We are pleased to award a grant of nearly £20,000 to St Paul’s School for their Colet Mentoring programme. A mobile app enables students (mentees) to connect with secondary school student-tutors (mentors) within the local and wider community of schools, creating a network of free academic support, available to students right when they need it.

Our grant will be used towards expanding the programme to UK primary schools, and will also fund stage 1 of the ongoing pilot in Juba, Republic of South Sudan. We would like to wish St Paul’s School every success with Colet Mentoring, and we hope both the mentors and mentees benefit from taking part in this pioneering programme.
