About Pimlico Connection

This peer-tutoring scheme has been running at Imperial since 1975 and sees students volunteer as tutors in local schools for approximately 17 weeks (November to March). The scheme aims to inspire students in STEM subjects, raising aspirations by providing students with positive role models for STEM subjects and higher education.

We have chosen bright and enthusiastic Imperial students to deliver a range of support for primary school pupils through to Year 12 and Year 13 students preparing to enter university.

You can request support from our voluntary Pimlico Connection tutors for your state primary or secondary school. This includes help with science and maths-based lessons, after-school clubs, or general support.

Our tutors volunteer for one to two hours, usually on a Wednesday afternoon and always within a 30-minute commute of South Kensington station. All of our student volunteers have been trained and have undergone appropriate DBS criminal record checks.
