extra-curricular concierge

Exploring opportunities outside the curriculum, whether academic, intellectual or merely for leisure, is fundamental to u2's ethos.

Our understanding of the term 'tuition' encompasses both academic and cultural tuition - u2 mentors can accompany students on visits to museums, lectures and book workshops. We have mentors in place to teach language masterclasses in over 8 languages including Arabic and Mandarin, coding geniuses able to guide a student through the digital world, fine artists, drama tutors and sports coaches who have performed at both National and International levels.

Coding, digital learning...

Did you know that one of u2's mentors invented an app called Summly, an automatic summarisation algorithm, aged just 17, which was sold to Yahoo for US$30 million, making him one of the youngest self-made millionaires? He studied Computer Science and Philosophy at Oxford and has published three papers in Philosophy thus far. Get an insight into the world of coding and algorithms with a u2 Computer Science mentor.


Work Experience

Many schools require students undertake work experience in the Summer of their GCSE year and beyond. Our mentors have a range of professional experience in careers ranging from digital marketing, advertising and FinTech to investment banking, consulting and accountancy, at leading UK firms. As well as offering an insight into a wide range of career fields, there is the possibility for mentors to propose students for work experience to firms they have previously worked at.
