Leeds Mathematics School (LMaS) will join a national network of Maths Schools and is a unique partnership between The GORSE Academies Trust and the University of Leeds. Due to open in September 2023, the partnership will bring together two of Leeds’ most successful education providers and seek to establish Leeds as a city where the study of mathematics is second to none.

The aim is to provide an enriched and immersive mathematical education and bring together the most talented students who have a passion and fascination for mathematics. Our vision is to bring exceptional mathematics teaching to Leeds, providing the inspiration and support for highly numerate students to flourish and prepare them for future opportunities that mathematics can bring. We are determined, through the establishment of this Maths School, to ensure that poverty and deprivation should in no way limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise.

We are keen to design an innovative curriculum and an approach to teaching and learning that better prepares students for the study of mathematics (or related subjects) at undergraduate level. Equally important is bridging the gap between LMaS and the cutting-edge industries into which our highly qualified young people will pass.
