The National Mathematics and Science College is a co-educational establishment dedicated to providing a world-class education in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to students aged fifteen and over who wish to gain places at the world’s leading universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and top Russell Group universities in the UK.
Our students aim to achieve the highest grades at A level and will, therefore, be in a tremendously strong position to obtain a place at a leading university of their choice.
Why do we focus on the STEM subjects?
Students who study STEM subjects at A-level are equipping themselves with extremely valuable qualifications in areas of knowledge which are in great demand in employment and in higher education.
STEM subjects are not only academically rigorous but also equip students with powerful transferrable skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and teamwork.
“To educate young people in an international context, who are capable of achieving A grades at A-level and who wish to secure places in the world’s elite universities; and who will become future leaders of their communities, business and academic research.”
“Preseverantia Innovatio Ductu” – Persistence Innovation Leadership
The National Mathematics and Science College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It is our aim that all students fulfil their potential.
Our COLLEGE ETHOS
The National Science and Mathematics College is expected to be 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;
• there is an emphasis on self-discipline
The ethos of our college is such that all who come here are valued as individuals. Students are given clear guidance as to what is, and is not, acceptable behaviour, so that they can develop their own moral code. 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. A particular strength is our approach to Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development (SMSC).
