Exeter University is to open a new free school specialising in maths. The school will be jointly run with Exeter College. It is expected to open in September next year, and will cater for around 120 pupils: 16 to 19 year-olds who want to study maths.

A fifth of them will be able to board at the university between Monday and Thursday in a bid to attract youngsters from across the South West.
