Who we are

A sixth form community where talented mathematicians can excel. Based close to Cardinal Newman College in Preston, we will provide an intellectually stimulating and challenging curriculum along with high-quality resources for 16-19 year olds who love maths.

As part of the Rigby Education Trust, with Lancaster University and Cardinal Newman College, you will receive exceptional teaching, first-class facilities, and a high-quality enrichment programme that encourages the practical application of maths and brings in industry experts to the classroom.

More than maths

All students study A-levels in Mathematics and Further Mathematics. You will then choose your third and fourth A-level from either the subjects taught at the LUSoM campus, such as Physics, Chemistry or Computer Science, or select from any other Level 3 subject taught at Cardinal Newman College.

“Exeter Maths School interested me because I liked the concept of going to a school where I wasn’t odd or weird for liking maths. They offered all the subjects that I wanted to do and it meant that everyone there would be studying Maths or Further Maths, which was different to my secondary school sixth form where about 5 people would be studying them.  The community was very close – the teachers felt like friends and everyone was like me. It felt very supportive and inviting – we all appreciated maths jokes!”

Susan Ross, graduate of Exeter Maths School and currently studying MSc Mathematics (Study Abroad) at Lancaster University.

We will welcome our first cohort in 2022.
