A day in the life

The Cambridge Maths School will help to prepare you for independent study and life at university.

We expect all students to start the day together, at 9.30a.m. The formal day will end at 4:00p.m. and you will have the option to stay later to discuss problems with their peers, engage in independent study, or speak to your teachers.

Class sizes will be small, maximum 15 students, so that you will receive lots of individual attention.

Not every lesson will operate in the traditional sense: some will be given over to independent study and some to visits to, or talks from, Cambridge University lecturers. As you progress through Year 12 and into Year 13, tutors will help you to make your own decisions about when you should be in school and when you might plan to use your time independently.


Here is an example timetable for a student studying for 4 A-Levels.
