Our ethos – Freedom for thinkers
What could be more creative than exploring the secrets of the universe?
At Exeter Mathematics School we love getting our teeth into the mind-bending challenges and revelations of maths, physics and computing. So we have set about designing the perfect environment for this special kind of creativity to thrive.
That means minimising the things that often stifle enthusiasm for our favourite subjects – classmates who don’t care; lessons that are just about passing exams. And it means bringing together a really eclectic, intrepid group of students who share our enthusiasm and have the grit to get stuck in.
Our special formula has three key ingredients…
No-one needs forcing to do anything – you wear what you like, work with teachers as equals and build the confidence to pursue the ideas that really interest you without the normal scaffolding you would expect in sixth form study.
We push you further – with awesome teaching, opportunities to work with top Exeter University academics and loads of big, baffling, open-ended (and sometimes unsolvable) questions.
And you’re part of one big family – we’re close-knit and we all know each other, so even when you’re boldly exploring new horizons, you’re looked after every step of the way.
Last year our pioneering formula got a resounding thumbs-up from Ofsted. But the verdict that matters to us – because we hear it direct from students and parents – is that, by freeing up our students to explore the subjects they love inside out, we get to change their lives.
