Maths, Stats and Physics Outreach for Schools

Maths, Stats and Physics Outreach for Schools

Our events are aimed at promoting the study of mathematics, statistics and physics at A Level and beyond.


In light of the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics have cancelled or postponed all remaining outreach events until January 2021. This date may be extended as the situation progresses.

We hope to restart our outreach programme as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so, please check back here for updates.
