2023 – 2024

A programme designed to inspire young students with mathematics via a series of hands-on sessions.

Supported by The Heilbronn Institute Small Grants Scheme

Royal Institution (RI) Mathematics Masterclasses are free hands-on and interactive extracurricular sessions led by talented teachers and industry leaders for school students all around the UK. The RI originally ran Secondary Mathematics Masterclasses for students aged between 12 and 14 and they have since extended the programme to provide Mathematics Masterclasses for primary aged pupils.

The unique sessions, designed and delivered by teachers in collaboration with the Royal Institution, go beyond the school curriculum to introduce children to problem solving skills through the work of history’s most famous mathematicians. This activity is on-going. It happens every term, on the three weeks either side of half term. Each term, a new cohort of schools and pupils attends as the sessions repeat. The same schools can attend, but with different pupils.
