Colet Mentoring Initiative.

Backed by St Paul’s and St Paul’s Girls’ School in London, the Colet Mentoring initiative is designed to provide students with free 1:1 academic support, all via our app. Launched at the height of lockdown in Summer 2020, we’ve already delivered thousands of free help sessions to students across the country. And we’re just getting started.

About Intro

Empowering top schools across the UK.


Helping students help each other.

Expert Help, On-Demand

Students receive 1:1 help right when they need it, without having to schedule sessions in advance. It’s unlimited and free, because learning shouldn’t have limits.

Peer Support

Peer Support

Core to our mission is encouraging students to support one another. All students have questions and all students have something to teach. We connect the two.



In our most recent survey, 100% of students participating in Colet Mentoring thought they benefited from the programme and over 92% of students said they would recommend the programme to a friend.

Vital to filling the gaps Covid's created

COVID has created obvious gaps, particularly with some of our disadvantaged socially and economically pupils. Using technology and collaboration with other schools, such as in the West London Partnership, is going to be vital to help fill that gap. We saw a significant impact on pupils over the summer and are delighted to be working on this partnership with St Paul’s and EasyA to help scale up the programme over the course of the academic year.

Mr Ebenezer

Head TeacherFulham Boys School

Our students have had nothing but praise!

We were delighted when our year 11 students were offered the amazing opportunity to use the Colet Mentoring app, giving them access to A-level mathematicians at Radley College, ready to help with our boys' queries on any Maths GCSE topic or question. Our students have had nothing but praise for the invaluable help received from the online mentors, and are extremely keen to continue and further develop this mutually beneficial relationship.

Our students have benefited enormously

From being part of the program; mentees have had access to regular individual online support, while mentors have gained confidence, self-esteem and greater empathy through their tutoring.

Mr Sparks

Director of PartnershipsRadley College

A significant number of our students used Colet Mentoring over summer. Many of them completed overdue tasks they felt less motivated to do during the school closures. They started the new academic year motivated and with better prior knowledge

Frequently asked questions

Who can participate in Colet Mentoring?Close FAQ

All primary and secondary schools! We actively encourage all schools to get involved, whether you’d like to enrol mentors or mentees. Because we believe all students should be able to get help or teach, we don’t place a cap on the number of mentees or mentors each school can enrol. Mentees are students in all years up to GCSE (or equivalent) including primary school students. Mentors are students in their A-level years (or equivalent), who have received at least an 8 at GCSE (or equivalent) in the relevant subject and be studying that subject for A-level (or equivalent).
