Attending Masterclasses

Find out how you or your pupils can attend our Masterclasses

Student nominations

Masterclass organisers invite nearby schools to nominate students to attend the masterclasses. These nominations are made on the basis of teacher recommendations and groups are looking not just for aptitude, but also keenness and a determination to explore.

Students attend a complete series of masterclasses, allowing them to experience a range of mathematical or engineering topics and develop their knowledge and understanding throughout the series.

Schools first

Since students must be nominated by their schools, it is important to contact the school first to find out if they are, or have been, involved in masterclasses nearby. If they have not been in contact with a local group, they are welcome to contact the Ri Masterclass team to find out about nearby availability.

View the maps of current Primary Mathematics, Secondary Mathematics and Engineering Masterclasses across the UK. We are also launching a new Computer Science Masterclass network.


If you are keen to nominate students but have not already been in contact with a local group, please email the Masterclass team at

Where possible, we will put you in contact with nearby organisers. Our networks are continually expanding, and new groups start each year.

You may be interested in getting involved in the Masterclasses yourself as a helper or speaker, or in helping to organise a local series. If so, please get in touch.

You can visit our resources section for some masterclass-style activities to use in your own teaching.


  • The workshops were highly interactive, using everyday resources in exciting ways. The activities gave me lots of ideas on how I could improve my lessons in class.

  • Masterclasses always encourage me to try new things and to be aware of post-Primary maths awaiting the children I work with.
