Mathematical Circles

Free two-day enrichment events to engage and enthuse

Mathematical Circles are designed for young people with an interest in mathematics. They aim to promote mathematical thinking and provide an opportunity for participants to meet other students who enjoy mathematics.

Over two consecutive days, students will take part in demanding and stimulating sessions led by experienced mathematics communicators.

The events are open to students in Year 10 (England and Wales), S3 (Scotland) or Year 11 (Northern Ireland).

We will send invitations directly to schools in the vicinity of each event in good time.
