National Maths Summer School

Our National Maths Summer Schools (NMSS) are designed for young people with an interest in maths. They aim to promote mathematical thinking and provide an opportunity for participants to meet other like-minded students, volunteers and maths teachers. These residential events are one week long.

Who can go?

Invitations are sent to students selected at random from the top 1.5% of results from the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, in Years 10-11 (England, Wales) or S3-S4 (Scotland) and Years 11-12 (Northern Ireland). Students must be aged 14-16 years. Invitations are sent through schools in March. Half of the students are girls and 80% are from state schools.

Only one student per school can be invited, and only students who have the right to reside in the UK are eligible. Schools cannot send students two years in a row to ensure wider access.
