Information about the provider

King's College London Mathematics School (KCLMS), run in partnership with King's College London, opened in 2014 to provide high-quality mathematics education in the heart of London. The provision combines mathematics with physics, economics and computing to give learners the key understanding and skills they will need to study mathematical courses at university. Learners take a GCE AS level in either computer science or economics at the end of the first year and GCE A levels in mathematics, further mathematics and physics at the end of their second year.

Approximately 140 learners study at KCLMS, divided equally between each year group. The provision has a selective admissions policy and attracts highly gifted mathematicians aged 16 to 19 from a wide range of backgrounds across London and the Home Counties. The proportion of learners from a Black or other minority ethnic heritage is similar to that of other sixth-form centres in London.
