University of Liverpool Maths School for sixth formers

Developing promising young mathematicians from across the Liverpool City Region

The University of Liverpool Maths School is unique in the North West of England as it is the only school to specialise in delivering a stimulating academic curriculum focused around A Levels in Maths, Further Maths, Computer Science and Physics.

Founded by, and drawing upon the expertise of the University of Liverpool, the School offers A Level students the opportunity to take their studies to the next level, with masterclasses from leading lecturers, support from PhD and undergraduate students, plus exciting research projects and careers guidance.

The first cohort of students, recruited from across the Liverpool City Region, joined in 2020, becoming part of a supportive learning community designed to enable talented young people to thrive and reach their full potential.

For more information on the curriculum, forthcoming open days and free evening classes for secondary school students, visit the School website.

There are two things we hope to achieve as a School. We want to create a fantastic learning community, made up of talented teachers working with gifted students that have a passion for learning. We want these students to be themselves, to achieve their potential and go on to study amazing STEM degrees and have successful careers.

The other aim to grow our community beyond the walls of our School and raise attainment across the region by reaching and supporting those students that could excel in STEM if given the opportunity. The University and its partners are already doing so much to support and nurture interest in STEM subjects locally, through widening participation programmes and outreach activities led by the Maths and Physics Departments. We want to continue to work in harmony with these groups to improve access and attainment within the Liverpool City Region.
