Our Mission and Aim

Our Mission

To empower exceptional young people to push the boundaries of mathematics and science so that they can change the world for the better.

Our Aim

It is our aim to provide all students with the opportunity to pursue their mathematical and scientific potential within a community of likeminded individuals who together form a caring and supportive community. 

Our College Ethos

The ethos of our college is such that all who come here are valued as individuals. It is important that each person is treated fairly and is shown respect by other students and adults. Students should never be allowed to feel that sexism, elitism, racism, etc. are acceptable. We expect all members of our college – students, parents, and staff – to adhere to the guidelines, requiring these to be applied consistently. All members of staff have an important role to play in promoting good behaviour. 


NatMatSci is a place where: 

All individuals are respected, and their individuality valued.

Students are encouraged to achieve.

Self-discipline is promoted, and good behaviour is the norm.

Rewards and sanctions are applied fairly and consistently.

Bullying, disruption, and harassment are not tolerated.

Early intervention is the norm.

About the College

History of the College

In 2011 it became clear that there was a growing demand for a specialised STEM college.  The result was The National Mathematics and Science College, a unique concentration of skill and talent with the aim of preparing the world’s best students to read Maths, Science, Medicine and other top disciplines at the world’s leading universities.

After several years of planning by the College’s founders, The National Mathematics and Science College opened its doors in September 2016 and has gone from strength to strength since.
