English term or phrase: Oppidan
Chodzi o studentów Eton College. Czy istnieje jakas spolszczona nazwa?

Today, 70 King’s scholars are awarded means tested scholarships to Eton after a rigorous academic entrance exam, and an additional one thousand two hundred and thirty fee paying students are admitted.
These boys have been known as Oppidans since the fifteenth century.

Explanation:
IMHO należy zostawić oryginał i wyjaśnić w nawiasie, co to określenie oznacza.

W innym kontekście "oppidans" to po prostu mieszczanie. Sporadycznie spotyka się spolszczenie "opidani".
