Why work for us?

A-level Results

Students at The National Mathematics and Science College achieve incredible results. In the summer of 2022, we achieved outstanding results with 51% of results being awarded an A* and 77% of results being awarded an A* or an A.

University Destinations

Students from The National Mathematics and Science College regularly go on to gain places at some of the very best universities around the world, those universities which can change the trajectory of your life. Over the last three years around 205% of our students gained places in Oxbridge with many others going on to Imperial, UCL, Manchester and Bristol, reading a range of subjects including Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering and Biomedical Sciences.

Preparation for Medicine Programme

Alongside our A-level programme we have a specialist Preparation for Medicine Programme which builds on the A-level programme to provide a rich programme of activities and opportunities which help ensure that our budding medics are fully prepared. This programme includes a range of visiting speakers, lectures and visits as well as specialist mentoring and preparation for the relevant entrance papers.

Going Beyond

A-level success and university destinations are clearly important, but they represent only part of the success of our students. The College is alive with enquiry; all around the College you will find whiteboards full of challenging questions. Throughout the day, independently or in groups, you will find students working to solve these taxing problems that go beyond the A-level specification.

Through this and the expert teaching they receive, our students go on to achieve outstanding successes in national and international competitions. For two consecutive years our students have represented the UK in International Olympiads, and our students have enjoyed significant success in the Euclid, UKMT Senior Mathematics Challenge, as well as the Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Informatics and Linguistics Olympiads. Students in the College regularly perform in the top 10% of all UK entries in these competitions.

Our students achieve more Olympiad success per capita than any other school in the country.

Boarding Facilities

Our boarding facilities represent some of the best in the sector. With modern single en-suite rooms and shared communal kitchens, students get to experience some of the feel of university life, whilst having the safety and support provided by our team of excellent boarding staff. The boarding accommodation is right next to the teaching block, making it quick and easy to move between the two, meaning no time is lost travelling. Our boarding community represents an exciting and culturally diverse community. Our smaller size means that it has the feel of a large and caring family where everyone knows everyone else. In addition, every student has membership to a top quality gym and swimming pool just a couple of minutes' walk from the College.

Pastoral Care

Our students are supported through a joined up pastoral care programme made up of their College tutors, boarding staff, our professional College Counsellor, all ably led by our Pastoral Co-ordinator. Alongside their academic studies our students also cover key personal areas in our specialist taught PSHE programme.

Beyond the Classroom

The learning at The National Mathematics and Science College never stops and extends well beyond the classroom door. With a wide range of academic clubs and student-led societies, as well as a large number of masterclasses, trips and visits. Learning is a practical discipline, and so both in and out of the classroom we put a high priority on giving students practical experience wherever possible. It is through this practical work that our students really come to life. They move from being students to scientists in their own right.

STEM Communication Programme

So that our students can make a meaningful difference in the world, and put their scientific and mathematical knowledge to use, we also prepare them with the necessary communication skills. This is done through a programme which involves a combination of external lectures and workshops and an internal programme of skills development (including data science skills in python, and use of LaTeX), and opportunities for students to practice their research and communication skills through a range of projects.

Our philosophy of teaching, our proven latticework of pastoral care, our phenomenal facilities, all help our students to leave their comfort zone. Then, extraordinary things can happen: the rate of progress accelerates dramatically. Here there are no barriers to how far or fast you can progress. We never slow talent down. We are a community of like-minded people, with some of the finest, most successful teachers in the country.
