There are two open maths schools located in London and Exeter. Four more schools are in the pre-opening stage and will be located in Cambridge, Liverpool, Surrey and Lancashire. The Department is developing a network of new maths schools across England, working with leading universities and building on the success of the two open schools. The Government is committed to opening more maths schools.

The Department has acknowledged that there might be some areas of the country where there were no proposals that met our quality standard in this competition. The Department will review the extent of geographical ‘cold spots’ in Institutes of Technology provision to determine whether a future competition should be considered.
