This course was sponsored by The Goldsmiths' Company as one of their Science for Society Courses. It was aimed at teachers of GCE Advanced-Level Mathematics, and other secondary school teachers who had studied mathematics to at least GCE advanced level. It ran for the first time in 2008. The course director was Dr Francis Wright and the course was taught by several Queen Mary academic staff, who each focused on their own research and/or teaching interests.

This course was not directly about teaching, but was intended to inform and inspire teachers of advanced-level mathematics and science-related subjects. Sessions ranged from expanding on GCE Further Mathematics topics to explaining current research at Queen Mary and the application and relevance of modern mathematics in today's technology. The course covered mathematical computing and cryptography, and included a visit to, for example, the National Codes Centre at Bletchley Park or the London Science Museum.

It was a 5-day residential course held on the Queen Mary Mile End campus, which began on a Sunday evening in late July and ended after lunch on the following Friday. Accommodation was provided in the new Queen Mary student village. Participants only needed to pay their travel costs to and from Queen Mary; all teaching, accommodation and subsistence costs during the course were paid by The Goldsmiths' Company.
