Mr Opesan’s passion for education stems from his natural curiosity and his insatiable appetite for learning. He trained as a secondary school Maths teacher (PGCE) after a first degree in Business Studies (Marketing) and a Masters in Mass Communications from the University of Leicester.
Having worked several jobs before joining the teaching profession, Mr Opesan took on departmental responsibility within his first year of teaching. Soon after changing his school he became the Head of Maths. Later in the same school, George Mitchell, London E11, he gained whole school responsibility as an Assistant Head teacher in charge of Assessment and Reporting. In 2007, Mr Opesan relocated to Lagos as the founding Principal of Meadow Hall College.
During his first stint at Meadow Hall, in addition to his College role, the progress of Infant School and Junior School students fell within his ambit when he was designated Education Director of Meadow Hall. Mr Opesan is a highly sought-after trainer in the field of education. He has worked with many educational consultancies, such as Meadow Hall Consult, School Run and BEC (British Education Consultants).
He has been privileged to facilitate seminars in renowned institutions such as the University of Lagos, Cambridge University, England, Abuja, Warri and Port Harcourt. Prior to returning to full-time work at Meadow Hall as the Head of School, with an oversight of the Lekki site and the new site in Ikoyi, Mr Opesan spent two years working with James Hope College, Agbor and the AISEN (Association of International School Educators of Nigeria) Head Office.
Mr Opesan is a keen sportsman, and a published author who is blessed with two wonderful children currently at university.
