next year I flew all the way to England from Germany just to spend the morning working on my personal statement with Nonny, which proved more than worth the trip! I highly recommend Nonny's help with personal statements!

Nonny asked Grace to submit a rough draft of her PS by email, which was followed up with a visit about a week later. Nonny talked to Grace, found out about her relevant experience and was able to guide her to writing her personal statement, targeted at what the universities are actually looking for. Despite quite ordinary exam results, Grace got 5 offers from 5 Russell Group universities and was able to defer her place. We know from experience how important the personal statement is in a successful UCAS application, and Nonny has exceptional experience and expertise in this area. I would heartily recommend her to anyone.
