If you’re excited by the idea of Exeter Maths School, but you live beyond the range of a practical daily commute, it’s worth considering our Weekly Boarding option. Every year students from North and West Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset stay over and – judging by the feedback – really enjoy building their independence and learning new skills such as cooking. EMS boarders are guided and looked after by our dedicated pastoral and accommodation tutors who really understand what it’s like living in a city away from home. They are brilliant at combining a welcoming and sociable atmosphere with the hard working ethos of Exeter Mathematics School.
We prioritise accommodation for students that have a daily commute of more than 1 hour each way. Students are able to live in Exeter from Monday to Friday during term time, going home each Friday afternoon to spend the weekends with their families.
There is a charge for accommodation. We have a bursary fund to ensure that students from low income families are assisted to help meet this cost.
If you would like to access accommodation please indicate this on your application to the school. Following the entrance test, if you are still being considered for a place at EMS, we will contact you with more details and will ask you to indicate which of the two options you would prefer. We highly recommend that all students with over a 1 hour commute each way consider applying for accommodation.
A deposit will be required to secure a place.
