LMaS will be a unique sixth form school for Leeds, providing a specialised curriculum for students who have a passion and flair for mathematics.
As one of only a handful of Mathematics Schools in the country, we firmly believe that LMaS will provide opportunities for students that they may not normally have in traditional sixth form provisions.
The primary aim of LMaS is to prepare our most mathematically able students to succeed in mathematics-related disciplines at highly selective universities and pursue mathematically intensive careers.
Thank you for wanting to find out more about Leeds Mathematics School. Maybe you’ve already explored this website or read our prospectus or come to an Open Event, or perhaps you’ve only just heard about our school and our partnership with the University of Leeds and its world-class professors. I’m delighted you’re excited by this unique opportunity for your sixth form study.
When I was in the sixth form, I loved Maths and I wanted to go to a top university to continue studying Maths. I had dedicated, knowledgeable teachers and tutors who helped make that possible for me, and you will have the same at Leeds Mathematics School: outstanding classroom teaching, personalised pastoral support, and excellent university and careers advice. You will explore your chosen subjects further and deeper than the A-level syllabuses. You’ll work collaboratively with mentors from industry and the University of Leeds to tackle real-world problems. You’ll have amazing experiences outside the classroom: sports and activities, career placements and work experience, volunteering and charity.
If you love Maths, you’ll love LMaS.

Sign up at the bottom of this page so we can keep in touch with you and let you know the dates of these. Come and say hello and ask me why 153 is my favourite number!
Vision & Ethos
Our vision is to bring exceptional mathematics teaching to Leeds, providing the inspiration and support for highly numerate students to flourish, preparing them for the future opportunities that mathematics can bring.
We passionately believe that this vision is applicable for any student, irrespective of their background. At the core of our aspiration is a desire to widen participation in A Level and degree level mathematics for students who do not traditionally engage with this subject.
When you join Leeds Mathematics School you will be joining a unique school, founded by two of the highest profile education institutions in the region: the University of Leeds and The GORSE Academies Trust. Both partners have incredibly strong traditions of achieving high-quality academic outcomes for students, combined with the development of a breadth of wider skills for their future lives.
Alongside the education we provide to our own students, we will deliver engaging outreach programmes for the development of mathematics in Leeds. These programmes will involve students from primary age upwards, supporting children in developing a greater love for mathematics and building networks with like-minded peers. Through this work we will provide the opportunity to deepen and broaden mathematical skills and provide support for students as they undertake their GCSE examinations.
Working at LMaS
As we move towards our opening date, we will be able to share more detail about potential opportunities to join the LMaS team and contribute towards this exciting journey. If you are interested in learning more about LMaS and exploring future opportunities within our school, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
Put simply, teaching and non-teaching professionals can have a profound impact on the experience of students, the outcomes they achieve and their personal, emotional and social development. Working at LMaS will provide colleagues with an opportunity to work alongside students with a real passion for mathematics and science. If you share this passion and feel you have the right skills and characteristics to make a difference, we would love to hear from you.
The opportunity that LMaS presents will enable colleagues to impact not just the students who attend the school but also, through our outreach programmes, to make a lasting impression on students throughout the city region.
Any current vacancies for LMaS are available to view via the GORSE Academies Trust website.
