We coordinate national and international maths challenges for young people. Our Enrichment programme provides mentoring and an opportunity to be selected for UKMT Summer School.


Each year, over 700,000 young people take part in UKMT maths challenges. We enrich thousands of students through our maths books, mentoring programmes and Summer School.


We are a volunteer-led charity powered by 400 volunteers who manage the challenges and enrichment activities. We are governed by a Board of Trustees and a staff team.
