Taster Days are the only way to get a true feel of the unique, informal atmosphere at Exeter Maths School.  We start the day with a presentation from our Head, Kerry Burnham, before the students break off into groups to experience lessons in Maths, Physics and Computer Science.  Parents are welcome to join in the Head’s presentation and Q&A session.
