313: Atom Learning with Alex Hatvany

Alex Hatvany is the co-founder of Atom Learning, the UK’s largest edtech platform for KS2 children. While working as a tutor whilst at university, Alex and his co-founder, Jake, saw how extra tuition was unregulated and often only accessible to children from higher income families. Frustrated, he and Jake resolved to build a platform to help primary school children from all backgrounds prepare for entrance exams at top-tier schools with personalised support. Using AI, Atom creates gamified exercises tailored to each child’s level and learning style and offers 90,000 teacher-written questions.

All primary schools can access Atom Prime for free and Atom’s home learning platform, Atom Nucleus, is also free for any child on free school meals or pupil premium. The platform is used across 1,400 schools in the UK and 90,000 pupils currently use Atom. Atom raised $25million from SoftBank – the largest Series A round ever secured by a UK-based edtech platform.
