Annal Nayyar blogs –that the DfE have announced New specialist maths Free School to be regional centre of excellence

A new specialist maths Free School approved by Education Secretary Michael Gove will be a regional centre of excellence preparing students for rigorous degrees.

The Free School, to be run by Exeter University and Exeter College, will attract 16- to 19-year-old mathematicians and will be based in Exeter.

The ultimate aim is to create a network of schools that operate across England which identify and nurture mathematical and scientific talent. This is similar to the Russian model, which includes the renowned Kolmogorov School in Moscow, established by Andrei Kolmogorov – one of the 20th century’s most respected mathematicians.
