A specialist school for mathematicians aged 16-19
Our state-funded school is for highly motivated students aged 16-19 with a particular aptitude and enthusiasm for mathematics.
King's College London Mathematics School has just opened its doors to its first cohort of students. We are proud that the Secretary of State for Education, Nicola Morgan MP, officially opened the school on 22 September 2014 - click here to read all about it.
We are currently taking applications for our second cohort of students to study maths, further maths, physics and computing from September 2015. Find out more about our application process, our open evenings and taster days.
Why do we exist?
This initiative is part of the Government’s plans to improve mathematics education in the state sector and increase the number of young people with the right levels of mathematical attainment to study STEM subjects at top-rated universities.
What will we achieve?
We aim to increase substantially the pool of high attaining and well trained young mathematicians in this country. We will do this first by recruiting intensively among young people with mathematical curiosity who currently have limited access to high quality sixth form provision, and second by providing them with a curriculum which will offer challenge, creativity and excitement.
