Lancaster University School of Mathematics (LUSOM) Online and on Campus Revision Sessions
As part of our continuing links with LUSoM, there are a number of taster sessions and lectures, both online and on the campus that are available for pupils in KS3 and KS4.
This is a 13-week revision programme designed for Year 11 pupils aiming for grades 7 – 9 at GCSE. Starting in September, and meeting each week online, these sessions will go through various key topics to secure a top grade at GCSE and support the transition to A-level Mathematics.
These sessions received fantastic feedback last year with 96% of pupils agreeing they found the lectures very useful and 86% confirming they sessions were at the correct difficulty level.
Each session will cover a different topic, and hence students should aim to attend all 10 sessions.

This programme is designed for high-ability KS3/KS4 students who have a passion and interest for mathematics and want to go beyond their normal lessons. The sessions will cover material which is not on the GCSE syllabus and will show students some of the incredible uses that mathematics can have once it’s taken at a higher level.
Meeting once every half term on campus for 1.5 hours, students will tackle mathematics in completely new contexts to develop their problem-solving techniques and their breadth of mathematical knowledge.
Last year, 100% of students agreed that these sessions helped in developing mathematical thinking, increased the depth of understanding and improved presentation skills.
