Last week the Department for Education agreed a Maths and Science sixth form for Chesterton Community College Trust. Since the announcement there has been some understandable confusion about the relationship between the school, currently called the 'Cambridge Maths School', and Cambridge Mathematics.
Firstly, this is not one of the Government's Maths Specialist Colleges announced in January, and modelled on the Kings and Exeter schools. As we understand it, it is intended to support A level Maths and Science learning for the community which Chesterton Community College currently serves.
Secondly, despite the name, the Cambridge Mathematics project is not a sponsor of the school. Cambridge Maths is not sponsoring any schools; however we were happy to support their application as we support the aims of a rich curriculum offer for all.
We have contacted the leaders of the new school regarding the confusion over the name and their use of our logo without permission.
We hope this statement clarifies the situation.
