The new University of Liverpool Maths School is launching a second round of recruitment for September 2020 entry, with an aptitude test and interviews planned for March.
The first cohort of prospective students, consisting of14 boys and 13 girls, have already undertaken the aptitude test which covered everything from algebra to painted cubes.
Students who took the exam will now attend an informal discussion in the coming weeks to further explore if the Maths School is the right sixth form for them. All places are conditional on students achieving agreed grades in their GCSEs.
Due to continued interest, a second aptitude test for entry 2020 will take place in March 2020. Those wishing to take the aptitude test, need to have applied first. Further information about how to apply for the second round of recruitment can be found here.
Headteacher Damian Haigh said: “It was great to see such a dedicated and passionate group of students attend our first aptitude test and we look forward to welcoming a second cohort of students to undertake our next aptitude test. In addition to this, our evening classes have been really successful and are now attract up to 100 students with local schools supporting the additional resource and encouraging their students to come along.”
A programme of Open Evenings and Taster Days are planned for the spring and summer. Further details on these can be found here.
During the next few months the Maths School will be advertising a number of new teaching posts. If you are interested in these and wish to keep up-to-date with all the latest news from the Maths School, please follow their twitter account: @LivMathsSchool
