LUSoM Facilities and About Us

About us


Based in Preston, the School boasts a variety of facilities including fit-for-purpose classrooms, specialist laboratories, social spaces and the LUSoM café. Areas are available for collaboration between groups of students. LUSoM is the first maths school in the country to open within a specifically designed, brand-new building. A large auditorium (with a capacity of 400) with 4k projection and high quality seating allows large-group lectures, masterclasses and other events to take place.

The top-floor café opens onto a rooftop social terrace, offering spectacular views across Preston. The school building is close to the main campus of Cardinal Newman College and LUSoM students can access college facilities and activities. The site on London Road has excellent transport links with direct bus services. Secure, covered cycle parking and showers are available.

LUSoM Cafe Coffee

Developed in partnership with academics from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Lancaster University, students attending the school benefit from virtual and physical access to facilities at the University.


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 in meant that everyone there would be studying Maths, or Further Maths which was different to my Secondary School Sixth Form where about five 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 appreciate Maths jokes!
