Periplus Home Education Brand

For our company name we chose to opt for a Greek word in order to draw a parallel to one of the most ancient, classical and successful systems of education.

Periplus is the Latinisation of a Greek word περίπλους literally meaning “a sailing-around”. A periplus was a manuscript document (or type of log) that listed all the ports and coastal landmarks that a vessel could expect to encounter along a shoreline.

We have used the word as a metaphor for education – as you take to the uncharted waters of education we will provide you with all the necessary signposting required in order to lead you safely through.
