LUSoM Head Teacher wins National Recognition Award

Peter Tiltman, Head of Lancaster University School of Mathematics, a specialist maths sixth form in the heart of Preston last week won an award for ‘Special Recognition for services to education and voluntary contribution’ at the British Education Awards, presented at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester. He had been nominated by Professor Dame Madeleine Julia Atkins, DBE, DL, FAcSS, the president of Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge University after his work on Lucy Cavendish’s Academic Enrichment Programme.


Peter said ‘I am truly honoured and humbled to receive the award. I originally got involved with Lucy Cavendish’s enrichment programme as a number of our students have applied for and succeeded in getting places. At LUSoM we are constantly promoting opportunities for our students to broaden their subject knowledge to make them able to access courses at the top universities.’


Lancaster University School of Mathematics has seen success in its first year at getting students places at the top universities with three students out of its first cohort of thirty-one getting offers at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.


Amin Babor Chowdhury from the British Education Awards, said:

“Peter’s work both here and overseas is an absolute inspiration and thoroughly merits this prestigious award. Aside from being an exceptional educator, he ensures the highest standards for all of his students, regardless of their background and adhering to our philosophy that great education is for all.

The pandemic caused a huge upheaval in education, changing the way we teach and learn. The reason we got through it successfully? Educators like Peter Tiltman.”
