School friends and Oxford graduates Harry Hortyn and Rob Phipps, both 32, founded this residential tuition business in 2010. Starting as a few lessons in Oriel College while Hortyn studied there, it now operates out of 14 Oxford colleges. The company — which also runs courses in Cambridge, London, Stanford and Bangalore — generates 90% of its revenue from overseas students. Turnover rose to £8.1m in the year to September and it hopes to boost revenue by introducing coding courses and extending its international reach.
