As the headteacher of the University of Liverpool Mathematics School I’d like to offer you a very warm welcome to the school, and encourage you to get involved with us either as a student, through our outreach programme, as a colleague or trustee, or just as a friend.
Being headteacher of the University of Liverpool Mathematics School is a huge pleasure and privilege for me. I have the very good fortune to work with some of the nicest and most committed students and staff that I have ever met. Every day in school seems to involve something new and fun, whether it’s students and staff working together to solve a mathematical problem we have never seen before, an inspiring visiting speaker or a great idea from a student about how to make the school even better than it was before. This school is a remarkable place, being a powerful mixture of of a tolerant and caring community with the challenge and excitement of mathematical and scientific problems and research. Students here are given a great deal of respect, trust and support and they respond to that by working hard, taking on the many challenges we offer them and taking pride in their schools. When I walk around school switching off lights at the end of the day I see the interesting maths, science and coding problems they have worked on together on the whiteboards in their study rooms, and I also see the care they take of the kitchens and computers other facilities we trust them with. We’re growing rapidly at the moment and looking forward to welcoming a large new cohort of Year 12 students in September before, hopefully, moving to our new permanent home nearby during the next academic year.
