Free Maths masterclasses for strong S1 students

The education charity TalentEd runs a national programme, Maths Masterclass Tutorials,  designed to stretch the most able maths students, in order to increase the number and diversity of excellent mathematicians. They currently have over 500 high-achieving students in S2-4 receiving weekly maths online tutorials in small groups. Around 50% of masterclass students are from disadvantaged backgrounds.

TalendEd now need your help to recruit the new cohort of S1 students!

This is an extraordinary opportunity for students, designed to put them on the path to maths excellence.

The first term of ten masterclasses are free for all students, and students from disadvantaged backgrounds will continue to have free places for five years. The remaining students who wish to continue will receive subsidised places at £5 per masterclass.

How can students join Maths Masterclasses?

The first step is for students to attend one of the TalentEd introductory webinars, running on Sunday 3rd October at 7pm and Tuesday 5th October at 7pm.

Towards the end of these webinars, students will be invited to a follow-up webinar, during which we will pose maths questions to help us find the right programme for each student. Any student who cannot be accommodated in a maths masterclass will be invited to a series of ten maths webinars presented by notable maths speakers, such as Simon Singh (author of “Fermat’s Last Theorem”) and Junaid Mubeen (Countdown champion). These FREE webinars are designed to develop problem-solving skills.
