All maths is play to a mathematician. We bring this playful attitude to exploring challenging maths together with our friends and peers
Explore challenging maths with friends and peers
Grow playful attitudes to maths
Create happy maths memories
You might think that meeting up to do maths can’t offer much of a fulfilling social opportunity. At Maths Explorers, we know it absolutely can – when we invest in helping the social atmosphere thrive, like it can do at a club!
We’ve run our clubs with children and adults in this social way for years now, making an activity-based maths meet-up the anchor upon which social learning around the practice of maths skills & understanding can grow.
Poetic licence allows the artist in us to break the rules of language so as to say or discover something new.
The mathematician in us can play with mathematical techniques and ideas in just this way too.
Every one of us has a mathematician inside of us, just as we have an artist, a writer, a scientist…. every one of us can become an even better mathematician.
Join our clubs for a chance to relax, play around and tinker with maths ideas, building curiosity and subject knowledge along the way.
Experiencing wonder and beauty in maths can open doors to building happy maths memories and meaningful maths experiences – deepening our sense of connection and belonging to maths ideas
Children at our clubs can immerse themselves in a challenging yet relaxed maths enrichment atmosphere where the process of problem-solving itself – enquiring, noticing, thinking and sharing mathematically, are more valuable than just the pursuit of ‘correct’ answers.
Hope to see you soon at one of our clubs!
Practice is really important. Many times in life, we’ll want to wear our mathematician’s hat really well. To do this, practising how to play with maths patterns, learning how to spot them and manoeuvre them better and better is key – and it’s a lifelong skill we can invest in.
In our clubs, we’ll learn how to play as well as practise maths together. We hope that what may begin as two distinct approaches to maths in our students’ minds, will eventually converge as one and the same thing, drawing out deeper enjoyment and success with their future maths journeys.

…and then it wasn’t! I did it!” Year 6 Explorer
If you would like more information or to sign up for a free trial or a term of clubs, please click the button below and we’ll be in touch! Registration is now open for Autumn (September) 2021!
Children usually join clubs in roughly similar age bands, for example 7-9 (year 3/4) or 9-11 (year 5/6). However, decisions on age groupings tend to be more to do with children’s prior interest and experience with maths, rather than strictly by age, year groups or ability.
If you would prefer your child to join a year group younger or older than their academic year, please just get in touch with us for a quick chat, it usually isn’t a problem at all depending on their prior maths experience already.
All new children are welcome to a free trial of our club and can trial in any week of term depending on availability. If it works out and they would like to sign on, the cost is £12/child/club with discounts available for siblings.
Payment is requested for 3, 6 or 12 week blocks, you can choose your preferred payment block and the fee is adjusted for the week of term you start in. If at any stage you need to withdraw from the clubs, you just need to let us know and we refund for any weeks left on your account.
Clubs begin week commencing 6th September and end week commencing 6th December (with a 2 week break for half-term). All times given are UK local times. If your preferred club is currently full, with a waiting list open, please still pop your details down in our form and we will be in touch as soon as a place opens up. Thank you!
