Since we started in 2004, we have worked closely with employers and other bodies who share our passion for encouraging teenagers to pursue mathematical subjects to a higher level. Thanks to partnerships with universities including Newcastle, Kent, Birmingham and Sheffield Hallam, and sponsorship from companies such as Admiral, KPMG and Hewlett Packard we have been able to grow our national programme while heavily subsidising ticket prices, making the shows affordable to as wide a range of schools as possible. Over 125,000 teenagers have attended our shows in the last ten years.
"Admiral has gone from start-up to a £4 billion company by using Maths cleverly and creatively , and enjoying ourselves while doing it. We sponsor Maths Inspiration because it helps thousands of teenagers understand that maths can be both useful and fun."
David Stevens CBE, Co-Founder Admiral Group plc.
"Maths Inspiration is exactly what is needed to motivate teenagers to pursue mathematical subjects beyond the age of 16."
John Cridland CBE, former Director General of the CBI
"Maths Inspiration has been a great venture for us to work with as they inspire the next generation of Mathematicians, Engineers and Computer Scientists."
Karen Fitzgerald, Head of Education Solutions, Hewlett Packard EMEA.

Sponsorship is essential if we are to grow our programme and ensure that we attract teenagers from all backgrounds. We have four levels of involvement:
Sponsor a series of shows (for example all the shows in a particular region)
Sponsor a single show, perhaps in the city where you are based.
Commit to purchasing tickets on behalf of target schools in your selected city or region.
Help us to develop new material for shows, including offering us potential speakers.
In return, we can tailor a package to suit each sponsor that can include branding of our promotional materials, exclusive use of the theatre foyer for display stands, acknowledgment and links on our popular website and the chance to engage directly with teachers and students.
If you would like to see Maths Inspiration in action, you would be welcome to attend one of our shows as our guest.
