Our Founder’s Story

Kate Shand opened Enjoy Education’s doors in 2006 with a mission to deliver transformational learning for every student.

Kate passionately believes in the power of bespoke, one-to-one education to transform lives.  As a teenager, Kate herself had to take three years out of her education due to illness, during which she received transformational tutoring support.  

Having graduated from the University of Oxford, she founded Enjoy Education, determined to bring the power of bespoke learning to others. In the 20 years since, the team at Enjoy Education has supported thousands of students to achieve their goals, from nursery through to undergraduate level, and from entrance exam tuition to bespoke home-schooling programmes.  

As a parent herself, Kate knows how daunting the education landscape can be for parents, from picking the right school through to the 11+, GCSEs, A Levels, IB, University Applications and beyond. This is why Enjoy Education is unique in the market, by partnering with families to support their children’s entire education journey, enabling students to thrive as happy, confident learners.
