As the new 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, a colleague or just as a friend.
We are looking forward with great excitement to welcoming our first cohort of students in September 2020. We expect that cohort to be made up of a very wide variety of interesting young people: there will be many different backgrounds, different outlooks and different ambitions. One thing they will all have in common will be their sense of curiosity and adventure around mathematics.
We’re also looking forward to the great things that our students are going to achieve. We know we’re going to be in great company looking at the achievements of our fellow mathematics schools in London and Exeter. We’ll be providing expert support to prepare our students to apply for places on challenging degree courses in subjects like mathematics, computer science and physics at the best universities in the world. As soon as our students join us we’ll be expecting them to join in with solving challenging problems and learning to think in rigorous, mathematical ways so that they find it natural and enjoyable to tackle the hardest mathematical and scientific questions as their skills and knowledge grow.
We don’t see our students’ achievements ending there though; although our formal curriculum is focused on mathematics, computing and physics we will also be making extra-curricular provision for students with particular talents in music, sport and many other areas through the connections we have with University of Liverpool and other educational provision in the city.
The University of Liverpool Mathematics School is going to provide a very special educational experience for its students.
If you are currently studying GCSE mathematics, you may not yet realise how enjoyable maths can be, and our school is probably very different to your current School. We have a section of our site intended to help you learn more about mathematics and work out whether this might be a school that you, or your child, would thrive in.
